STEEL PANS Lessons HALESOWEN – Cradley heath – UK
Pro Music offers steel pans lessons to a variety of individuals from the age of 5 years old up to adults. Learning steel pans is a great introduction for new musicians and those who wish to play with an ensemble. We have 6 groups at Pro Music Tuition who meet and practice learning the steel pans on a weekly basis.
ADULT AND KIDS STEEL PANS LESSONS
Learn The Steel Pans Whatever Your Skill Set. We offer a wide range of songs to choose from, from novice melodies to more difficult items. As you become more skilled, the difficulty in the song you are learning to play will progress to be more challenging. In addition to this, here at Pro Music Tuition, we hold an exhibition 3 times a year in which performers are invited to showcase what they have learnt, whilst learning to play the steel pans.
If you decide to try one of our steel pan lessons then please get in touch with a member of our team who will be able to book this for you. Your first lesson will be free and if preferred, can be taught as an individual lesson, to begin with. Our lessons last for 30 minutes and can be taken as either a private or group tuition.

Music Tuition Testimonials
"My two kids attend weekly lessons with tutors Leah and Josh. Been going for nearly 2 years now and I'm so impressed with how much progress they have both made. They both have excellent communication, are helpful and lessons are very fun and innovative."
"Pro Music is fantastic. Such patience and dedication to helping all the students reach their goals. Building confidence in students and ensuring they are happy. Learning anything new is difficult but these guys make it so much easier. Thank you for all you do.
"A very friendly and welcoming place with excellent teachers. All of my children have learned to piano and guitar here. Thanks guys"
"My son has been attending Pro music for 2 years and I can honestly say I would not go anywhere else. The tutors are fantastic, especially Tom. If you are trying to get your kids off the consoles into another positive interest, this is the place to go, they do a huge range of instruments so will definitely find something they are into. I also know older teens and adults who go to Pro music for various different things including singing lessons and the feedback is excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
"Wow this music school is fantastic, my son has been having drum lessons with Andy, and I have to say he is amazing, so friendly, professional, and very patient, he's more like family because he has made my son feel relaxed and brought him out his shell. All through lockdown, he has continued to give him advice and carry on with his lesson online, he has just taken his grade 3.
"My children have lessons with Tom and Robin for piano and Andy for bass and they all REALLY enjoy their lessons. The teachers have a love for their music, they tailor their lessons for the children, they treat them as intelligent human beings, they also are very helpful and informative to parents. I cannot praise them enough :-)"
"Laura who is the piano teacher at Pro Music Cradley is amazing. My daughter had started taking piano lessons from her since last September and what a success that has been. My D who is 4 year old has learned so much. Laura not only teaches the child to play the piano but the way she teaches it is amazing. Her lessons are engaging and playful enough for a child that they remember and learn and built from there. Would highly recommend her."
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need an instrument?
No, we can provide everything for the lessons and resources for learning.
Is first music lesson is free?
Yes, we extend this so pupils can also try a taster in each instrument.
Do pupils learn to read music?
Yes, music theory is included in all lessons. We teach our pupils, note values, how to read music, and scales and how to approach sight-reading. This is important in knowing how to practice effectively. Tutors will also demonstrate what websites to use to brush up and improve on your music theory reading. With electric guitar, it would be TAB; with classical guitar it would be treble clef reading. We have over 900 pupils per week attend our premises. We start adults from novices or can take over from other existing teachers/music schools. We can start gradings or leisure play; Pro Music is very flexible with the times. We have many slots to suit adults who work shiftwork/home or even 9-to-5.
What are the benefits of music lessons for kids?
Builds language skills.
Many studies have shown that children who learn to play an instrument, become accustomed to various sounds that they would not have acknowledged before. This practice teaches their ears the subtle sounds of language.
It makes them academically stronger.
Links have been found between music lessons and nearly every measure of academic achievement: SAT scores, reading comprehension, and math skills. Music also improves their powers of recall for powerful learning in all subjects.
Numerous studies have proven that children’s IQs improve because of even a few weeks of music lessons. Brain scan technology indicates that brain activity improves following musical training, and some parts of the brain show greater plasticity.
It teaches discipline.
Music lessons require hours of concentration and patience. Children must persist even when things aren’t going well…an invaluable skill for all areas of life.
It supports muscle development and motor skills.
Children must use their entire bodies to maintain the rhythm when they play. They also must coordinate various movements with their hands at the same time. In doing so, they develop strength and coordination.
It improves social skills.
If children play in a group, they have to learn to work together to achieve a shared goal, exercising tolerance, patience, and encouragement towards their peers.
It makes kids feel good about themselves.
There’s nothing quite like the sense of pride that comes from working on a new skill, especially when the result is beautiful music.
It improves cultural awareness.
By learning music from various parts of the globe, students come to understand these cultures.
It brings happiness & joy.
And the most important reason of all. When children can play music, it makes them happy and everyone else too.
Can I learn to play an instrument within a band setting?
Yes, we offer band nights for children and adults - please email Pro Music for the next dates.
Can parents stay with their children?
Parents are very welcome to stay and observe. All tutors are DBS checked and we also safeguard materials on site for parents to read.
What happens if myself or my children can’t attend a lesson?
No problem, just let Pro Music know by email or phone at 0121 559 3355 and we will reschedule the session. Please give Pro Music 24hrs notice so we juggle the timetable.
Will it help if I already play another instrument?
Yes, it will definitely help. A second instrument is always welcomed here at Pro Music some peoples even take 2 to 3 instruments per week. We can also discount when pupils want to take another instrument. Please give Pro Music a call we can give you advice on which to pick.
For example, playing the piano and then learning to play the steel pans would be an easy transition. Same with electric guitar to bass guitar.
Do you have parking?
We have a free car park for each site.
Is there disabled access at your sites?
We have ground floors in all music schools, wheelchair friendly.

Is practising for 1 hour a day enough?
Amateur Adult: 1-2 hours daily. Many adult amateurs are extremely busy individuals who struggle to find even 15 minutes a day to practise! But in order to advance at a satisfying pace and get the most out of their piano study, an adult amateur student will ideally be able to dedicate at least an hour a day to practising.
Children: Again, there will be a direct correlation between time spent practising and advancement. Children and younger adults have the advantage of being able to learn faster, but we recommend 15 minutes a day of practice, or 30 to 45 if sitting exams.
Am I too old to learn how to play an instrument?
Learning a new skill as an adult is a great way to keep the mind active and young, studies have shown that it can even prevent cognitive decline as we age. Neuroplasticity allows your brain to create new pathways and neurons at any age. So, while it's true that children and young adults will pick up new skills faster, adults of any age can enjoy the multiple benefits of learning an instrument.
