This course fits my learning style. I learn best when I can access the information 24/7, when I can go back to the previous session with ease, when I can ask questions and get responses from the teacher and others.

Handpan learning, simplified.

See every note

Immersive videos with clear views

Ever tried to learn a tune with only the front view of a handpan? Quite the challenge, right? All our lessons are shot from above. This means when the instructor uses their left hand, it aligns with your left, and the same for the right.

Mirror your teacher's hand movements on the handpan with ease

Say goodbye to the mind-bending task of reverse thinking

Break down every pattern gradually

Smile while you learn

A notation system that's fun & innovative

Dive into a world of symbols, colors, numbers, and friendly ghosts (booooo). Designed to help you get the most out of the tutorials, our intuitive hand notation system makes it easy. Simply follow along & let those grooves flow.

Easy-to-understand notation system

Learn and remember any pattern

No music theory required

Notations aren't in all courses. Once you've got the basics down, you won't always need them.

Practice offline

E-books: your offline handpan guide

Many of our courses offer a notation booklet packed with exercises. Print it out, take it to your favorite spot, and enjoy the freedom to practice offline, anytime, anywhere.

Understand and master patterns faster

Print and download e-book for easy access

Learn offline on your own schedule

Some advanced courses skip the e-book. They believe in less reading, more playing!

100%

Play, pause, thrive

Progress at your pace

Dive into lessons anytime and rewatch as often as you like to fit your schedule and lifestyle. No matter where you pause, it's a breeze to pick up right where you left off.
