Details

I'm very excited to start up a new beginners course again!

Join our weekly cajon classes where we have fun, learn a lot about music and rhythm and make new friends. We also learn to have more confidence and enjoy expressing ourselves through rhythm and music. Plus it's the coolest new thing, to play cajon, so don't get left out! :-)

I will be running 2 courses lasting 10 weeks each (beginners and improvers) from 9 Oct 2018 till 11 Dec. New beginners are at 6:30-7:30pm, and then the improvers group (which has just completed the beginners course) is at 7:40-8:40pm, same days and same venue. It is £16 per class, or £12.50 if you enrol to the entire 10 week course upfront. You are welcome to join both classes, at the 'second' class costing only £8 (so 50% discount for joining both classes). If you want to enrol to both classes upfront for all the 10 weeks, it will cost you £20 per class (£200 upfront)

You do not need a cajon to join the classes as I have some cajons for hire during lesson time (at £3) and I also sell some of my own amazing handmade Cruz Cajon for sale at at discount price for any enrolled students so please check them out before buying one elsewhere, you wont get a better deal anywhere else!

The beginners course:

We will take a step by step look at technique, posture, learning different grooves, ex and how to play with musicians throughout this course. By the end of the 10 weeks you should be able to play cajon comfortably and have learnt a few different grooves and styles on the cajon. We cover a range of styles, focusing on pop, rock, blues, and world music rhythms (flamenco, latin etc) for the beginners course.

I would suggest you enrol for the entire course to get the best results from the lessons, but if there is a class or 2 you cant attend, don't worry as we always cover what we learnt the week before in each lesson before moving on to the next topic. There might be a class or 2 which we need to shift the lessons as I do at times travel for festivals and shows, but at present I am in London for all the 10 classes. Should there be a shift to another date (it will always be the same time and on a Tues), should you be unable to make that class and you have been enrolled or have paid upfront online I would gladly offer you a refund for that one class.

For those enrolling for the entire course upfront, there is a huge discount, this is to encourage you to commit to the course so you can take full advantage of the course and become a great cajon player in no time! To pay as you go per class it's £16, and if you enroll for the entire course it's £12.50 per class i.e. 125GBP instead of £160 for the whole course.

To enrol to the whole course, please contact me on [masked]. Payment for enrolment can be via Paypal or Bank transfer or cash. (you can also book a cajon for hire for the whole course, or choose to buy one of my cajon at a super discount)

Alternatively simply pay as you go here per class on meetup.

I look forward to meeting you, this is going to be so much fun!

For anyone interested in hiring a cajon for class, please request the hire of a cajon at least 3 days prior to the class to ensure I have one available for you for class. Please do so via private message on meetup here. I cannot guarantee a cajon for hire so the sooner your request one, the better!

I look forward to seeing you at class!
