GOTTA HIT A GONG BASIC WORKSHOP with Melanie Giles-Clapp in association with Red Doors Studio (Hong Kong)
4 hours certification (Incl. hands-on gong practice & certificate)
“The gong is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the Universe.”– Yogi Bhajan
In this 4 hours intensive you will learn an overview of the history of the gong, the different types of gongs, the basics of approaching a gong, creating rapport with it, and most importantly learn and practice basic strokes and playing patterns. You will develop your ability to listen, to become one with the gong and to understand how to tap into the universal sound current.
The workshop is suitable for all levels from beginner who has never touched a gong but is interested to learn to those who have had some experience and wish to practice their skills. If you own a gong then please bring it with you, if not you will be playing our in-house gongs. Class size is limited to ensure every student gets plenty of gong time.
