NEW online cajon school

skypecajonschoollogoSo this is the year that I will officially start up my long awaited online Cajon School.

I have had so many requests from all over the world to start this up, and I am so happy that I have enough free time in my schedule to get this going!

The online school will kick off with 2 classes a week at different times, one to accommodate EU time zone and the other to accommodate countries with a different time Zone like the USA.

There is a limited amount of space in each class so make sure you register for your space in the class as soon as possible. We aim to start up the classes within the next 2 – 3 weeks, we will commence once we have enough students enrolled to make the classes viable.

Course information:

During the first 5 week course, we will look at the fundamentals of the cajon, such as the correct technique and hand stroke position, posture, different sounds etc.

We will learn a few very useful ex and techniques that you will keep with you for life and learn a range of cool grooves from different musical genres.

We will also look at how to apply our new grooves to a musical setting with other instruments and musicians.

Get feedback from Heidi as you progress during the lessons and share what you learn with other cajon players around the world.

Be part of our cajonbox family!

It is advisable that you enrol for the entire course to take full advantage of the classes.
If you drop in or miss a class during the course, it would be your responsibility to catch up to the rest of the group.
Students 2
 

What you would need

You would need access to the internet, a webcamera and a web microphone. No previous musical or cajon experience needed! Of course having a cajon would be important, but you don’t need one to start, remember that the cajon is just a box and if you can somehow simulate one, then by all means, don’t let the fact that you don’t have a cajon stop you from learning, after all, it’s more about getting your hands used to the technique as a beginner. Good manners is also essential for joining the classes, anyone who is disruptive or disrespectful will be asked to leave the ‘classroom’:-)

Please note that all details on this course is subject to change.
The courses will only proceed if there is a minimum amount of students enrolled to each course.

    hi. could you tell me when your next online course will be starting. I work shifts so I might have to drop in when I can.
    in the meantime Im enjoying your lesson videos. Im waiting for my cruz cajon to arrive. I have an intermediate level acoustic drum kit, intermediate electronic kit and intermediate cajon so im very excited about stepping up to a top quality cajon.
    when I started drum kit I bought a rudiments training dvd by tommy igoe called great hands for a lifetime, Ive just started using it as a learning exercise on the cajon and it seems to translate very well.

    Hola Heidi!
    Soy de Puerto Rico y estoy interesada en tomar clases por internet via Skype. Siempre me ha gustado la percusión pero nunca he tomado clases. Toco el bongó pero de oido, nunca he tomado clases. Esta navidad me regalaron mi primer cajon, y la verdad que me gustaría aprender como tocarlo formalmente. Navegando por internet vi tu youtube channel y me encantó. Por favor, me gustaría saber cuando comienzan las clases para matricularme! Así tan pronto me convierta en una experta me compró un cajon como el tuyo!
    Gracias,

    Hello, Heidi!
    Depending on whether or not I have time after school, I may be interested in joining your Skype cajon classes. I have a few questions though.
    1. Are children (I’m only 12) allowed to join the classes?
    2. Do the classes require any past experience in drum/cajon playing?
    3. Does time difference matter? (I’m from a little Caribbean island called Trinidad)
    4. What cajon would you recommend that I get as an inexperienced beginner?
    Thanks in advance,
    Kyla L. 🙂
    PS I accidentally posted this comment on the Cruz Cajon page as well because I thought I was on this one. Sorry!

      Hey Diego
      The online school is now going to be happening in conjunction with my physical cajon classes in London, which is every Tues from 7pm – 8:30pm. We’ll be streaming the lesson live via my youtube channel and it won’t be expensive to join in the class via the Youtube stream.
      This is now going to be set up and we’ll start up in 4 weeks time when my new courses start up in London. The course will last 10 weeks, there will be a beginner course and an improvers course for people with some previous playing experience.
      I will keep you updated as to when enrolment for this will start and all the details!

    Hi. I would certainly do this. I did not sign up for the London lessons because it would be too much in my schedule to get over to the venue after work and then home to see the family. Online is perfect!

    Hi, I’m getting a cajon for Christmas but I live in the country in Northern Ireland and don’t know anywhere close by that I can get lessons. I would love the opportunity to attend the online Skype lessons. I look forward to working through the online videos when I get my hands on my new cajon – Happy Christmas!

      Hey Conleth! Skype lessons might very well be starting up along with my London cajon courses, on Tues from the 14th Jan. I hope you are signed up to my newsletter to stay updated to all the details coming up this week!

    I am learning Cajon (I play stringed instruments now) and would love to take online lessons. I am in Philadelphia, PA, USA East coast. I take Mandolin lessons online at artistworks.com and love it! Maybe you can teach there too (they have percussion instructors but not Cajon) Thanks for the free lessons too and your wonderful music!

    Have these lessons started? I feel like i’ve hit a wall in my playing. Struggling to find some intermediate lessons. I see basic stuff all over the web that’s just boring and super advanced stuff that I just can’t keep up with.
