Renadi's experience with teaching and workshops date from 1992. He has worked extensively with children from 6 - 12 years old in the Kindermuseum, a department of the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam. As a gamelan teacher he gave workshops in the Tropenmuseum for all ages,, including students and adults, from1994 - 2006. On location workshops include Scholen in de Kunst (Amersfoort) and several schools, elementary and highschools. In all these places Renadi also gave dance and/or pentjak silat workshops.
Renadi really is adept in giving participants a thorough 'first sniff' at the exotic music and dances of Java and Bali. In a very short time (ranging from 20 minutes to 3 hours) participants get a genuine 'hands-on from the inside' experience they'll not forget.
In 2008 a new venue for workshops on Indonesian music and dance will commence in the Gamelanhuis in Amsterdam. The circumstances are ideal: roomy space, good floors for dancing, Balinese Ónd Javanese gamelan ready to play.
