Handpan Lessons and Sound Healing

Why Choose Me as Your Handpan Teacher and Coach?

With over 20 years of experience as an educator, facilitator, curriculum designer, coach, and teacher-of-teachers, I bring a deep understanding of learning theory and its application to whatever and whomever I am blessed enough to teach. Combine these skills and knowledge with a background in human development as a therapist, present-centered ways of being and techniques as a mindfulness teacher, and you have a unique blend that might be just what you’re looking for.

I have also dedicated much time and energy to learning the handpan in many different styles and from a variety of teachers. I began this process of learning in 2018 and have documented and published much of my learning on my YouTube channel AwakenEngage. I am also well-versed in and part of the communities of the most popular online handpan schools. It may be that you have ordered an online handpan course and are trying to get the most out of it but find yourself at a bit of a dead end or in need of coaching and more extensive feedback. If so, consider reaching out. I’d love to see if we would be a good fit for each other.


I teach Handpan Lessons in person and virtually using the Handpan Learning Cycle©. Please see the diagram below to get acquainted with the process flow. You may choose to purchase one HLC or a series of them, depending on your needs. I also have created several series of Handpan Videos that are available for purchase individually or as a package. These range from “Developing Meditative Patterns,” to “Building Your Rhythmic Repertoire,” to learning techniques like “Split Hand and Split-Finger.”
