Playing pan is a very exciting experience for me as it shows the community my talent.
It’s a great feeling to know that people are clapping for you and your band mates, this makes me motivated to play pan. It’s brilliant to be part of pantonic as it is the legacy of my great grandfather. I even enjoy packing and unpacking pans because of the fact that it makes me strong.
The band gives me a chance to socialise with people other than my friends. It has let me visit places that I have never visited and events I would have never even thought of performing in i.e. Olympic Torch Event. Pantonic has even introduced me to different types of songs and genres. This is useful to me as it helps with my music lessons in school.
Pantonic is perfect, however I would like to see the band get bigger and stronger to be able to perform in panorama. I would also like to be able to travel and perform in different countries around the world. Lastly, I would love to practice pan in a bigger place and hopefully practice more than once a week.
