Kate Stone & Rafael Sotomayor – Handpan Workshops

This popular workshop by Kate Stone & Rafael Sotomayor will introduce you to the world of the Opsilon Handpan.

    Workshops in Süßen


    Beginner Workshops

    Discover this magical instrument and experience pure joy as Kate and Rafael give you all the tools you need to get off to the best possible start and play independently in the future.

    • Introduction to the instrument
    • Playing techniques
    • Musical basics for the handpan
    • How to compose
    • Effects on us - healing

    Handpans will be provided for the workshop. Attendance also includes an option to purchase an instrument. Remember that there is a waiting list of at least 4-6 weeks for an Opsilon Handpan, so the workshop is a nice opportunity for those who want to learn how to play the handpan, but also for those who want to take one home right away.

    When you buy a beginner package (D Minor 9 or 13, with a PU zipper or fiberglass hardcase), a free participation in a beginner's workshop is included. Therefore, you save the ticket price of 150€.
    This offer is valid for 3 months after you receive your handpan. The beginner workshops are always well visited, so make sure you contact us early to save your spot.
