Kate Stone – Workshops in Europe – Rafael Sotomayor

This popular workshop from Kate Stone will introduce you to the Handpan.

You can discover and experience this magical instrument as Kate will give you all the tools you need to start and continue to play on your own.


  • Introduction into the instrument
  • Playing techniques
  • Musical basics for the Handpan
  • How to compose
  • Effects on us – healing

Handpans will be provided for the workshop. The participation also includes an option to buy an instrument. Remember that there is a waiting list of at least 2 – 3 months for a Opsilon Handpan, so this is a nice opportunity for those who want to learn how to play the Handpan and take one home with them.
