Cajon Lessons

The Cajon (Cajón) is a percussion instrument of Peruvian origin which for some time has become very popular in Europe and has attracted many artists, not just percussionists.

Small (50cm high), light and practical, its grip is very fast. One sits on it and one uses his hands to play by striking on its frontal wall.
The Cajon is sonorous and different sounds, serious or acute, with or without stamp, are obtained according to where it is struck and according to the position of the hands and the fingers.

Thanks to its different sound combinations, it is used in many musical styles, either as a percussion instrument but also as a “replacement” of the drums for practical or musical reasons.

Finally the Cajon is a great tool to discover the rhythm and improve.

Main Axes of Study
  • Discovery of the instrument
  • Striking techniques, study of different sounds
  • Understanding different rhythms
  • Accompaniment on several styles of music
  • Update on learning, exchange

Feel the rhythms, learn to accompany or accompany musicians on pieces of variety, pop-rock, blues, etc. Is also part of the objectives of the Cajon internship.

Through concrete examples, everyone can move forward in their musical choices.

Carl Bouchaux teaches the Cajon at the MJC in Venelles, in private lessons and during regular group classes.

Next stage

The interest of an internship is to be able to practice together, to learn from each other and to compare their practice and their learning with others. The duration of an internship also allows to discuss the different themes necessary for the practice (see above).
