Established in 1999, the Steel Monarchs Steel Drum band provides a creative outlet for students at Monarch School. Playing in the band allows our students to express their creativity and is also a fun way to learn the discipline of working as part of a group. All students are encouraged to play and participate in weekly lessons provided by the Recreational Music Center. In the past, the band performed at community events where they were able to show off their talent and the progress they’d made during practice. Currently, we are in the process of recalibrating our performance team to include a wide range of student talents and will be taking a hiatus from performances. The Steel Drum program will continue during this hiatus and will always be an important aspect of our student enrichment model.
