With an acute musical ear, Stuart understands how the cajon fits in to different musical styles & how to adjust his playing accordingly. So, when he tries any new cajon he always tests different playing intensities (volumes) & techniques to ensure that it performs well in all settings. This means that if you ask him to choose a cajon for your particular musical setting he can find one that fits.
Stuart's playing experience includes acoustic (non-amplified) gigs in shops, pubs, music clubs, acoustic clubs etc) & amplified gigs in pubs, clubs, small concert halls, large concert halls, stadiums. He has also been sound engineer for live bands & shows so understands some of the behind-the-scenes electronics & has recorded, produced & co-produced albums recorded in the studio.

Stuart is renowned for his approachability & ability to explain things in easy-to-understand terms, focussing on making sure that customers have learnt what they wanted/needed rather than just telling them what he knows.
Personal relationships & communication are at the top of Stuart's list of priorities.
