Gong Training Level 1 SINGAPORE
Join us for our first gong training in Singapore. Hosted by Space 2B we are delighted to extend our offerings in this exciting city. Space is limited so book early.
Have you ever wished to play a gong? Now is your chance to spend a week surrounded by and becoming one with the sounds of the universe.
In this hands-on workshop you will develop your ability to listen, to become one with the gong, to understand how to tap into and play the universal sound current. The workshop is suitable for all levels from the beginner who has never touched a gong but is interested to learn to those who have had some experience and wish to go the next level. If you own a gong then please bring it with you, if not you will be playing the Red Doors house gongs - the largest collection in Asia. If you wish to purchase a gong prior to the workshop we can help to advise you on your purchase.
Class size is limited to ensure every student has one gong to themselves and to allow for optimum playing and practice time.
