Austin Community Steelband is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Membership fees and contributions are tax deductible.



“Few programs offer this unique, engaging opportunity for fostering latent musical talent in kids, especially for those of us that cannot afford to pay for private, quality musical instruction. Steelpan allowed my daughter to express herself musically in a way that no other instrument has done in such a short time. As a parent, I enthusiastically support Austin Community Steelband.”   Mrs. Nancy Tolbert
