Students will also get to learn to play angklung, an Indonesian traditional instrument made of bamboo, officially recognized by UNESCO as an Indonesian “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.” Students will learn different types of music, from Indonesian folk to Western pop to be played on angklung. All attendees will play the angklung together as an ensemble led by the instructor, and there will be a final performance that showcases the students' work throughout the camp. This event can be done outdoor or indoor, and each person will hold his/her/their own instrument. Each angklung consists of one pitch and each person will hold a different pitch. Therefore, it is also an excellent teaching tool for music solfege. Students will also make some Indonesian arts and crafts. By the end of this camp, students will gain more understanding of Indonesian culture, and hopefully, be able to appreciate the diversity that exists in their communities.
