Perfect your skills and become a top player.

First, pat yourself on the back. You’ve got all the basic skills. But now the magic has gone, you’re stuck on a loop of the same old tunes and have lost inspiration. Whether you’re bored with your dusty repertoire, struggling with tempo, techniques and tricks, or feel like you lack composition skills, this is the course is for you!

Videos that make sense.

Ever tried to learn a tune with only the front view of a handpan? Tricky, isn’t it? All our lessons are shot from above, so your left is his left, your right is his right. No more complicated reverse thinking that melts your brain. No more squinting and pausing to see which notes are being played. Every pattern is shown slowly and progressively so you can study and copy what David’s hands do on the handpan.

Fun & innovative notation system.

Symbols, colours, numbers and ghosts (booooo)... To help you get the most out of the tutorials and make you smile,  David has created a very intuitive notation system for your hands. With just a few minutes’ practice each day, you can learn and remember any pattern. Follow the notes and enjoy rocking these new grooves.

100%
