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

In this lesson, Koji is going to show us some beat boxing techniques on the didgeridoo.

Lesson goals

  • Be able to produce the rim shot sound on a didgeridoo
  • Create a beat boxing rhythm using the rim shot sound

Training tips

  • Produce the rim shot sound by saying “ka” while inhaling or sucking air into your mouth. Then add a “ssshh” sound together while sucking the air in.
  • Push the pressure between your tongue and your mouth while trying to make the rim shot sound, and try to make it shorter.
  • Try to add the rim shot sound to 2 more phares to make a rhythm. You can try a kick sound (poop) and high hot sound (psst) plus the rim shot sound all together.
  • Zipper sound is also produced by sucking the air and using the Monalisa Smile. Make sure that your lips are vibrating when you make the sound.
  • Try making the zipper sound short just like the rim shot sound.
  • Try putting the zipper sound along with the other beat box sound.
  • Practice repeating the sounds and do any variations of the sounds whichever order you are comfortable.
  • Now try to make the beat box rhythm on a didgeridoo.
  • Keep practicing.
