Why is the handpan so special to you? The Handpan gives me inner peace, calmness, but above all a lot of pleasure. The magical sounds of the handpan continue to enchant me. I play every day to keep developing on the handpan. Because you don’t need a musical background to play the handpan, this makes it the perfect instrument for me.

Because since the handpan has been in my life, not a day goes by that I don’t play on it.

The gratitude is great, when you see or hear that people are excited about the handpan after a workshop and start adding this joy to their lives themselves.
What is your most special memory of the instrument? After seeing a video of the handpan, at first I didn’t believe that all that was just from the handpan. After an introductory workshop I was even more enthusiastic, only I didn’t get such a nice sound out of it right away. The best experience remains that I came home with a handpan, was very relaxed in my own environment, started playing on it and there were my 1st beautiful sounds. The smile on my face spoke volumes. That smile hasn’t gone away since.
