I have been teaching an adult steel pan class at Davidson for some time now, probably around 15 years or so. I have a core group of 14 students who attend most sessions and some enthusiastic new comers.

I will be moving from the area at the end of March. I am looking for a teacher to take over the class and wondered if someone you know might be interested. The class does not really read music as a group but they learn at about the same pace (and about the same level of music) as a middle school class even though they meet only once a week for 2 hours, 6:30-8:30 on Tuesdays (although this could be changed.)

The class is run through the San Rafael Adult/Community Ed program. Pay is $30 and hour ($60 a night.) Time sheets can be put in monthly or at the end of class. If the session is 12 weeks, the cost to the studentsis $120. If it is 14 weeks, the cost is $140. (Tentimes the number of weeks.)

I tried to keep their calendar to a school calendar, same vacAtions, etc. The final class is a recital, in the room, for friends and family.They are a fun group of people, friends outside of class as well. Their primary concerns with another teacher is that the person know their stuff and be fun and be able to teach.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would like to take on, let me know. If you are not interested and know of someone you think may be, please forward this info to them and their contact information to me.

Get back to me soon please. My adult class is waiting with anticipation!
