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

The drop jaw technique allows you to lower the pitch of your drone. It is a great effect that will add more dynamics to your didgeridoo rhythms

Lesson goals

  • Be able to lower the pitch of your drone by dropping your jaw and loosening your lips
  • Add this technique into your favorite rhythms

Training tips

  • At first, drop your jaw and loosen your lips all the way until the drone stops. Try to get it as low as possible
  • The sound quality is not important when beginning to practice this technique
  • If you play the didgeridoo to the side of your lips, try this technique front-on at first as it may be easier to begin with
  • The backpressure of your didgeridoo will affect how easy this technique is to do. Didgeridoos with higher backpressure allow you to produce a bigger drop in the drone
