Beginner Steel Drum Band

Artist: Rockcreek Steel Drums

Type: Residencies

Description

This unique music residency brings a complete steel drum band program to your school. Students learn the basics of steel drum playing and performance as they prepare for a final concert. A full sized steel drum instrument is provided for each student. The class learns methods to produce good tone and to play melodies using proper mallet technique. Basic percussion skills are taught using “Tamboo Bamboo” instruments. Students learn to read music symbols and charts from another culture while exploring Calypso music.

Pricing

Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
