About the Classes
– Cajón classes can be taken as private one-on-one classes of continuous 40-minute weekly or biweekly classes, or as a 60-minute one-on-one single workshop.
– Classes can be taken live (in-person) or digitally (via Zoom).
Note that due to the corona pandemic, classes might (temporarily) be held digitally if the situation demands it.
– You can start (bi)weekly classes at any moment during the teaching season (September-June), and can quit at any moment (a 1-month notice term applies).
– Classes focus on cajón technique, flamenco cajón rhythms and breaks, and flamenco guitar/singing/dancing accompaniment, and traditional palmas (rhythmic clapping).
Later, you can optionally learn additional percussion instruments like foot pedals, shakers, claves and cymbals.
– There are cajóns in the studio for you to play on during live class, or you can bring your own. For digital classes, you’ll need your own cajón.

Single workshops take place on the same days, but can differ slightly from the above schedule.
If you live outside of the Netherlands and want to take online classes but these times are impossible for you due to international time differences, please mail or call Judy Koot at 00-31-30-2436914 to discuss possible times.
