Hi Jennifer,

I am definitely not an expert on Pan groups but here is an excellent NAfME publication you might want to check out: The Steel Band Game Plan: Strategies for Starting, Building, and Maintaining Your Pan Program Published by MENC: The National Association for Music Education in Partnership with Rowman & Littlefield Education – Chris Tanner Presents a Guide for Successful Implementation and Development of a Steel Band Program.

Also, go to the web site of our state’s premiere HS Steel Drum Band, Mayfield (WI) HS. From there you can contact their director. Anything he can’t answer he will send you to another expert who can.

I hope this helps!
