Steel drum bands are becoming increasingly more common in school and community music programs.

From elementary/beginning band to high school, college, community, and professional groups, the pieces you are looking for are here, expertly written by educators who have vast experience working with steel drum bands at all levels.

Bahia Street Beat is an original work for steel band with extra world music flavor. It acquaints students with world music styles accompanied by groovaliscious rhythms, but moreover, allows for flexibility in ages of the performers. This work is accessible enough for the beginning steel band player, but facilitates open improvisations that accommodate high school and college students as well as professionals.
