3rd September 2019; Since July 2019 for 4 sessions, students from Hougang Secondary School Angklung Ensemble has been teaching residents how to play the angklung. Students start with a fun exercise or game activity to get the seniors warmed up before playing the angklung. Playing the angklung for the first time was quite an experience for the residents as many had not played any musical instrument before.
It was a fun activity and it benefit the residents in listening, shaking the angklung and playing together. Students taught the residents how to play the tune “Rasa Sayang”. Residents will still need more practice to completely play the tune.
We look forward to welcoming back the students and teachers to our Home to continue with teaching our residents to play the angklung.
