You hear and see it but sometimes it is rare to be able to touch and play it as it is only dished out during special events or ceremonies. Now you can try out the various traditional music instruments of Cambodia and create beautiful music. This course will focus on the percussion family of Cambodian instruments, namely the bamboo xylophone and the ring of bells. There are many other types such as the string and wind instruments which includes the Tro Khme, Gong chimes, Drums, Fiddles, Zithers,plucked lutes and flutes.

If you’re interested in very traditional Khmer culture, or a musician exploring different instruments to create music then this will be a perfect chance to not only learn a different type of instrument but also connect with a local musician.

A link to the exact pick up location and the detailed address will be sent to your account email id once the payment is complete.

The host recommends these preparations so that guests can have the best experience.

  • Ready to be enthralled with the sound of Khmer music? :)

I highly recommend any sort of experience that you can have in Cambodia with Backstreet Academy. Even if you have only a few days in Phnom Penh, I would recommend checking out their cultural experiences. I had some music lessons with very professional teachers, teaching Cambodian hand drum, percussion and xylophone. The staff at Backstreet were extremely accomodating and arranged the classes at short notice and I learned a lot about Cambodian music. Compared to other music schools in Phnom Penh, their prices are very good, and in my view you'll get a much more authentic experience of Cambodian traditions by going through them. The music school that provided the lessons also has a dance show on Friday and Saturday nights, which could be a good compliment to the lessons. Thanks Backstreet Academy!

It was great, I leant two songs on the Khmer Xylophone (Ro Neath Ek) the translator and teather were very friendly and relaxed. They talked about the history of Khmer music and the challenges that it is has faced. The addres was slightly confusing it was on street 99 house number 166, it is near St. 484 but not precisely at the corner of St 99 and St 484. I very much enjoyed it. Sam from my Australia :)
