Launched in October of 2017, The Port Townsend Steel Bands are community-based, beginning and intermediate Caribbean Steel Bands. Our mission is to learn Caribbean rhythms and songs in a fun, relaxed environment while making new friends and sharing the enchanting sounds of the steel pans with our community.

Join the Fun!

Winter 2019 Classes begin January 21

Classes are scheduled in a series of 8 weeks, meeting once per week for 90 minutes, on Monday afternoon/evening. This allows us enough time together as a group to prepare for a performance at the end of the class series.


Next INTRO WORKSHOP: Monday, January 14

Beginners Welcome!

The intro workshop is a great opportunity to try several different steel pans.

During this fun, hands-on workshop, you will have the opportunity to play steelpans as we discuss technique, Caribbean styles, common Caribbean rhythms, some basic music theory and even start learning a song. Limited space available, RSVP required.
