Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring

A Steel Band workshop visited!

A Steel Band workshop visited school and showed us how to make fantastic music with the Steelpans! We all got a turn and then they played some brilliant music for us to dance to.

We even started a Conga line in the hall!


What is a Steelpan Band?

Steelpans (also known as steel drums or pans, and sometimes, collectively with other musicians, as a steel band or orchestra) is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago. Steel pan musicians are called pannists.

The steelpan or drum  is struck using a pair of straight sticks tipped with rubber; Some musicians use four pansticks, holding two in each hand.

The pan is the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago
