Angklung & Kolintung Ensemble


About Angklung and Kolintang Ensemble

Angklung and Kolintang Ensemble appeals to students who love the soothing music made from bamboo tubes. The CCA sessions are conducted on Tuesdays, 2.00 – 3.30pm in the music room. 

Angklung and Kolintang Ensemble was awarded the Certificate of Accomplishment for SYF 2018.

Experiences

Members are given the opportunity to make music using Angklung, Kolintang and other traditional instruments.

Members get the opportunity to go on a learning journey at least once per semester. These learning journeys include outdoor performances and musical experiences at the Esplanade. 

Developing our students

During CCA sessions, members acquire musical knowledge of the traditional instruments.
They also develop their musicianship to make music as a team. Members also learn to play different instruments and harmonize with one another to make beautiful melodies
 

Growing hearts and minds

Activities conducted during the CCA sessions are geared towards character building and inculcating the values of team spirit, integrity and empathy. 

Team building activities form an integral part of the CCA as members find meaning through interactions with the other members and their interdependence on each other to achieve a set task. 

Members also learn the value of discipline through playing the correct parts at the right time. Members have reflection activities that focuses on problem-solving, resilience, gratitude and empathy. 

Empowering leaders and talents

Angklung student leaders are empowered to lead the team in some activities such as warm-up exercise. Section leaders also take charge in guiding the juniors in playing their instrument. This provides the opportunity to hone their leadership skills.
