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.
