    First saw one of your videos on YouTube. Great groove and straightforward approach to teaching. Made your subject matter Very understandable. I was wondering if you were still active, and so my search brought me here. Glad to see you’re still playing and inspiring others to enjoy grooving on cajon.

      Hey Tim! It is so awesome to hear from you! I had recently taken a rather long break from online life, which was much needed, and I also spent time finishing up the Modern Method for Cajon, which has been a big dream in my heart since the early days of playing…. and I am very excited to be making a comeback with it very soon! I really appreciate your words. When one takes a break, sometimes it can feel like people have forgotten about you, and your msg has just confirmed that this is indeed not so! And it is much needed encouragement at exactly the right moment, thank you! 😊❤
