Welcome to the family

The handpan is more than just an instrument: it's a way of life, a provider of happiness, healing and meditation, and an opportunity to be part of a community full of amazing people. 

Whether you are already an accomplished player, an experienced teacher, an enthusiast or an absolute beginner, the Handpan Academy, based at stunning facilities near to Brussels, is calling upon you to spread this wonderful steel magic to a wider audience.

We offer ‘First Touch’ workshops, try-before-you-buy appointments, group sessions and masterclasses hosted by the best musicians in the field. These are held in our classroom, at festivals and at private venues throughout Europe.

In addition, we hold Retreats. They consist of a week of intensive, personalised masterclasses, all set in the most beautiful parts of the world.
Whether you are a panless beginner or a seasoned player seeking new and improved skills, we can help you.
We are also on the look out for great teachers and wonderful volunteers to help us create the best possible events.

And finally, there's our online shop with a selection of fantastic handpans available for you to buy now.
We welcome reputable makers to contact us for a chat about how you can support the Academy, and vice versa.

So get exploring and join our family!
