Matt offers a wide range of teaching methods for both full drum kits, cajon playing, group sessions and tuning...among many other things.
The cajon is a wonderful, versatile instrument. The cajon box drum is thought to have originated in Peru. In the 16th century, it wasn't unusual for folk to make these instruments from old packing crates and use them to replace the native drums of Africa. Cajon drums in Cuba were made from old drawers and other household box type structures and used to accompany Cuban and Latino Styles.
The word Cajon actually means box, or drawer in Spanish and is found as a major player in Spanish Flamenco music.
Matt has a range of different types of Cajon suitable for varying degrees of experience and taste.
