Music Making and Learning for People Over 50

Steel Pan Bands

Music Education Centre

We have seven Steel Pan Bands within the Silver Programme and each group plays its own set of popular repertoire. You can progress from the Silver beginners group or from another steel pan group. Each group learns a different repertoire so you may need to catch up with old repertoire as well as learning new tunes.

Please contact the Silver Programme to find out more about which group would be best for you.

Steel Magnolia (Steel Pans) Thursday, 12noon – 1.30pm
