The short answer is: YES. This is not a problem as you can adapt each exercise to your instrument even if you have fewer or more notes than me.

I teach patterns/grooves/movements that you can really apply to your own instrument.

For example : if I ask you to descend the scale from note number 8 to 5 starting with the left ( 8 > 7 > 6 > 5) what you’ll have to keep in mind is not to start from the number 8 but to descend your scale starting with the left. And you can do that for example from 6 to 3. That would give you (6 > 5 > 4 > 3)

I never say " I want to to reach your note number 8 " but rather " I want you to reach your highest note ".

MasterTheHandpan has over 4 000 students all with instruments that have different numbers of notes, some have 7, 8, 9 etc. and they all manage to follow the courses as they have been designed to be adapted to different configurations.
