About This Class

This is a fun course that will enable you to play a very laid-back, beachy, fun, tropical song on a Steel Drum (or even a Steel Drum app) for your friends and family. 

You will learn the notes to play at a VERY SLOW speed, gaining confidence, until you can play the song at full speed. 

Once you learn the basic notes that comprise the song, you will be playing along with the instructor. Once you're comfortable with that, YOU will take the lead!

The course is meant for beginners with no musical knowledge.
