    Play with birdsong Steelband for 2017

     This year our workshops will be led by Mia Gormandy.  Mia is currently Assistant Professor of Steelpan at the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), is a PhD candidate in musicology at Florida State University (FSU), and the co-founder of Pastiche Steel Ensemble and the Virtual Steelband.   Like most of the participants in the Panorama competition, we at birdsong utilize a combination of rote teaching and written notation to teach players the Panorama compositions. As a participant in our International Project, you will  also receive the written music scores, mp3’s, and rehearsal sequences in advance, thus allowing you to come to Trinidad for a short period of time and successfully participate in the Panorama competition.
