There has been little research conducted, particularly on the notation system used in Indonesian traditional music. Music notation is a dying type of written tradition; most local musicians are unaware of the critical nature of recording musical works, let alone interacting through music notation as a medium. The purpose of this paper is to examine the history and styles of written notation as local musicians in Lampung, Indonesia, have practiced them. With a focus on notation's functions and implications. While the issue is essential in and of itself, it also touches on broader concerns such as acculturation, the social organization of performing artists, and the interface between oral and written tradition. Most importantly, we must consider to what extent the usage of notation indicates shifting values and altered circumstances of music learning in Lampung. The data are from a personal 2016-2017 investigation in Bandar Lampung. The results indicated that the gamolan pekhing notation system still has flaws, most notably the inability to comprehend rhythmic values denoted by written symbols. While notation is still beneficial for some artists, it is not frequently comprehended by students during the learning process. It necessitates handson instruction in order to educate the students.
