Working with the PanGanG

Hallo, dear friends :-)
Pan in Germany is growing! After leaving pan-kultur I teach music at Calypsonic e.V., Institute for SteelPan and Calypso, Dortmund and this is what we achieved since 1999, when we started. It was only possible with the help of all those who created Calypso and Pan. Special thanks to Glenda Gamory, Dessy (PanRadio), WhenSteelTalks, Basement Records and of cause to all of you...!

2015: All this is history. In 2013 my steel orchestra decided to go on without me, so I had to start all over again. But nevertheless - considering that I started with 4 to 6 years old kids in 1999 I did all I could do as a music teacher to take my students to this level: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=323015051194582

Now I returned to the beginning once again helping kids to enter the world of music with steel pans:

Yeah WerNer I concur,  as pan itself derive or was discovered out of a need for spiritual enlightenment, which also happens to be a healing medium as well, so I know exactly what U R saying my Good Man...

How true Mr WerNer, these so call arrangers DO NOT UNDERSTAND or DO NOT KNOW THAT MUSIC is a language, instruments in conversation with each other, not disagreement/agument or a wrestling match, their arrangement's is TOTAL DISSONANCE/NOISE, WITH AN AROBIC EXERCISE...

Hello Werner,

I listened to the performance of my tune "Pan Hip" by your group and thought they did a very good job. I'm glad they won first prize in the jazz competition. I hope you continue to have great success with your group.
