ONLINE WORKSHOPS

Many thanks to all of you who have signed up for the workshops in 2021. You have made these workshops so much fun and I am grateful to each one of you for coming, learning and laughing with us. I am putting these workshops on hiatus for a bit to allow myself some creative time but I will see you in the new year. Until then, take care, stay safe and well and remember to dust your didge off from time to time and play.

Thank you so much for a great year!

All workshops and lessons are conducted online through Zoom and will be recorded and available for later viewing for participants.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THOSE RESIDING OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. - Please note the times are for Pacific Standard Time in the U.S. Check your local time for the correct time in your area.

Circular breathing doesn't need to be hard. In fact is a simple process that allows us to do the seemingly impossible - keep the drone on our didegridoos going for extended periods of time. 

In this workshop we explore circular breathing basics taking a step-by-step approach, what to do when you get stuck and setting up great practice habits so you can build your circular breathing skills with success. There are also several exercises that you can play along and practice with.

In this class we explore using vocals, breath, dynamics, gentle rhythms and more to create an intimate space that can promote healing of mind, body and spirit. Some of the things we cover in this video are singing through didgeridoo to create harmonies, playing softly, and practice techniques that you can work with to create a more calm space in your day with your didgeridoo.

 

This class covers seven different unique rhythms each with their own character ranging from easy to challenging. We break each rhythm down and explore its components and the different ways we can play each one using vocals, dynamics, speed and more. Bring a didgeridoo because you’ll be doing lots of playing on this one!

Learn some fun and creative ways you can use vocals to create brilliant sounds. In this fun and informative class we cover everything from bird calls to singing through your didgeridoo to using your diaphragm effectively. We also cover how to use vocals in a song to add color and character.
