Kotekan: A Cooperative Music Activity

Young musicians explore the rhythms and sounds of Balinese gamelan music, then create their own. They listen to several examples of gamelan music, then use their instruments to mimic the rhythms they hear. After a warm up and practice, they compose two lines of rhythm based on Kotekan Techniques. These rhythms will be played in tandem with a fellow musician.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
