How does it work?

With our courses, you can learn to play the handpan at your own pace.
Once purchased, you have lifetime access to a course and can practice wherever and whenever you want.

Step-by-step instruction

New techniques and musical ideas are first taught step-by-step and then integrated into a little composition. This way you expand your repertoire of music in a playful way while you practice.

Is online instruction effective for learning a musical instrument?

It is actually awesome and can work amazingly well!
Not only do our courses provide you with detailed explanations for everything, you also get a notation booklet and playalong rhythm tracks to make your practice more fun. We have a facebook group where you can share your composition with others and see their progress as well. Last but not least, we have a 30-day money back option, no questions asked. So you can simply jump in and try the courses for yourself.

Hands down, David is the best remote teacher! He goes straight to the point without wasting time. His method is simple and I can’t believe that I’m playing a beautiful song on second day of touching the Handpan! You are amazing David!!!
