Lesson overview

In this lesson, we show you how to maximize your breathing in by the use of your diaphragm. This also allows you to breath in nice and short.

Lesson goals

  • Be able to breathe in correctly using your diaphragm
  • Be able to put enough amount of air in by not moving your chest and shoulders.
  • Be able to combine the squeeze and this breathing technique.
  • Be able to repeat this technique over and over without having to concentrate too much

Training tips

  • You don’t have to rush. This technique is best done slowly and controlled
  • If you are having trouble, go back to the last lesson to get comfortable, then repeat this lesson
  • Forget about how this technique relates to the didgeridoo, this is a breathing exercise
  • Try to resist going to the next step until you find this step easy
  • The fastest way get the circular breathing technique is to practice each step until it’s so easy that it’s boring! Only then go onto the next step
  • You may have to practice 10 times, 100 times or 1000 times. It doesn’t matter how many it takes, it can happen much sooner that you think
  • If you try to learn the circular breathing on the didgeridoo, all your focus goes to making it sound good and you can forget about the technique. This is the long and painful way to learn. Put the didgeridoo down, practice our way and you will be circular breathing very soon
