$35.00

This class in a continuation of the Circular Breathing workshop we did in September. We will focus on finding the timing of circular breathing and establishing good habits and practice with exercises for both on and off the didgeridoo. This includes how to close the gaps between the drone to the circular breath and back to the drone and the art of “masking” the breath for smoother transitions. We also cover some of ways we can get past the mind games circular breathing can play with us so you can build confidence in your playing. Bring your didge because we will be doing a lot of playing.

NOTE: . It’s highly recommended you have either taken the original Circular Breathing workshop or have worked with the basic skills. If you haven’t taken the original Circular Breathing 1 class yet, you can purchase the replay in the Video Replay section.
