Teach and Play Steel Pans Book & DVD by Mike Simpson

Product overview

  • The five pieces in this book represent an exciting and varied selection of steel-pan music, from traditional calypso and soca, to a reggae piece and a Beyoncé song
  • Each piece is broken down into clear and simple steps that show you how to build up the music gradually with your class
  • Combined with the accompanying DVD – which contains over 50 short clips of the author and a group of KS3 students demonstrating all of the instruments and patterns to each piece – teaching and learning world music has never been so easy or enjoyable
  • The five pieces are supplemented with valuable background information about the music and culture, cross-curricular projects, composing ideas, advice on assessment and guidance on teaching whole-class world-music ensembles
  • The material in this book has been designed primarily for use with KS2 and KS3 classes, but the addition of higher-ability parts for each piece means the book can be tailored easily to KS4 as well
  • It is not necessary to own authentic instruments to get the most out of this book as all of the pieces work equally well on classroom alternatives
