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.

Clear path with step-by-step learning

Easy-to-follow video lesson

Track your progress

From Home, Yet Never Alone

The Academy is way more than courses. It's a vibrant handpan community that thrives on mutual support, where members connect, share, and inspire each other.
Welcome to your handpan home.

Dive into our community

Embarking on an online journey doesn't mean you're on your own.

A private and safe community

Not big on social media? Same here. Step into our ad-free space—just handpan talks. Welcome to a truly private space.

Real conversations over likes

Sure, we have likes too, but we prioritize genuine discussions. It's about true sharing, not collecting points.

Your space, your rules

DMs, notifications, personal details? Share what you want, when you want. Whether a talker or a listener, you're in control.

Live Workshops

The mentor Series

Every month, we host livestreamed workshops featuring the finest handpan instructors. A wide range of subjects will be covered to ensure continuous exploration and upward advancement in your handpan playing.

School-wide exercise

Handpan Challenges

Once a month we introduce a fresh and fun new challenge designed to test your handpan playing skills. What makes these challenges special is that our entire community actively participates in them, thus fostering an enjoyable learning atmosphere and offering support and accountability every step of the way.

Coaching

Student focus

In addition to having access to a dedicated channel within the community to receive feedback from peers, David, Dan and Sylvain will also select several student videos each month to watch live and to provide commentary on. It's a golden opportunity to gain valuable advice from our team and to grow as a musician.

Virtual Happy-Hour

MasterTheHappy-Hour

Once a month, kick back, relax, grab your favorite drink and come hang out with the team! Ask questions, meet other new members, get helpful practice, study tips and discuss all-things handpan! It's a great way for us to meet you, and to help you get the most out of your membership. We can’t wait to see you!

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.

Will I be charged taxes?

All taxes are included in our prices. What you see is exactly what you pay.

Can I download the videos?

We totally get why you'd want to! But currently, our lessons are only accessible online. This decision helps protect the content from unauthorized sharing, ensuring respect for the work put into each course. We appreciate your understanding.

However, we've crafted eBooks with all the music scores from the lessons. This way, you can practice even when offline.

And good news – we're working on an app that'll allow offline lesson access. We're excited about it but don't have a specific launch date just yet. Stay tuned!

Can I access the courses on multiple devices?

Yes, you can access our courses on multiple devices. Whether you prefer to learn on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you'll have full access to all course materials.

What if I need to cancel my membership?

We'd be sad to see you go, but if you decide the membership isn't for you, it's easy to stop the renewal. Just a heads up: we don't offer refunds for partially used membership periods, but you can still enjoy access until the current period ends.
