Does the didgeridoo fascinate you? Have you ever wanted to learn to play? No’s your chance.
Most of you love the sound of the didgeridoo but have never had the opportunity to learn how to play this wonderful instrument……well now’s your chance ! I’ve been playing this instrument for over 25 years and teaching it at festivals and in schools for about 15 years so come and join me and I’ll break it down into small easy to learn steps.
I will be starting with the very basic drone techniques working with bending the note higher and lower. Then teaching you how to use vocal calls that are used for animal sounds within the Australian outback and finishing with making the mysterious Circular breathing which allows players to keep rhythms flowing indefinitely easy to understand and achievable.
For all of you that can already play there will be plenty of opportunity for some expert tips whether it be help with building rhythms, improving vocals or the breathing techniques that are the structural points of all styles of play that you hear from famous didgeridoo players.
Within all of this I will be touching on a little information on aboriginal Australian culture.
And don’t forget tyhat Tall Paul is also performing at the URC at 10.45 – 11.15am in the nave.
