Arrangements & Compositions

As a percussionist and pannist, Mike realizes the challenge of having a limited repertoire available. Pan players in particular are in need of new compositions, in part because the instrument is so young. He always works to add to the repertoire by commissioning new works for steelpan solo or ensemble as well as arranging existing compositions and songs for the steelband or percussion duos.  He has commissioned several composers, projects are being completed regularly.  If you are interested in any information regarding his completed commissions or arrangements, contact Mike by phone or email.
