During November 2008, Gamelan Padhang Moncar held several workshops for the public and members of Victoria University staff. We performed a traditional Javanese piece, showcasing the two different tuning systems and then participants asked questions about the music before getting hands-on. During the workshop, they learned basic technique, how to play a simple piece and more about how the music works, by moving around the ensemble and trying a range of instruments - including those gongs!.
