Toussaint specialises in teaching steel pan to Secondary School age children. You can start with an introductory workshop and carry on learning until the group is ready for public performances. Toussaint will take a group to whatever level is required. Previously he has taken bands from knowing nothing about the art of pan and worked with them to international performance levels. You can be assured that Toussaint will demand a lot out of his students but in return they will learn very quickly the many skills needed to play pan.

The students will work primarily as a group and Toussaint works hard to develop team spirit, providing encouragement, motivation and a wealth of knowledge to draw upon. Toussaint will build close working relationships with the students and the staff.
