Some Important Notes about Learning to Play…

Before we start playing, let’s break down some myths. You may have heard people say…

Myth: You can’t play unless you can circular breathe.
Well actually on one breath you can play many sounds on the didgeridoo.

Myth: You need massive lungs to play the didgeridoo, I just don’t have enough puff.
Playing the didgeridoo is about a controlled release of a small amount of air, only possible when you are relaxed and playing gently.

Myth: I’m too old to play the didgeridoo.
There are people from 3 years old (maybe even younger) to 93 years old (maybe even older) around the world learning and playing the didgeridoo right now!

Myth: It looks far too difficult for me.
The didgeridoo requires no “musical ability” and with only a very small amount of practice you can sound fantastic.

Playing Position

Posture is important when playing your didgeridoo. It is best to be comfortable and in an upright position.

The sound you hear when playing the didgeridoo is far different from the sound that everyone else hears when they listen to you. Most of the sound you hear is the dull vibration in your head… a bit like talking with your ears blocked. To help hear more clearly while you practice, find a spot in your home with the best acoustics (the bathroom is excellent!!!). Also try playing with the didgeridoo up against a wall or hard surface so the sound bounces straight back to you.
