Private Steel Drums Teacher

I am a professional steel pan player born in the islands of Trinidad & Tobago where the steel-pan was invented i have my own steel -pan entertainment company and has been playing for over 45 years i started at the age of eight.

I have thought countless of young and old people how to play the steel drum/steel pan my latest development for teaching is an app called steel pan tutor. my student will receive a free version of this app in their first class. i will not only teach you how to play but how to perform and move people with your performances .. I teach all steel drums from Tenor to Bass.

I have performed in places like Carnegie Hall .The Apollo. Ny London, Paris and various houses of Worship. If you are looking for experience Sterling is here! Thanks in advance and all the best with your choice.

I have been taking lessons with Sterling and it has been a great learning experience as well as a great learning atmosphere. I was skeptical at first trying to learn online, but after having some classes with him, my concerns have been erased and now I am actually learning to play the steel pan. Great teacher, patient and kind.

Sterling is great!! I am so glad I found this site as there is no one in my small Canadian city that plays steel drums or provides lessons. I love playing the steel drums!
Rueben
I feel honored to take lessons from someone who actually played for many years with one of the top steelbands in Trinidad, WITCO Desperadoes. Since I was a beginner, Sterling started with the fundamentals such as identifying the notes on the tenor pan, proper posture, and "sticking" techniques. I progressed to learning and practicing scales, to identifying the Key Signature of a song. He is a patient, gifted musician, who loves sharing his passion for this beautiful instrument.

Students should expect to be challenged. First we start by identifying and labeling all the notes and their names. After learning the notes and how to strike the instrument will move on to learning scales and building chords from those scales. Once we can play some scales and chords we will begin learning your favorite music.

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high sc
