Cajon Training for basic-Intermediate
- OUTLINE -
In this course, students will be trained to play rhythms of basic to intermediate complexity on the Cajon which originates from Peru and Spain. Students will be brought through the various common rhythms traditionally played in Peruvian music, as well as rhythms that have been popularised in the Spanish Flamenco music scene. Students will also be taught to mic' up cajons for performances, and will also be trained to combine various auxiliary percussions in their performances, to beautify and further complement their playing of the cajon. Nearing the latter part of the course, students will be tasked to compose one or two cajon pieces of their own as a group, and will practice and prepare the piece/s for future performances.
