Indonesia Comes to Ealing, part of EMS’s Post-COVID Recovery Programme
EALING MUSIC SERVICE is delighted to join forces with GAMELANING, who have been appointed by the Indonesian Embassy in London to run gamelan music and puppetry projects in schools in the UK as part of their education programme, ‘Indonesia Goes to School’.
Led by Aris Daryono, a gamelan expert, teacher and composer who knows Indonesian culture inside out, you will experience the most enjoyable, unique and memorable as well as educating cultural experience.
The project involves playing traditional gamelan music, making puppets and learning about Indonesian culture through show and tell, playing games, creating stories based on Indonesian legends culminating in a performance on day 5.
Suitable for primary (KS1, KS2), secondary (KS3, KS4) and special schools.
Each 5-day residency can be spread over 2-3 weeks to accommodate schools’ availability.
Each project can take up to 3 classes (90 children).
Gamelan instruments, shadow puppetry and show and tell equipment are provided.
The cost of each 5-day residency is £1250, but with funding from EMS and the Indonesian Embassy, we are able to offer this amazing opportunity for only £450 per school.
As well as developing an understanding of Indonesian culture, the project also supports the national curriculum, particularly in relation to music, art, drama, geography, computing, literacy, science, design technology and anti-bullying. It also encourages to strengthen self-esteem, confidence, teamwork, interaction and respect.
