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

Subtle changes in the movement of your tongue leads to new and interesting sounds. In this lesson we explore retroflexed tonguing, a new tongue movement to add to your repertoire

Lesson goals

  • Become confident with the retroflexed tongue movement
  • Notice the different harmonics generated by this tongue movement

Training tips

  • Keep a gentle, consistent and clear drone when practicing this technique
  • While playing the drone, start by putting the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth
  • Keep your tongue touching the roof of your mouth and slowly move the tip of your tongue backwards along your pallet, keeping contact with the roof of your mouth
  • Listen for subtle sound changes in the harmonics and focus on the areas that make the most noticeable sound changes
  • Having your tongue touching the roof of your mouth, forces the air to split in two paths to go either side of your tongue, resulting in the new harmonic sounds
  • Alternate between this new retroflexed tonguing technique and the wee-or-wee-or technique to distinguish the two different sounds
