The Caribbean Steel Pan Book, written by educator and professional percussionist Andy Gleadhill, shows generalist teachers how to teach Steel Pans in a class setting.

Above you can play the audio tracks that accompany Andy Gleadhill’s Caribbean Steel Pan Book and you can also download them. The recordings are of professionally produced performances of all the Caribbean Steel Pan tunes in the book. We recommend that you listen to the tunes either through headphones or good quality speakers as laptop and small loudspeakers will struggle to reproduce the lower frequencies and may sound rather “tinny”.

Although all of the tunes and exercises in the book can be played on any Steel Pan instrument, Andy focuses 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 are available online that further support teacher and pupils by giving practical demonstrations of the techniques and pieces covered in the Guide. Please visit our Steel Pans Online Support Playlist.
