Graded examinations for steel pan are now available.  These examinations have been developed by Dr Jill Scarfe of Pandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya and Terry Noel J.P. of the Steel Band Advisory Service of Great Britain (co-authors of “Play Pan”) in consultation with Robert Thompson, steel pan composer and arranger Trinidad, and David Griffiths, steel pan teacher and arranger, Great Britain.  Grades 1 – 5 have been published and grades 6 – 8 will be available in the summer of 2012.


These examination grades have been endorsed by PRSSV Examination Board and validated by the Open College Network Credit4learning.  PRSSV has been presenting examinations for Indian Music and Dance since 1986 and is concerned with the promotion of World Music genres and dedicated to the preservation and strengthening of these cultures, thus encouraging their development. OCN Credit4learning is licensed by the British government to validate examination courses and to moderate them. These examinations are QCA-accredited at three levels in the National Qualifications Framework: Grades 1–3 at Level 1 (Foundation: equivalent to GCSE grades D–G), Grades 4–5 at Level 2 (Intermediate: GCSE grades A*–C) and Grades 6–8 at Level 3 (Advanced: A-Level).



Copies of the syllabus are available on www.sangeet-examinations.co.uk/steelpan and samples of the examination pieces may be obtained by contacting info@prssv.com
