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 we show you one of the key techniques for building didgeridoo rhythms. This is achieved by making pulses with your diaphragm. The good news is that this is quite an easy technique to do and it sounds fantastic!

Lesson goals

  • Be able to play “ha… ha… ha… ha…” diaphragm pulses while maintaining a clear drone
  • Speed up the “ha… ha…” rhythm to push your limits
  • Aim for maximum lip tension to achieve the sharpest drone
  • Be able to play the “ha… ha… he… he… ho… ho…” rhythm clearly
  • See how many times you can play this rhythm using one breath

Training tips

  • You don’t need to pulse hard, keep your pulses gentle, you will easily hear the sound change
  • When you pulse your diaphragm, adjust your lip tightness to stop loosing too much air
  • Aim for good definition so you can clearly hear the different between “ha”, “he” and “ho”
  • This rhythm sounds awesome played fast. Challenge yourself to see how fast you can play it.
