|Notes / History||Members of a junior steel band performing at Merton Abbey Mills.
For many generations of schoolchildren, music lessons were limited to playing the recorder, or triangle. Today, youngsters have the opportunity to play a greater variety of instruments from different cultures. Brought from the Caribbean, steel band music has proven extremely popular due to its versatility, strong rhythms and sense of fun.
