U.S. School and University Steel Bands Directory
K-12/Collegiate Steel Band Directory
The purpose of this directory is to facilitate communication between steel band directors and to enable research on steel bands in U.S. schools and universities. I am greatly indebted to various friends and colleagues who reviewed and contributed to this list. If you have corrections or additions to this list please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lastly, I have spent six years compiling this information; please cite this work if you intend to use it in a scholarly fashion.
Please refrain from spamming or soliciting customers from this list. This deteriorates the goodwill of people that have shared their lists with me. Please help keep this resource available by using it responsibly. ALL contact information from this list is publicly available on school/university websites. If you would like your contact information removed from this directory, please e-mail me at email@example.com and I will honor that request.
If you would like me to add a group to the directory, please use the following form:
