I Have been playing pan for a very long and I can't remember anyone telling me or asking me why am I beating the pan,however I know that I have a little hearing problem because people sometimes ask why am I speaking so loud so I have to try and control it. that makes me believe that being in the pan yard (may)have cause it and I do believe that (maybe) some players need to beat the pan because they have the same problem. However I believe the drillers and arrangers should hold themselves responsible for players beating the pans. maybe someone can explain this to me when the band is practicing the intro they are told that the very first note should be powerful. could that be possible in any other way.
THIS IS WHY I am now going to be the BIGGEST ADVOCATE OF SYNTHESIZED PAN MUSIC where you can CONTROL THE TIMBRE AND TONALITY of THE NOTES.
Please listen to playing pan https://youtu.be/mzaQGMwC7kw
