Play the Steel Drums Online!

The steel drums are a much loved part of our school.  We currently have two after school steel band clubs.  In the club, the children learn how to play the drums and play tunes together.  They often practise during their playtimes and lunchtimes.  We have found some digital steel drums that you can play on the Internet.   Click on to find the links and have a go…These online drums allow you get a feel for the layout of the different drums and how it sounds.
They don’t quite feel the same as playing the real thing.  We play with two sticks and the mouse only acts as one.  Two sticks allow you to do a roll.  They are still lots of fun and our steel band players can practise their songs at home using these!  We hope you enjoy playing these digital drums.  Maybe they will inspire you to come and have a go on the real thing and perhaps even join one of our bands!

    Our school has a steel drum band too, and it has about 5o people. we have all different kinds of pans along with student piano players, gutair, etc. We even get to go to Orgeon Ridge to play at a festival! We sound so good and we have more pans than you guys do.

    Thank you for writing a comment for us Abby. Wow 50 members – that sounds like a big band! We have 13 drums and a drum kit in all so are much smaller. Do you have a website where we can hear your band play? We would like to listen to you.
