Then there is the ceremony of hand grasping for the beginning. Teacher’s houses are employed as schools. Demonstration is applied with oral transmission from the ability of each student. 2) Luang Pradit Phairoh has developed a way to play ranat-ek (a high-tone xylophone) in practicing various performance styles. The theme songs written by Luang Pradit Phairoh have been performed widely, and some have been composed from the intonation of foreign countries such as Mon, Khmer and Java.
