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 how to play the famous Australian kangaroo. As well as sounding great, this technique is excellent practice to get confident at starting your drone

Lesson goals

  • Mime the kangaroo hopping “doi-ing… doi-ing… doing” while maintaining a clear drone
  • Play the baby joey by doing this technique fast
  • Having a clear and sharp start to the “doi-ing”
  • Be able to play 10 “doi-ings” on one breath

Training tips

  • The letter “D” actually stops the air coming out briefly. It can be difficult to make the drone start each time this happens. Stick with it, we know it can be frustrating, but it will get easier soon
  • 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
  • The clearer your drone sounds, the better you will hear the kangaroo hopping

    Sanshi–what type of didge and what key didge do you use for these lessons?

  • Meemai

    Keep having trouble with making the movement, my lips just stop vibrating when trying to do this particular sound.

    Had the same problem sometimes with the Ka Ka Ka (dog barking and the Kookaburra I think it was.
