    Hello Heidi,
    So happy that watching your video on internet.
    I’m from China, I like cajon very much, but sorry my english is not good.
    My question is do you have lessons for people who wanna teach cajon to others. I think this is good for kids, I am 2 kids’s father, and I want teach more kids, how should I prepare for that?
    Thank you very much and glade to “talk” to you, 🙂
    best wishes!

      Hey! Why not immitate what I do on my lessons to the kids? Thats should help! Also you can make learning fun for kids by letting them sing the rhythmic phrases!

      Hey Mercelo!
      At the moment we have no bags, but you would be able to buy one here in London in any drum shop easily.
      You would be welcome to buy one of my cruz cajons if I have any in stock when you come. You can try and buy the cajon at my cajon classes which take place every Tues evening from 7pm- 9pm in central London.
      Hope this helps

          Classes are tonight from 7pm – 9pm in Old street, the venue is ISTD2 Dance studios, in the lecture room. Here is the address.
          ISTD2 Dance Studios & Meeting Rooms are situated at 346 Old Street in London, just 6 minutes walk from Old Street tube station and only 12 minutes from Liverpool Street Station.
          346 Old Street, London EC1V 9NQ
          It costs £20 to drop in for both classes. I have no new cajons with me today, they only arrive on Thursday so I would not be able to sell one to you until Thursday.

    Hello Heidi,
    from my point of view it is already a fact that you are the most motivated/ing cajon teacher… please keep on rocking and believing in god!
    And… could you please tell me how I can participate in learning from you somehow, even if I live in Munich/Germany. I read something about DVDs, a europe tour or skype lessons. Maybe there is a possibility to come to your school for some sort of a 1 week intensive workshop or something similar?
    In each case I would like to get more detailed information.
    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards,
    Jonny Taubitz

    Hi Heidi,
    I would like the ask more bout your cajon, is there a difference with Cruz and Toro besides the color? Thinking of buy a new cajon and donating my old one to my church.
    I have been watching your video on youtube and it’s very helpful. Practicing on it now. Thank you.
    Firstly i would like to know what kind of wood you are using on ur Cajon? my present Cajon is made from rubber wood and equiped with Snare string(Snare Cajon). Hope you can help me understand more the differences between String Cajon and Snare Cajon. I don’t know the difference about these 2 Cajon. Saw a gig one night at a local pub usingthe cajon as drum and was super interested and went up to him asking bout it. Without thinking much and bought one for myself.
    Hope to hear from you soon and God bless.

      Thanks for your enquiry. At the moment I am unsure about my stock and also about woods as we are making major improvement changes to my cruz cajon brand as well as expanding the range, and this coupled with the fact that we have been experiencing such a huge amount of orders and demand, it might yet be a little while… however, I must say that it will be well worth the wait, seeing that the cruz cajon will be better than ever before made of much better wood when we stock up again! :-)) Sign up to our newsletter to stay updated!

    Hi heidi
    I have been guitar since a year but nw I’m interested in playing cajon
    can u please suggest and price limit and nice Cajon brand

      Hello John
      The only cajon brand I wouldrecommend is my own signature line brand. I know it’s a bit above your price range, but not to worry, for the last month I have been working on adding a a few new models to my Cruz range, being the kids cajons and now also a really great quality, handmade, beginners cajon, which will be sold for a bit less than my current models. If you can hang in abit, I should have them out within the next month! 🙂
      One thing I can say is that it will be the best value for money you can get!

      Hey!!! Again I translated it and this is what I got:
      Хайди hi still time. Prompt please what to buy кахон??? What кахон will be better to sound under a guitar? In the Internet has found different tools in the sizes and the prices. I do not know what to choose. In advance thanks!!! And how you find time to answer everyone who writes to you?:))))))))
      It seems you are asking which cajon to buy? I would recommend the CRUZ CAJON Guitar string, it’s the one I play the most. The colour is up to you what you prefer! 🙂
      Thanks!

    Hi Heidi,
    My son, aged 9, is learning standard drums and has been for 2.5 years. However, it’s rather a solitary occupation and a friend suggested I take him along to a percussion workshop to enjoy another aspect and fire his enthusiasm a bit. First of all, is he too young to attend the Cambridge workshops and if not, would he need to be at the first one and come to all of them? It’s quite a late finish for him on a school night. Are you planning any daytime workshops in Cambridge?
    Many thanks!

      Hi Louis
      Good to hear from you. firstly, no your son is not too young, we have a few other youngsters in our class (it’s oretty mixed), there’s another 11 yr old, a 10 yr old, a 13 yr old, a 14 yr old and a 16 yr old. Seeing that he already plays drums, I am certain that he would definitely be just as good if not better on the cajon than most of the adult students! 🙂 He’d be most welcome, we started up yesterday, but you can enrol him from next week. If you want to do that, please send me an email at londoncajonschool@gmail.com and we’ll get him on the course!
      P.S about the saytime workshops, initially I wanted to do a seperate kids class at 4:30 pm on wed, but I need more interest, more kids interested to do that. I am working on it and it might just be that we split the class in about 2 weeks time once I have enough interest from the younger one’s. If you can promote it or just spread the news, that could definitely speed up this process! 🙂 I think I will get in touch with some of the musical directors in Cambridge who work with the kids, to see if they might be interested in letting people know about this cajon course)
      Many thanks!

    Heidi,
    Had a great time at the HANGOVER , despite the snow. I have posted photos on facebook if you’d like to become friends.
    Also, one of the venues at which we run workshops in the Summer, Hawkwood College, near Stroud, is hoping to run a weekend with Layne Redmond in August….. thought that you’d like to know. IF this comes off , Lina and I will definitely be there- unmissable!
