Hello, I am David

As a multi-instrumentalist, I’m passionate about a variety of rhythms and melodies. In 2004, I discovered the handpan, a unique  "sound sculpture" with enchanting tones. My passion for the study of this instrument and my desire to create have allowed me to share my music throughout the world. Whether as a solo artist, as a duo, or with a bigger group, I’ve always loved sharing my own creations and helping people discover this instrument. Over the past few years, I’ve really wanted to teach the handpan to others. I often travel to other countries in order to give “masterclasses” and individual courses. I love seeing players enjoy the handpan and its infinite possibilities, and I love watching my students blossom in their musical journey. In order to continue to encourage and train as many handpan enthusiasts as possible and see its magic impact lives, in 2016, I created an online handpan school called MasterTheHandpan.com.
