Musical Visionary: Dr. Elliot “Ellie” Mannette is a visionary tuner. Very early in his development as a master tuner, he envisioned the steel pan as an orchestral instrument. Even as he was helping to birth the instrument that was still in its infancy he was imagining its potential. His innovative mind and ears saw a family of steelpan instruments performing music as an orchestra. This was the dream that imbued his every hammer stroke on every individual instrument.
