Why Play Gongs?

Every hand hammered gong is a one-of-a-kind instrument; playing can be a one-of-a-kind experience.

Playing gongs is a great pleasure for various reasons.  A gong is a multi-faceted percussion instrument and players often play for one of more of the following reasons.

1.  Gongs are a tool to help us develop various skills.  Including listening skills, rhythmic skills and the ability to control sound.  

2. Gong playing is therapeutic.  Gongs can produce  "sound baths", which are a unique therapeutic experience by which listeners are bathed in sound.

3. Gong playing adds a distinct and exciting sound to musical groups.  Rock bands, percussion ensembles and orchestras all employ gongs.

There are two main gong types (suspended gongs & gong bowl) & dozens of different gongs within those types.  Gong playing is part of an ancient, therapeutic - musical history.
