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

This exercise is an extension of the last lesson. It will bend and mould your face muscles into different shapes. This will produce new didgeridoo sounds

Lesson goals

  • Clearly hear the sound changes when miming the English vowels “a… e… i… o… u…”
  • Keep your cheeks in tight to get the sharpest sound
  • Be able to play all 5 vowels slowly on one breath

Training tips

  • Keeping your cheeks in tight and close by using the Mona Lisa smile technique will make a huge difference in the clarity of this technique
  • Practice makes perfect. Keep practicing this for hours, days, weeks, months… it will be worth it!
  • The clearer your drone sounds, the better you will hear the tongue movements
  • Stay gentle. The better it sounds, the less air you will be using
  • Exaggerate the pronunciation of the vowels to increase the sound variation

    I was having issues getting the “E” sound, it sounded like there’s too much air coming out with the sound. I did find that the Mona Lisa smile helps but now I have the issue of air coming out of the sides of my mouth. Is the bees was not adjusted properly or am I smiling too much? Please help!!
