High Tenor

The high tenor (also known as a soprano pan) is the highest pitched of the steel drums (steel pans) with a pitch range of D4 to F#6, that is, up to two octaves and a major third from D above middle C (C4). Its predecessor actually contained fewer notes which were within the tenor range. However, the name “Tenor” was kept despite the higher range of its descendant, the soprano pan. The notes of this pan is arranged in the cycle of 4ths, going clockwise.


The high tenor pan is a lead instrument and normally carries the melody. However, these steel drums can easily play a harmonic role depending on the desire of the music arranger.The high tenor is commonly used by pan soloists.

Low Tenor

The Low Tenor, which has a pitch range from C4 to E6 has notes that are arranged in the same order as the high tenor. The function of this steel pan is the same as that of the high tenor and it is also used by pan soloists.

Fine Farewell Steelband Music

August 13th, 2020|Comments Off on Fine Farewell Steelband Music

Fine Farewell Steelband Music Fine Farewell Steelband Music Fine Farewell Steel Band Music Choosing funeral songs is often seen as an important part of personalising a funeral service for your loved one. It is a chance for you to pay tribute to their personality, their hobbies, or simply say farewell with one of their favourite songs. When to Have a Funeral Some aspects of timing are beyond the control of the funeral director. They may not want to confirm a date for the funeral until they are certain that registration is done and the additional forms needed for a cremation are complete or the coroner has given permission for the funeral to take place. You do not have to accept the first date and time that the funeral director offers. Sometimes a date coincides with other important dates, such as a family birthday which you would rather avoid. It is also important to check the funeral director has made sure the person you want to conduct the funeral is available before finalising the date and time. Not everyone is able to rearrange work and other commitments at very short notice especially if international travel is involved and it may be necessary for visas to be obtained. Cemetery and crematorium appointments in the middle of the day tend to get booked up first. If everyone attending is local, you could have the funeral earlier or later in the day. Institute of Civil Funerals Civil funeral celebrants belong to the Institute of Civil Funerals and a list of them and their contact details can be found on the institute's website.

This places me in very unique position of truly understanding the balance between grieving and celebration of life by means of music! Music  From the traditional Caribbean songs such as Yellow Bird, Island in the Sun to more uplifting and up tempo songs such as Bob Marley Reggae selection to well known pop songs. trust in Steelasophical to create and maintain just the right atmosphere. lets talk about your funeral day music Picture taken at St Anselms Church, The Green Southall - the morning of my mothers funeral As an experienced musician, Gary travels throughout the UK in order to play at Funerals and other events. Gary is the founder of Steelasophical, a leading provider of Caribbean musical services based in the UK By its very nature, a funeral is a very emotive event, and the most appropriate time for family and loved ones to say a final farewell to the deceased person. No two funerals are the same, and sometimes he receives requests for tunes that are not usually associated with funerals or the loss of a loved one, but none the less are important to the family. Gary also knows that everything has to be right first time, and from the moment of the initial enquiry, he will listen and understand individual requirements and give immediate and initial advice without obligation Should you appoint him, he will then work with the undertaker and/or the family advising on appropriate protocols and actions, and where appropriate advising [...]

When hiring musicians explaining value

July 30th, 2020|0 Comments

When hiring musicians explaining value When hiring musicians explaining value  Source: https://www.theknot.com How would you describe your style? What You Want to Know: If their style will work with the vibe you're going for. If you want an elegant cocktail party with lots of casual conversation, a band that describes itself as “really rockin' and rollin' with a whole lotta edge" is a music mismatch. Can we come take a quick peek at a wedding you're working? What You Want to Know: What you should expect on game day. Seeing them perform live will give you the best idea about what your wedding entertainment would actually sound and feel like. Do you know our reception space and its acoustic, power and amplification requirements? If not, will you check it out beforehand? What You Want to Know: Your musicians may need an extension cord or backup generator. If they don't want to check out your venue, cross them off your short list. Can you play the songs that are important to us, such as a (traditional Jewish) hora tune or a favorite pop hit? What You Want to Know: The band or DJ should be able to play, learn or download any tune you'd like. If a band says "yes," but they'll need to learn and/or arrange it, ask them if they'll charge for that. How many musicians are in the band, and are available? How many vocalists? Are there different options as far as how many musicians/instruments we can hire? When hiring musicians explaining value What You Want to Know: If you're interviewing a DJ, you want to know if she works with a partner, and if it's a band, who exactly would be there on the day. Note: Hiring only a portion of an amazing band is a smart way to stick to a strict budget. Would we need to rent any instruments (a piano, for example) or equipment (extra speakers or a stage)?

The Double Tenor, which was invented by Bertie Marshall, uses 2 drums and has a pitch range from F3 to B5 or up to two octaves and an augmented 4th from F below middle C. These steel pans have a distinctively pleasant sound, which makes them very appealing to pan soloists. The double tenor can be used to carry the melody, a harmonic voice, for counter melodies or for chords.In the latest standardised version of the double tenor steel drums,the Eb note is on the left hand pan and the F# is on the right hand pan. In an earlier version of this pan, the Eb is on the right hand pan and there was no F#3. So you went from F3 to F#4 to G3 and up, which broke the continuity of the range. There is even a double tenor which has the lowest F# (F#3) on the left and the other F#’s on the right, with the Eb also on the right. So, if you decide to play this pan you must be mindful of its variations. The arrangement of the notes on the double tenor is not symmetrical, which makes it one of the more difficult instruments to master.

The Double Second Pan

This steel pan was invented by Sonny Roach and uses two drums, each of which carries the notes of a whole-tone scale, making it a very symmetrical steel pan. Its notes range from F# below middle C (F#3) up to C#6, which is two octaves above middle C. Because of the symmetry of this pan, the successive notes of the Chromatic Scale alternate between the left and right hand pans. For example, F# is on the left, G is on the right, G# is on the left, and so on…

Fine Farewell Steelband Music

Fine Farewell Steelband Music Fine Farewell Steelband Music Fine Farewell Steel Band Music Choosing funeral songs is often seen as an important part of personalising a funeral service for your loved one. It is a chance for you to pay tribute to their personality, their hobbies, or simply say farewell with one of their favourite songs. When to Have a Funeral Some aspects of timing are beyond the control of the funeral director. They may not want to confirm a date for the funeral until they are certain that registration is done and the additional forms needed for a cremation are complete or the coroner has given permission for the funeral to take place. You do not have to accept the first date and time that the funeral director offers. Sometimes a date coincides with other important dates, such as a family birthday which you would rather avoid. It is also important to check the funeral director has made sure the person you want to conduct the funeral is available before finalising the date and time. Not everyone is able to rearrange work and other commitments at very short notice especially if international travel is involved and it may be necessary for visas to be obtained. Cemetery and crematorium appointments in the middle of the day tend to get booked up first. If everyone attending is local, you could have the funeral earlier or later in the day. Institute of Civil Funerals Civil funeral celebrants belong to the Institute of Civil Funerals and a list of them and their contact details can be found on the institute's website.

When hiring musicians explaining value

When hiring musicians explaining value When hiring musicians explaining value  Source: https://www.theknot.com How would you describe your style? What You Want to Know: If their style will work with the vibe you're going for. If you want an elegant cocktail party with lots of casual conversation, a band that describes itself as “really rockin' and rollin' with a whole lotta edge" is a music mismatch. Can we come take a quick peek at a wedding you're working? What You Want to Know: What you should expect on game day. Seeing them perform live will give you the best idea about what your wedding entertainment would actually sound and feel like. Do you know our reception space and its acoustic, power and amplification requirements? If not, will you check it out beforehand? What You Want to Know: Your musicians may need an extension cord or backup generator. If they don't want to check out your venue, cross them off your short list. Can you play the songs that are important to us, such as a (traditional Jewish) hora tune or a favorite pop hit? What You Want to Know: The band or DJ should be able to play, learn or download any tune you'd like. If a band says "yes," but they'll need to learn and/or arrange it, ask them if they'll charge for that. How many musicians are in the band, and are available? How many vocalists? Are there different options as far as how many musicians/instruments we can hire? When hiring musicians explaining value What You Want to Know: If you're interviewing a DJ, you want to know if she works with a partner, and if it's a band, who exactly would be there on the day. Note: Hiring only a portion of an amazing band is a smart way to stick to a strict budget. Would we need to rent any instruments (a piano, for example) or equipment (extra speakers or a stage)?

The Cello Pan

The Cello Pan uses 3 pans, each of which contains the four notes of a diminished seventh chord. One pan therefore contains the notes C, Eb, Gb and A; another pan contains C#, E, G and Bb; the third pan contains B, D, F and Ab. The range of this pan goes from C3, one octave below middle C to B4 above middle C.

The longer skirt and the minor-third relationship between the neighbouring notes of each pan gives the cello pans a deep mysterious tonal quality. These steel drums perfect for counter melodies and low harmony. The symmetry of these steel drums allows the chromatic scale to be played in a clockwise pattern between the three pans. Note that the placement of the pans and even the arrangement of the notes within the pans can vary according to the style of the cello pan
