Provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans. Students in Owatonna have little opportunity for diverse music experiences in cultures different from their own. This artist will provide an experience in music from Indonesia. Fifth grade students will complete an onsite survey following their experience working with the resident artist. The students will be asked to share what they learned and what they enjoyed about their experience.
Gamelan music is communal, during the daily rehearsals and 2 performances the students demonstrated emerging skills in attentiveness, focus, cooperation and respect for the contributions of others.
