These steel pan examination grades have been developed by Dr Jill Scarfe, David Griffiths, steel pan teacher and arranger (UK) and Terry Noel J.P. (the Steel Band Advisory Service) in consultation with Robert Thompson, steel pan composer and arranger (Trinidad) and on behalf of the Pandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya and validated by the Open College Network Credit4learning. OCN Credit4learning is licensed by the British government to validate examination courses and to moderate them. These grades equate to the National Framework of Qualifications (UK) where Grade 3 is Level One, grade 5 is Level Two (GCSE level) and grade 8 is Level Three, (A level).
This syllabus has been written for the Tenor Pan. The same content will be available for the Double Second pan in the very near future. If there is demand, this work will be extended to cover other instruments of the Pan family.
