Our mission is to make you smile while you learn music theory. Guaranteed no horrible school flashbacks!
We truly believe that a grasp of music theory is an enormous asset in understanding your handpan.
Be more creative in your playing
Understanding the theory allows you to find your own way musically, come up with new ideas, new chord progressions, and finish your compositions.
Understand what you’re playing
Theory expands your musical vocabulary and develops your overall ‘feel’ for music. You will get to know your instrument and your own playing style better. It can’t replace the ear, but it can definitely fine-tune it.
Save time and disappointment
Mastering theory means you can jot down your compositions so you’ll never forget them. Plus you’ll be able to sight-read. Your ears are your biggest asset, but theory is your ears’ best and speediest friend.
Communicate better with other musicians
Music is a language. Theory will help you to have a conversation and share your ideas with others during the creative process.
Know how to choose your handpans
It can be really tough to work out which scales go together and why. With your new knowledge, you can make well-informed choices and create your own combinations.
