“I joined Rhythm and Steel in September 2019 and have really enjoyed playing in the group. I play the tenor steel pan which mainly involves playing the melody. It is really satisfying when we play as a group and suddenly it all comes together.
Charlotte is an excellent teacher and is very patient! I fortunately have a steel pan that I can use at home. We have been having online tutorials during lockdown so we can continue to practice but I can't wait to get back to our weekly rehearsals.
If you have always wanted to play an instrument but have just not had the time or the opportunity I can thoroughly recommend steel pan lessons!”
“My daughter loves her weekly lesson on the steel pans. She's growing in confidence and is enthusiastic about trying the different range of pans and having a go at composing. Charlotte is an excellent teacher with a great enthusiasm and ability”
“Charlotte is a brilliant teacher, adapting her teaching to individual needs and making lessons really enjoyable. Her passion and enthusiasm for playing steel pans is infectious and during lockdown her video tutorials have been a real lifesaver.”
“Can thoroughly recommend this group. Easy to learn the basics with a recognisable tune produced by the end of the first session. Charlotte is very professional and makes the sessions fun. Has been excellent in lockdown in providing us with tutorials to work on. Will be great when we can all meet up again."
“Some friends and I used Rhythm & Steel for a baby shower activity and it was brilliant. Steel pans are so much fun to play and it's surprisingly easy to pick up how to play them.
Charlotte is a great teacher, very patient and easy going, and put together a really fun arrangement of baby-themed songs for us.
I would totally recommend giving Rhythm & Steel a go".
“Discovered Charlotte and this gem of a group totally by accident and was hooked from the start. The 'feel good factor' is beyond description and we can't thank Charlotte enough for her patience and guidance. Can't wait for the time when we're all allowed to play together again."
