Steelpan Workshop for students

The students of Brian Elementary Public School divided into 4 groups to learn about the history and development of the Steelpan. Many had seen the instruments before but hadn't the opportunity to get up close and learn about its evolution.  I had the opportunity to showcase an original "Spider Web Pan" whose design was first presented by steelpan pioneer Anthony Williams in 1953. This steelpan is no longer created for performance.
