Steel pan was born in Repubric of Trinidad and Tobago, in Caribbean Sea. Still now, this country is most exiting place of the pan. In Carnival time, many steel bands, each band has 50-100 players, play to win the competitions.

I, Susumu Muraji, went to Trinidad Island to play with Trinidadian band. And get real Trinidadian Groove. I went there 7 times and stayed over 200 days.

I will teach you Calypso, Soca, Pops and other latin tunes directly. You don't have to have knowledge about music. We don't have less poeple who have experience to play pans, So I try to make students enjoy the music and play pan.

I play some phrase first, then you play same one. When you got the melody, I play next. This is my way to teach how to play pan, that is Trinidadian teach me. No use music sheets, You don't have to have knowledge of Music Theory.
After half year, you will be surprised with finding that you've gotten some Music Theories, Harmonics, Rhythms and Scales, naturally. Ofcause, you will get technique to play pan.

It counted 20years, from I started teaching pans. I want give you back somthing that I have gotten from the students, like " easy way to remember the melodies", "easy way to understand how notes go on in the pan", and much more.

If you are interested in my pan school, even little bit. Call me, now.
