I am sorry to say LA handpan workshop @davesislandinstruments will be postponed to June 2022 due to the omicron outbreak. Instead I’ll be offering a free BYO Pan/Drum session this Friday at Dana Point, Doheny beach for anyone who wants to play down the sunset with me. Hope everyone is staying safe out there ❤️
LA Handpan Workshop
Postponed till June 2022
Time: 12-3pm PST
Dave's Island Instruments and internationally recognized handpan artist Adam Maalouf team up to present LA Handpan Workshop. Join us for an afternoon of handpan instruction, demos, conversation and good vibes. Handpans are provided if you do not have your own.
All ages and levels are welcome. The clinic will cover Adam’s unique approach to playing handpan that integrates techniques and rhythms from the Middle East and India. During the workshop, participants will practice on the handpan, compose and improvise new patterns and collaborate with fellow handpan enthusiasts. Participants will walk away with a deepened appreciation for their instrument, new ideas for their playing toolbox, and new friends in our community.
All are welcome.
