This course is technically called "Concert / Beginning Band" in the FCPS Program of Studies and it is a course designed for high school students to learn new instruments, regardless of their musical experience. To that end, we just began offering Steel Pans during this class.
Yes, those really cool and wonderful sounding instruments from the Caribbean!
In this course, open to anyone even if you've never been involved in music in any way, you learn to perform these wonderful instruments and this wonderful music. You will have a BLAST making music on these Pans.
If you want to try them out, stop by the Band Room any time!
