    Lessons

    You can study many different types of gamelan and dance at Mekar Bhuana. We have taught students from all over the world and our instructors are available available to teach Monday to Friday 9 am – 5 pm. Note that if you are on your own, you can only choose to take a private lesson (you can’t just join an already-formed group, or do a drop-in). You also need to book in advance, normally around two weeks’ ahead.

    Contact us for further information about rates and availability of our instructors. View photos and videos of lessons.

    Read reviews about our lessons on Trip Advisor and find out more about our experience on our Linkedin page.

    If you wish to keep up to date with our lessons or workshops on a day-to-day basis, add Mekar Bhuana’s Facebook page.

    We now offer remote learning with Mekar Bhuana instructors via Skype and Zoom, and are the first organisation in Bali to do this. Contact us for details and prices.

    Booking lessons is essential – once you have confirmed your lessons, please transfer payment at least two weeks before you arrive in Bali to confirm your schedule and instructor. We have three payment options. Note that we do not accept payment on site.

    Accommodation in a nearby boutique hotel (just 250m from Mekar Bhuana) is available. Contact us for further information about rates and photos. If you are more interested in a more intensive programme, see our workshop page.
