If you are looking for lessons as a new, intermediate or advanced Handpan, Hang, and Pantam player, we have compiled a list of a few of our favorite players who are also great teachers. We highly recommend them all.
David Charrier – Master the Handpan Online Classes – David has been playing for more than 12 years. He is a great musician with an excellent sense of composition as well as the various techniques that can be applied to these instruments. His online classes cover rhythm, coordination, hand independence, melodies, chords, ear training and a number of grooves and patterns.
David Kuckhermann – World Percussion Academy – David was a world class professionally trained and touring musician before he started playing the Hang ® and Handpan. He brought many techniques from other percussion instruments to the Handpan and was one of the first to offer instructional videos. He currently offers online tutorials as well as a series of DVDs on Hang ® and Handpan techniques in addition to Cajon, Frame Drums, Riq, and Udu.
Colin Foulke – DVD Tutorials – Colin released 2 DVD tutorials in conjunction with David Kuckhermann. He is great player who quickly pushed the limits of what had been done on the Handpan with his own playing style. Now focused primarily on building, Colin also crafts beautiful Handpans of his own.
Peter Levitov – Handpan 360 – There are a couple of video tutorials and also contact information for private lessons in person or via Skype with Peter as well as five other top notch excellent players including Nadishana, Jacob Cole, Maxime Le Royer, Aaron Marsala, and one of our all time favorite players, Kabeção.
