Marc Brooks - Arranger
Wilfred Kieal, Jr.
Despite having been born in the United States, Marc was able to connect
to his parents’ Caribbean heritage through music. Around the age of 11,
Marc was introduced to steel pan while watching footage from Trinidad’s
carnival performances. He was amazed with the sound of the instrument
and by the age of 13, Marc began learning more about the instrument
through Sesame Flyers International, a well-known cultural organization
located in the heart of the Caribbean community in Brooklyn, New York.
Having quickly developed a love for the instrument, he sought to expand
his knowledge of steel pan and music by reading theory books and taking
advantage of every opportunity to rehearse. By the age of 14, Marc had
already joined Sesame Flyers’ stage side band and began teaching the
very same pan class that he once was a part of.
