Abstract: 
Increasing research interaction between ethnomusicology and music education is used in this article as the context for a study of two community based music groups in Sydney (Australia). Despite commonalities of group history, shared instruments, and styles and repertoires of music performed, these groups, both Balinese gamelan ensembles, exhibit different cultural derivations. These in turn influence the purposes of the groups, and the meanings assigned to participation by the members of each. Through comparison of these two gamelan ensembles, analysis of community music activity is positioned as a means of highlighting the importance of the meaning and value of music as a factor in defining the purposes, and subsequently the outcomes, of music teaching and learning.
