The Steel Pan Collective  


Education Sessions

Presented by

We are adding a couple of great education sessions to this year's festival. All are sponsored by Westerra Credit Union. Performers, families and the public are welcome to come and check it out.

9:30 - 10:15am - Making It In the Music Biz As a Steel Pannist

Join festival headliner Tracy Thornton for this look into what it take to make it as a steel pannist. With over 25 years as being a full time professional musician and 20 years of that as a full time steelpannist, Tracy has great insights on the ebb and flow  (ups and downs downs) of just that and the music business itself. In his clinic he will go through his experiences and give some insights on being a full time steelpannist. Tracy will also touch on the value and rewards of of finding your own voice on music through steelpan. (Cost is $15)

10:15 - 10:30am - BREAK

10:30 - 11:15am - Revving Up the Engine Room

Join Marta Wetzel of Pan Stands for this great session leading up to the afternoon performances. The engine room session will explore some of the different instruments and how to play them within a steel band. We will discuss and demonstrate different techniques and playing options to help get the groove on. Our goal is to have everyone playing so bring an instrument! (Cost is $15)

Sign up for both and pay just $20. 

(Light Breakfast is included)
