The Caribbean Steel Pans Book, written by educator and professional percussionist Andy Gleadhill, shows generalist teachers how to teach Steel Pans in a class setting. Although all of the tunes and exercises in the book can be played on any steel pan instrument, Andy focusses on the Jumbie Jam steel pan and its use in an educational setting. Using the same approach that has so successfully helped hundreds of generalist teachers to introduce African Drumming, Indonesian Gamelan, Brazilian Samba and other World Music styles in classrooms all over the UK, Andy shows you the basic techniques, warm-up exercises and covers all the elements of music whilst helping you and the class progress rapidly through 10 weekly lessons, to the point that the class can perform a range of Steel Pan pieces. A selection of video clips will soon be available on line that further support teacher and pupils by giving practical demonstrations of the techniques and pieces covered in the Guide.
