One-credit class opportunity of interest to CHP minors!

In addition to teaching one of the CHP elective courses this fall (MUS 134 Music of Asia, already full), Prof. Clendinning will also be offering a special version of the course MUS 117: Balinese Gamelan Ensemble (1 credit hour). It is unfortunately logistically too hard to practice on the instruments and we’re not allowed to perform this fall, so we’re doing a semester of reading and listening–including reading Dr. Clendinning’s new book, a history/ethnography of gamelan and education in the US. As usual, the class is open to WFU students with any level of past musical experience; we will be joined by some UNCSA students and a few community gamelan players. This course will be particularly of interest to students who are studying music, education, Asian and Asian-American studies, tourism, etc. There also may be some students who would find it rewarding to discuss a new book directly with its author in a low-key, participation-oriented setting.
