“The steelpan is a perfect instrument, as the basic skills are easy to learn and playing the instrument does not require any previous musical experience. It is possible for a group with any level of musical experience to accomplish a simple melody within a short period of time”.
Steelpan workshops, presentations and school assemblies are a great way to teach people of all ages about the only new instrument to be invented in the last century which originates from the twin islands of Trinidad & Tobago. It is also a proven fact that steelpan music enhances the senses of various disabilities and can be therapeutic for various illnesses including mental health. Through our interactive workshops, people of all ages will have an opportunity to actually play a steel procession instrument. We have developed these educational workshops into themed parties, drop-in activities at events and team bonding.
All workshops include a CRB qualified tutor(s), an introduction about the history and range of steelpans with the opportunity to listen and play the instruments.
