Creating Music, Uniting People, Building Communities

Steel Drum Lessons

Teaching Style

Inspired by the teaching methods in Trinidad (birthplace of the steel pan), students learn by rote in group settings. There is no need to read music nor have prior music background. Each song is learned a couple notes at a time with repetition. Students don’t have to have a steel drum at home to practice, so there is no homework! Learning in a group setting combined with the teacher’s positive encouraging style, creates a very uplifting environment to learn.
