Meet your teacher, David

Teaching isn’t just about sharing knowledge; it's about igniting passion. With each lesson, I aim to bring the handpan to life for you, making every note more intuitive and personal. My method is more than just a technique; it's a journey into the heart of the music, helping you shape melodies that genuinely resonate.

There’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing a student not just learn, but truly connect with their handpan.

Witnessing my students grow, evolve, and find their rhythm is truly the heart and soul of what I do.

David Charrier
