A Little More About Me!

I Am a native of Trinidad & Tobago. My introduction to steelpan came at age 14 with the Point Fortin New Creation Youth Steel Orchestra. Since that time, I have performed with various steel orchestras in Trinidad and the U.S. to the likes of Point Fortin Sun Valley, Dunlop Tornadoes, Moods Pan Groove and Steel Sensation to name a few. I was musical director for the Sesame Flyers Youth Steel Orchestra, from 1999-2003 and developed a love for teaching the instrument to the community. I arranged different genres of music to entertain the public for the orchestra over the next few years and my arrangements have also been played by the orchestra at various competitions, including winning pieces in Brooklyn, NY and Baltimore, Maryland. I perform regularly as a soloist and a band member throughout the region and recorded two solo albums which have received rave reviews from both the general public and steel band community at large. Since moving to Atlanta I continue to expand and share this musical gift through teaching and performing

Giving Back

NuGen Steelpan Academy was established in January 2016. Lessons focus on teaching the art of playing steel pan while sharing its impact on the rich culture of Trinidad & Tobago and the rest of the Caribbean.

Why is the Academy so important to you?

In the Spring of 1992, I made a decision that has had a tremendous impact on the trajectory of my life. That was, to walk into the New Creation Youth Steel Orchestra band room and learn to play the steel pan. 24 years later it’s time to give back. Steelpan and music have been a huge source of pride for my family and my community. Steel pan connects us to people in amazing ways, fosters cooperation, collaboration and forms bonds that can last a lifetime. My purpose with NuGen Steelpan Academy is to help students learn to play this amazing instrument and gain a better appreciation for the people of Trinidad & Tobago and Caribbean culture. And by doing so, it builds confidence, community and connects people from different walks of life together. Because with music, we realize how much more we have in common with each other than not. Playing the steelpan is awesome!
