I was fortunate, tonight, to be able to attend two different classes... Steel Pan and Latin Percussion.. as they ran back to back. Both classes were small in size, allowing for individual instruction, and participants were all of similar skill level to my own (novice or near novice.) I felt welcome and comfortable and am looking forward to next week! (NOT looking forward to recitals!)
