Playing this instrument promotes values of teamwork, discipline, responsibility, mutual respect, concentration, the development of imagination and memory, as well as artistic and musical feelings.(1) Many schools in Southeast Asian countries have included the angklung as part of their musical curriculum and co-curricular activities in order to promote the aforementioned skills and to develop the values of students.
