Breaks & Fills
Dedicated to taking you even further into the world of becoming a top class cajon player! In this section we learn a number of break & fill patterns and put them into context within our grooves.
We actually also learn how to implement some of our rudiments and exercises learnt in the technique section in this part, implementing it within our playing. Very exciting, fun and next level!
Cajonkit & Add-ons
Moving slowly into more intermediate and advanced levels as we dive into adding other drums and accesories to our cajon, such as the Cymbal, the snare drum or djembe and a footpedal. A great introduction filled with great patterns to develop independence and a deeper sense and awareness of your internal tempo and beat. Excellent for expanding your sound and adding tons of new colours and nuances to your playing.

After some great feedback from you guys, I have decided to also write a book with all the notation of the exercises, lessons and rhythms patterns we are learning throughout the Modern Method.
