What is Didgeridoo Dojo?

Didge Dojo is the Most Comprehensive “How to Play" Resource on the Planet!

We built the Dojo because so many didgeridoo players and beginners struggle because of lack of access to good quality training and in-person lessons.

The goal of Didge Dojo is to provide the closest thing to a one on one experience as possible!

With comprehensive video lessons ranging from beginner techniques like making the drone sound and circular breathing to advanced techniques like didgeridoo beatboxing presented by the hilarious Nathan Kaye, Didgeridoo Dojo has something for everyone!

Lesson overview

Wouldn’t it be great to have an endless supply of didgeridoo rhythms to keep you motivated and inspired? Problem solved! Follow this simple formula and you will be able to create your own long and intricate didgeridoo rhythms using the techniques you already know

Lesson goals

  • Understand the double rhythm concept
  • Be able to play the double rhythm Sanshi demonstrates
  • Create your own double rhythm using your favorite techniques

Training tips

  • Double rhythm is taking a base rhythm, making one small change and adding that new version to the original rhythm, making it twice the length. This forms your new base rhythm
  • Repeat this step to your new base rhythm by making a small change and adding it to the rhythm to form your next new base rhythm. This will be twice as long again
  • Keep repeating for as long as your brain can keep up
  • When creating your own double rhythm, start with something very simple. You only need to make small changes
  • Always include the breath in your rhythm as it is an essential technique to be able to continue playing the rhythm
  • See how many times you can double the length of the rhythm
  • It might help to write the rhythm down on paper so you can remember
