UPBEAT: HANDPAN WORKSHOPS FOR NEW GROOVES AND CONNECTIONS
Sundays, 7pm UK time
pay what you can
We will be using the Zoom Meeting application, if you don’t have zoom already you’ll need to download it. I’ll can help you with any questions.
Each week, I will guide you through new exercises, pieces of music, improvisation techniques or your own mini compositions through call & response and lots of repetition, as well as utilising voice and body percussion exercises. We will all play along to the same beats I have created specifically for the sessions. After the main content of the workshop is finished, we will have time to hang out, share our experiences, connect and grow.
Every participant will be muted during the main portion of the session, meaning no matter which scale you have or what your level your playing ability is, everyone can play together at the same time. It is up to you to interpret my instructions however you like!
For now, every Sunday at 7pm UK time. That’s 11am west coast America.
If the demand allows, I will split the workshops into two separate sessions: beginners & advanced.
You don't have to commit to every session, as each week we will be starting fresh. Though it would be great to see you there as often as you can make it!

I recognise that many of us are artists and musicians who have been badly affected financially by the current crisis, so I offer this workshop on a sliding scale. Please pay what you can. If you are struggling and wish to join us, contact me and we can work something out.
I’ve created this workshop in order to find a way for us all to connect and play together again, even from afar! I also wanted to offer the space for us to stay after the workshop content has finished, and connect with each other in smaller groups. There’ll be time to meet new friends, catch up with old ones, ask for advice and tips, offer feedback, or have some extra practice time.
The main goal of this workshop is to simply have fun. But we will be learning new things and honing our skills along the way.
I hope you can join me!
