Amy will teach you everything about her approach to music and handpan playing.
How to come up with creative ideas, how to get started with improvisation, how to accompany yourself and other musicians and more. You will also lear some of her compositions on the way and can get inspired by her playful and creative approach to the handpan and music in general!
Writing your own music has never been easier.
No matter where you are in your handpan journey, you will be able to use the ideas and concepts in this course to compose music on the handpan.
You will start from a groove, a pattern, a melody, a harmony and from an ostinato, learn about musical structure, phrasing and a little bit of music theory. Throughout the course you will follow a series of assignments and by then end you will have a repertoire of your own songs.
Amy is a handpan player, songwriter, percussionist and music practicioner from the UK.
The power of music and its ability to build connection between strangers, communities, nature, and the self is what drives Amy to travel and share her unique approach to creating sound. Knowing just how transformative and empowering the simple act of playing music together can be, Amy crafts her performances and workshops to create a space where this connection can blossom. She has a diverse repertoire of modern mantras, poignant but often playful songs, and uplifting melodies that are constantly evolving as she shifts from place to place.
She first learned to sing and drum as a child around festival campfires and as she grew to find her own voice, she quickly fell in love with the handpan, discovering it to be the perfect instrument for her vision. She has since become a familiar face in the global handpan community, offering workshops, tutorials and private tuition. She is a certified music educator through Trinity College London, with a background in therapeutic music and training in Taiko drumming.
Wherever she goes, Amy hopes to discover, share, and connect.
