Hi everyone,
We're looking forward to the Digital Seminar for Zeeko that will take place next Tuesday afternoon 25th March, 4-5.15pm. It's a great opportunity to meet Jess from the group to talk about the group's music and and to work through some of the teaching resource material.
You can access the Seminar by going to Step 6 of Zeeko on musicstaffroom.com
You can ask questions via twitter with #tweetching, or feel free to email or phone.
Hope you can join us!
Cheers,
Sue

Hi Sue,
Could you give us more information on where we can purchase a cajon like Jess'?

Thank you
Amanda

Hi Amanda,
Thanks for the question.
Cajons can be purchased from music shops and online. As Jess said at the seminar, they come in different sizes with a number of different features, including levers on the side to adjust the sounds that are created. They're a really useful instrument to have in a classroom as students can make a great sound, very simply demonstrating all the sounds that you would normally hear on several parts of a drum kit. When they're played really well they sound amazing!

You can see the cajon at its best in Zeeko's performance of The Last Wave of the Golden Frog on the Zeeko site on musicstaffroom.com. In Video E the group demonstrates very clearly how the patterns that they play on their cajons layer in. Jess also demonstrates the cajon on What Sound is That? in the Digital Resources.

Maybe students could even try to make a cajon? I hope that this answers your question.
Sue
