The Steeldrum Ensemble

The Steeldrum Ensemble is an educational project that offers students the opportunity to develop academic achievement across the curriculum.  Participation in the ensemble accelerates learning through the improvement of literacy, memory, concentration and coordination. Eyesight and hearing acuity are enhanced in addition to cognitive skills and motor skills. The rates of development of physical, mental, emotional and social abilities are also escalated.

A research project is one of the requirements for membership in the ensemble. Through this project, the students engage in extensive reading and writing. Researching information about the instrument, its history and culture, augments their literacy skills with the implementation of technology and conventional methods – Students analyze and synthesize acquired knowledge about the Steeldrum – the invention, the inventors, the development, and the social and cultural usage. In addition the students employ critical thinking skills to discuss the effect of their experiences in the ensemble on their learning. Members of the ensemble are encouraged to contribute suggestions for the improvement of the ensemble.
