PlayCajon Version 2.0

On Friday I was proud to launch version 2.0 of my cajon lesson website PlayCajon. It was the culmination of 6 months work on the re-design. We shot 20 new video lessons for a beginner course featuring Sela Cajons which now takes the over all quality of lessons along with the look and feel of the site to the next level.

The new lessons were all shot in a professional studio with the best audio and camera equipment. I really wanted to get the best possible sound and look with the new lessons and now we have that, we can move forward with each new lesson looking amazing.

PlayCajon now features three courses, a beginner course, an intermediate course, and an advanced course. Each course features 20 video lessons and are carefully constructed to advance you easily through your learning. Along with the courses, the site has new categories which organize the lessons in a way that makes it easy for you to quickly find the lesson you want.

The pricing on PlayCajon has stayed the same but now you also have the option to buy the individual courses if you wish.

The look and feel of the site now has a simple design that is easy to navigate and pleasing to the eye.

I can’t tell you how proud I am of PlayCajon. It really has taken an immense amount of work and devotion to bring it to the world and I will continue to strive to make it even better.

Build Your Groove: Win a Sela Snare Cajon Kit

I am delighted to announce the first ever #buildyourgroove competition where I am giving away a Snare Cajon Kit by Sela, a pair of Vater Cajon Brushes and a 1 year subscription to playcajon.org to the winner. I will also be giving prizes to the 2nd and 3rd place entries.

All you have to do is submit a photo or video that depicts building a groove in someway.

In a photograph or video (no longer than 3 minuets) I want you to #buildyourgroove. It could be as simple as just a cracking photo or video of you or someone else playing an instrument. Maybe you are actually building your own drum or musical instrument in the photo/video or maybe you are building a groove by making a creatively edited YouTube video, maybe it is just a great photo of someone playing a groove. Whatever your interpretation of the phrase “Build Your Groove” is, I can’t wait to see your entries.

The #buildyourgroove competition runs through November 2013 and I will be announcing a winner along with 2nd and 3rd place runners up on December 1st.
