After you cross Broadway and pass the Foodmaster grocery store, you will see blue signs on the right for Tufts University as you enter a rotary. Follow the blue signs and take a sharp right (and first right in the rotary) up the hill on Powder House Boulevard. At the third traffic light turn left onto Packard Avenue. You are now on the Tufts campus. Take your next right onto Talbot Avenue. The Granoff Music Center is the last building on the street on your right.

Gamelan rehearsals are in the World Music Room (M085), located on the lower level of the Music Department Building. The closest entrance is from the parking lot near the music library. There is a door that opens up near the track field. Go in the two sets of doors and turn to the left. The World Music Room will be on the right side past the Fisher Performance hall on the left.

During the summer and at other times when Tufts is not in session, the door near the World Music Room will probably be locked. Instead, enter through the main doors on Talbot avenue. (The door to the right of the revolving door will be the one most likely unlocked.)
