MoE to hire 120 music instructors for Pan in All Schools project

I have always seen the STEEL PAN as a musical instrument, a great MOTIVATOR, EDUCATOR, STIMULATOR and, most of all, LOVE of the STEEL PAN. One must instinctively possess a natural desire and love for the PAN which challenges us to challenge ourselves and which provides greater success for a livelihood in the many fields of pan music. This project is MAJOR which will involve every aspect of society's upcoming school generations, and where today's Millennials can play a role as seasoned steel pan players, not forgetting our Baby-Boomers who should be considered for their life's experiences, while growing up with the growing pains and the progress of the steel band movement. Having knowledge of music theory and musicology can certainly provide PAN scholars in the art form of teaching, playing and enjoying the steel pan instrument to its most highest levels.
