Gamelan continues to be a constant thread of the Music programme here at ISA from Middle School to 12th Grade providing a real-life entrance into a world and a culture whose concepts and attitude to music are excitingly different from those of the western world, as well as being a readily-accessible practical experience for all students, and creating the powerful sense of community which it both requires, and engenders.

The students come from: India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Turkey, United Kingdom, and USA
