1pm - 4pm:   Handpan & Rhythm Workshop with Adam Maalouf

Adam will be guide an extended handpan & rhythm workshop. This is a rare opportunity to learn the handpan in a safe, fun and encouraging environment.
Together we will explore rhythms on the handpan and learn a group composition. ***All ages and experience levels welcomed. Handpans are provided. Class Time 1-4pm

The handpan is a steel instrument developed in 2000 in Switzerland. The instrument is formed by the fusion of the Steel Pan from Trinidad and the Ghatam (a clay pot drum) from South India, creating a uniquely multicultural voice. Handpans will be provided, and if you own a handpan, please bring it.
