Workshops for all those who already have some experience with playing the handpan (e.g. those who already own an instrument or have been to our beginners course).

These sessions are adapted to different levels so it is challenging enough but not too overwhelming for all those who come to enjoy music with us.

In each workshop we will explore a different topic - get in touch if you'd like to explore something in particular!

Marketa - handpan music

Teacher and founder of the Handpan Academy Bristol

About Marketa

After years as a classically trained pianist, Marketa began her journey with the handpan in 2016, finding a new approach to music with this instrument. She began teaching in 2018, before starting up The Handpan Academy in August 2020. Marketa performs both solo and as part of the handpan duo MEA. Her love for the handpan comes from the freedom to create your own melodies and rhythms and her classes guide students to express themselves through this unique instrument, connecting to music in a different way.
