    Hey Heidi.
    I saw your Youtube video with the ensemble and it was really impressive, I enjoyed it a lot. I’ve been a hand percussionist for the past 25 years and that type of ensemble is what I would like to perform in. Nice stuff.

      Hello!!!! Thank you for the very very nice feedback, it makes me super happy!! Great to hear it’s not a waste of a site and that it is indeed helping cajoneros y neras! 🙂

    I stumbled upon your Youtube videos while searching for rythym instrument tutorials and I was so blown away by the both the instrument and the musician that I decided I HAD to learn how to play!
    I debuted my cajon with a group of musicians this past weekend and everyone was so curious and impressed with the range of sounds and grooves that this little box can produce. I had an absolute blast!
    I would love to pre-order one of your cajons. I am patiently waiting to upgrade my entry-level instrument to something I know will have both a robust sound and a robust build! Can’t wait!

    • Heidi Joubert Post author

      Awesome Karen!
      You’re right, this box is super amazing, I have the same reaction everywhere I go play, life is great with one of these!!! I am presently listing my Cruz Cajon for pre order and it will be ready to pre order by end the weekend, i will inform you via the newsletter ok!!! 🙂
      Thanks for subscribing and for your encouragement!

    Canto desde que tengo memoria…Me lleva el Soul, Funk, GOSPEL! Hip-Hop, R&B…soy de Argentina, acá no tenemos la cultura negra arraigada y cuesta conseguir información o gente BUENA en estos estilos. Toco un poco batería, huevos, pandereta, cajón y cualquier instrumento de percusión que esté a mi alcance!!. Encuentro tus videos sencillos, y contagiosos. Quiero más data! Más lecciones! Más instrumentos!
    Hermosa voz, hermoso Groove!

    Hey Heidi
    I impromptu went into a music shop last week to buy a guitar and ended up coming out with a Cajun as well as the guitar. I stumbled on your website as want to learn to play it well. Your videos and band are amazing and they encourage me to practice, practice, practice. Well done and thank you for encouraging me.

    Hey Heidi,
    many thanks for your great website. I admire your groovy and inspired way of playing the cajon and I actually learned a lot from your lessons. I was really impressed by the video you did with the hangdrum player. The first part with cajon and darbuka I enjoyed most.

    • Heidi Joubert Post author

      Very good question!!! I will make a nice video on this, it’s hard to explain and easier to show ok!!! Sign up to my newsletter and you will be the first to know when the vid is up!

    Hi Heidi
    Thanksvery much for this website and your helpful videos on YouTube. I bought a cajon on Friday and have been practicing your funk and balerias rhythms. Glad to hear about your new London Jam – hopefully I will master the basics by the time it starts. I have a question about adjusting the tapas. Is it okay to have different tones on the corners (ie tight on one corner, loose on the other)? You see my new cajon has tapa screws which are not 100% straight – is that normal

    I’m a wood shop teacher in Alberta Canada. Stumbled upon your videos while researching project ideas for my high school students. We built cigar box guitars last year and figured a drum would make a perfect accompaniment. Ties in perfectly with part of the curriculum I teach. Needless to say I will have my class build a Cajon. As a class we will build a set and donate them to one of our towns elementary school music programs. If you don’t mind I have linked a number of your U-tube videos with my students project outline to assist with their skill development. Some students have seen the Cajon project for next year (after summer) and are already eager to get back into class to build and play.
    I made a prototype myself and have been learning some beats with help from your links. Its great fun.
    Your videos are well done, you explain and demonstrate technique very well. Signed up for your newsletter to get additional tips, ideas.
    I’ll have to send a video upon completion.

    • Heidi Joubert Post author

      Hey Dave
      Wow this is a very nice surprise! I would love to see the video, and even perhaps write a blog about it, can you send me some pics too? I would like to help in any way I can, it sounds cool and like a really good project for the kids, bet they love you, I love this whole idea!

  12. Jupitor

    Heidi, thank you for your lessons.. You’re a wonderful teacher as well as musician.. Learning the Compass has always been next to impossible.. Except when you teach it.. I can’t thank you enough for that.. Bessos y abrazos .. -Júpitor

    Hello Heidi,

    Hi Heidi.
    This is Elias from Mexico.
    I only want to say that i was looking for an instrument that makes me happy. I found my soul in the Cajón, and you inspiring to me. Thanks a lot.
    I have my own Cajón, but i am thinking about buying one of yours…do you have delivers to Mexico?

    • K. Kluge

      I found my soul in the Cajón…
      An amazing comment, because this is precisely what happened to me. Not something I would ever have expected, much less foreseen. An unlikely epiphany in unlikely circumstances. This is a most marvellous instrument, and I truly do believe that that is because of its past, because of the fact that it is living proof that not only can you not really enslave a human being, no matter how hard you try, you can also not take away his voice – his instrument. You put him in chains, take away his chords, and he ends up sitting on a box once used to ship cod.
      The Cajón is freedom, the Cajón is independence, the Cajón is the triumph of intelligence over stupidity.
      I’m going to drop by and check out your… Cajóns, Madame Joubert!

  20. Joseph Daniels

    After reading your story, I truly appreciate who you are and your musical background. Thank god again for another great musician.

  21. Brizzo

    Hi Heidi! I’ll be coming to London at the end of the month for a couple weeks. Will you be performing anywhere towards the end of November to the beginning of December?
    It would be great to catch you live!
