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 Papa Mumma Technique is a contemporary great technique that will add more dynamics to your didgeridoo rhythms.

Lesson goals

  • Be able to produce 2 opposite rhythmic sounds
  • Create a rhythm using the 2 sounds “Pa” and “Ma”

Training tips

  • First, just basically say the words Pa and Ma while popping your lips in and out. Pa – out, Ma – in.
  • Practice repeating popping your lips in and out in a faster way without the didgeridoo.
  • Once you created the right sound, try to pop your lips on a didgeridoo and produce the Pa and Ma sounds.
  • To produce the higher pitch of the “Ma” sound, just imagine having a lipstick and popping your lips while sucking the air in
  • Try making 2 “Pa” sounds first, then 2 “Ma” sounds.
  • Keep practicing and feel free to make some variations to produce a rhythm.
