- Milena Holtz
"I love that every lesson is explained very clearly and together with the notations of the different rhythms and notes, you can't fail to learn to play the handpan properly. The play along tracks make it pleasant to practice and to keep time (without having to listen to a dull metronome). The courses (level 1 to level 3) consist of challenging techniques, cool rhythms and nice melody lines. An all-in-one package. I can really recommend it!"
- Kristien Dauwe
"Since 3 months I play handpan and already became addicted to it. I'm very very happy with the Handpandojo courses. I learned so much from your aproach. Every detail is worked out very carefully, which provides me a profound fundament."
- Arjen Slot
In Level 1, we will start with the very basics - how to create the various sounds on the instrument.
Soon you will put these sounds to use in musical pieces, starting slowly and working your way up.
Once you are comfortable with the basics, we will continue with subjects like ghost notes, arpeggios, Middle-Eastern rhythms and percussive sounds that you can integrate into your playing.
In Level 2, we continue where Level 1 ended. You will use the skills and knowledge that you already have and dive deeper into the world of handpan, music and percussion.
The exercises on Independence will allow you to compose and improvise melodies in a structured way and the various doublestroke techniques open a door into the world of hand- and fingerdrumming concepts from India and South America.
All videos are recorded from your (the player's) perspective with animated notations, slow-motion on demand and playalong tracks that are way more fun than any metronome.
