We are a Non-profit professional steelpan school. Classes, demonstrations, and workshops are conducted by Steelband Director, Cecil Francis, originally from Trinidad, with 30 years extensive experience teaching and performing professionally. Our performances range from soloists, duet and quartet ensembles, to full steelbands, playing all musical genres, from calypso and popular, to jazz and classical.
