Om boka

This work examines the spread of the steelpan art form within U.S. music education, specifically in schools and universities. This is set within the context of a large Caribbean diaspora, which brought the music and culture to the U.S. This is followed by an in-depth examination into the implications for steel bands and music education going forward. This research includes 'family trees' that illustrate the impact of various programs on the spread of the art form and includes information on one of the earliest U.S. school steel band programs in the concluding case study chapter. The work includes numerous resources for steel band directors and music educators interested in this topic.
