Hi and Welcome to playpantam.com
The reason I decided to create this site is to make pantam technique easier to learn with fast immediate access online to the videos with a variety of techniques that I find complimenting Pantam/HandPan playing.
Since the pantam is relatively a new instrument in the world, on a global scale there are not so many players that use a wide variety of different techniques, the gap to bridge between you and your Pantam is mostly technical and my goal is to help and support you in creating bridges and have a solid versatile connection to your instrument!
With each technique, you create another bridge, after you experiment and practice the techniques on the site you will have many bridges between you and your pan and a stronger connection, you will also feel more comfortable and confident!
I have recorded 14 videos with some important techniques and the way I practice them, with a tool box of techniques you can really express yourself and have more fun with your pan playing!
It’s takes time, and every technique requires practice time! For me it’s about giving and receiving, we give the pan our time and devotion, practice the same movements repetitively, the more we practice the better we get back from our pan playing.
The content on the site is a result of years of playing, teaching one on one lessons and workshops, and as a pantam maker my playing is also guided by what I think and feel is good for the lifespan of the pantam and it general sound quality.
I’m very excited to share with you the first batch of videos to start with!
I’ve learned a lot from recording this batch and I’m already working on the next one!
So, stay tuned 😉
Enjoy the site !
