Intro Workshops for Beginners:
Let the fun begin! No previous music experience required. During this hands-on workshop, we will explore various types of steelpans & pan techniques, Caribbean styles & rhythms, some basic theory and even start learning a song! The workshop is designed for new or prospective members, or anyone who'd just like to try out a steelpan.
Join the Bands:
After the Intro Workshop, you will be able to become a member of one of the PT Steel Bands! For the classes, we meet weekly for about 8 weeks, learning songs in preparation for performing our music in the community. (Intro Workshop required to join bands. Possible exceptions.)
More about PT Steel Bands:
Launched in October of 2017, The Port Townsend Steel Bands are community-based, beginning and intermediate Caribbean Steel Bands. Our mission is to learn Caribbean rhythms and songs in a fun, relaxed environment while making new friends and sharing the enchanting sounds of the steelpans with our community.
