Our Classes

We currently offer a huge variety of classes for adults and youth, age 6-17. Some of the classes we offer include: 

Intro Session

The “Crash Course” is like a steel drum intro season. It’s a fun, hands-on session that will give you a feel for what it’s like playing in a steel drum band. In just 1 hour you’ll get to try several different steel drums and play along side other RMSB members. You’ll leave knowing 1 or 2 songs and have a steel drum experience to remember. These are perfect if you:
  • Just want to TRY steel drum
  • are looking for a fun weekend event, or
  • don’t want a weekly commitment Join our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss it.
No commitment, just a fun night of steel drums. If you love playing steel drums as much as I do, you start coming to our weekly rehearsals. Maybe even join one of our exciting performing ensembles!
Price: $20 per person per session Group discounts may be available for 5+ Class Options: Tuesdays at 2pm Tuesdays at 5pm

Home School Classes

As a home school father with 5 kids, I understand what kind of enrichment you are looking for. Our classes are designed to meet the needs of home schooling families. We often have multiple classes at the same time so there’s a class for everyone.

Hand Pans

You’ve seen the viral videos online. Now you can finally try a hand pan for yourself! I’m teaching private lessons on hand pans. You can use one of my hand pans during your lesson. Then, I’ll give you materials and patterns to practice before your next lesson.

The Hand Pan, also called Hang Drum, Space Pan, or Halo, ( as well as handpan or spaceman) is becoming a very popular instrument. Many builders have wait times of several months or even years. It’s unique sound and relative ease of play makes it a great instrument to make music by yourself or with others.

I have just a couple hours open right now for just a select number of hang drum students.

Price: $30 per lesson

Class Options:
Monday and Wednesday nights
