Young pan arranger Karlin Alexander continues to shine and do well in his musical career.
This year Karlin worked with the former Diego Martin Government Secondary School- ‘Diego Central ‘ and their tune of choice ‘Surrender’
Though beset with organizational difficulties surrounding the preparation for presenting on stage before the judges the young pannists of Diego Martin faced the judges and their competitors with the composure of tried and veteran pannists.
To us, all our young pannists/participants are winners.They have defeated the stigma of young,restless and irresponsible often tagged to them by many in our society including members of faith-based organizations.
The author of this article have ofttimes recommended training in percussive instruments especially pan and drums to help create an environment of discipline for the young people involved.
The author along with others have had documented results for the positive influence of the effect of training and playing both the drum and steel pan.
Well done Karlin! Well done students and pannists of Diego Central! Prepare for more success.
