THE STEEL WORKSHOP

Kia Ora!

Our Love for Music Drives Us​

Learn to play one of the coolest and most incredible sounding instruments on the planet - The Steelpan.  The Steel Workshop will teach you how to play rhythm and melody on these fascinating instruments creating a fun experience at the same time. 


Like any other instrument, it takes years to become a professional steelpan musician.  The advantage is that the steelpan is a perfect instrument, as the basic skills are easy to learn, and playing it does not require any previous musical experience.  It is possible for an individual or group with any level of musical experience to accomplish a simple melody within a short period of time. 


Although here in New Zealand there are not many like us who do what we do, we make up for it with our unwavering passion for this incredible instrument, its musical & cultural history, and contagious sound as a whole.  


We believe that patience is the key.  Our approach is relaxed, fun, and encouraging.

What We Do

The Steel Workshop will conduct a fun musical workshop, learning about the different voices of the steelpan orchestra including the Engine Room (percussion) and the origins of this fascinating instrument.
