Note from Jordan: This book is great for anyone who is learning the steel drum, taking lessons, wants some different material, or craves a new challenge on their instrument(s). I have been using some of the solos in this book with my students to meet the needs of those who want an additional challenge outside of our full band material. The QR code on each solo with track makes it easy for students to access the track even when I'm not around. Recently, I have been using this as a way to brush up on my full band chops to get ready for a new school year. I think this will become a great tool for any steel band director. Use it to feature student soloists on a concert, beef up your concerts with some more diverse genres represented, use it in lessons, or however else you decide. I hope you enjoy these solos and use them well!
