This ‘Caribbean Steel Pan – Percussion Buddies – 10 Pack’ can be used with any main instrument but is particularly suitable for use in playing Caribbean steel pan playing with the Jumbie Jam steel pans as the main instruments.

The Percussion Buddies concept is very simple: at the outset the class is divided up into pairs of ‘Buddies’. The pairs take it in turn to play the main instrument of the lesson, whilst the one not playing the main instrument is the ‘Percussion Buddy’ and plays one of the percussion instruments in an accompanying role. The buddies exchange instruments several times during a lesson so that in each lesson both pupils have time playing both the main instrument and the percussion instrument, but the point is that everyone is actively engaged throughout – there’s no ‘waiting for my turn’. The ‘Buddy Pairs’ can be the same for each lesson or pupils can change buddies from lesson to lesson at the discretion of the teacher.

The same principle can be applied to classes of any size and with any number of main instruments. If you have more than one main instrument for every two pupils you’ll need fewer buddy pairs but if main instruments are in really short supply, you might even need some buddy trios or quartets, with two or three ‘Percussion Buddies’ per main instrument.

Product Information

What's included

The teaching guide is written for non-musicians and is supported by numerous online audio clips of the exercises and pieces in the book, as well as video clips showing how the instruments are played.

Please note that for reasons of stock availability we may need to make the occasional substitution of the more minor pack components. If so, we’ll always ensure suitability/equivalence and we’ll always clear any significant changes with you in advance.

Delivery

We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:

UK Locations

Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.

Orders over 5kg – Courier, next working day delivery. Most orders are sent this way.

Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.

Please note:

  1. Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
  2. Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
  3. For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

International Locations

Orders weighing less than 1kg and not too bulky – Post Office Airmail. This would include books and smaller percussion instruments.

Orders weighing more than about 1kg and large orders – international courier or pallet service. We’ll obtain competitive quotes and agree these with you in advance.

Please note that it’s fine to go ahead and place your international order prior to confirming shipping costs, and that there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you. Payment for international orders, including shipping costs, is required before dispatch of the goods.

Returns

Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.

 In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.

Similarly, if an instrument  develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.

But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to:  Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL 

We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.

Core rhythms to the melodies can be practised using hand percussion before moving on to the pitched Steel Pans.

Create a visually impressive scene when performing by having the steel pans flanked by two sets of hand percussion musicians playing supporting rhythms.
