Steel Magic Northwest exists to teach music, teamwork, leadership, and other important life skills, and to build community in the context of the modern steel orchestra.

Our specific goals are to...
  1. provide a safe, family-structured environment where kids can learn not only music, but also teamwork, the value and rewards of dedication, and leadership skills as they move up in the ranked bands.
  2. Provide a strong, lasting support community for the particpants.
  3. provide a rich environment for adult learning in social steel bands, where people of all ages and from diverse backgrounds can bond through music.
  4. educate and entertain the general public with the music we make.
  5. train music educators in the special challenges and techniques of steel band leadership, so that all steel bands in the region are improved and the art form is appreciated at a higher level.
