Jumble Jam Steel Pans

We have been lucky enough to have someone in to teach us how to drum using steel pans. We have been learning simple tunes such as ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ and ‘Beginner Bosa’ as we start to practice our understanding of G Scale. We then stated to learn about single stroke technique and rolling on one note.

This helped us with our musical literacy, pitch and rhythm; and we were able to progress to more complex songs like ‘Lazy Day Reggae’ and ‘Mr Big Noise’. We have also found out a bit about the history of steel pans and the music that comes from the Caribbean islands.
