AYSB provides an opportunity for local 7th and 8th grade musicians to learn how to play the steel drums, and perform at the Desert Vista Band Pops Concert in May.
No previous percussion or steel band experience required!
We have two steel bands at Desert Vista, and a good portion of them are wind players who have never played percussion before. If you have experience reading music, you’ll be fine!
AYSB has weekly practice sessions in April and May, and concludes with a concert performance at Desert Vista in May.
It is extremely important that all members of the AYSB are at ALL rehearsals and the concert.
Please make sure you can get a Hawaiian shirt by the concert date!
AYSB is limited to the number of steel pans that we have – currently 24.
