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

There is a big difference between a fuzzy, messy drone and a crisp, sharp, well played drone. We show you one of the greatest tricks to make your drone sound amazing. Getting a clear drone will make everything else you play on the didgeridoo sound so much better.

Lesson goals

  • Play with the Mona Lisa smile to get a sharper sound
  • Know the point where your lips are too tight to play the drone
  • Focus on playing just under this “too tight” point
  • Be able to play for over 10 seconds on one breath

Training tips

  • It’s good to make your smile too tight so the sound goes bad. You will get to know what works and what doesn’t
  • It’s the point just before you lose the drone that will sound the best
  • The better your drone sounds, the less air you will be using
  • Focus on the sound quality, not blowing air
  • Your drone will keep improving over the coming days, weeks, months, years. So keep this technique in mind and practice it every time you play
