Having found ourselves in a rather unique position; myself as a handpan player, qualified teacher and percussion workshop leader and also working alongside a superb handpan maker; and my wife, Laura, as a very experienced youth music worker and project leader I got to thinking...
In the coming months we will be working towards setting up a social enterprise business that will work with a wide range of different groups of people using handpans. We will be running various hands-on experience workshops for people who are interested in playing one of these instruments, and using them in therapeutic situations such as local hospitals and hospices, in sessions with children with profound and multiple disabilities, people with anxiety and depression... the possibilities are endless.
In order to be able to run these sessions and experiences at very affordable prices, we will also be running corporate team building sessions as a way of offsetting these costs.
If any of these ideas interest you, then please don't hesitate to get in touch for more information.
Watch this space for developments!
