The feedback we’ve had from our beta testers so far has been amazing, check it out:
“Sanshi, What can I say, You guys have taken Didgeridoo Learning to a whole new level, congrats well worth the wait, the videos and content are perfect. Very rare to find people with the talent and dedication to helping others. Keep up the great work, as I am sure it is very much appreciated by all. I rate it 10/10.”
“The material at Didgeridoo Dojo is awesome. Just the beginner level stuff is enough to keep a newer person busy for many months, and it will make them sound like a pro.”
“Love the rhythms section… thanks :-)))))”
“The preview lessons available on Didgeridoo Dojo are great – very clear, easy to follow and just the right length. And, of course, Sanshi is such a great character that he makes them all fun to watch. I wish this had been available when I first started learning, but it’s never too late to review some good lessons. I can’t wait to see more!”

A huge thank you to everyone who signed up to be a Didgeridoo Dojo test subject.
We were wondering if we’d actually get 25 people to sign up for the testing phase and we’ve had nearly 300 people apply! Better than we could have ever imagined!
We’re still a couple of weeks away from being ready to unleash the site on our randomly selected testing group of 25 people. We’ll keep you up to date via email, the blog and our Facebook page with new developments so make sure you check in regularly.
What is Didgeridoo Dojo?

We’re also putting the finishing touches on the new Didge Dojo logo and would love to know what you think of it.
We’ll be releasing a sample of the Didge Dojo stuff over the next few weeks so look out for that too!
I am introducing indigenous culture through aboriginal story-telling, art and music to teachers as part of Korean Ministry of Education English In-service Training.
I have just purchased one of your plastic didges to do some demo work with the teachers and was wondering if you could suggest appropriate didge music (not techno version) for my trainees. As I am sure they will be interested in my recommendation.
As far as story telling goes I love Ash Dargans Territory http://www.didgeridoobreath.com/product_p/cd-310.htm Ash is an Aboriginal Didgeridoo player and this CD tells 13 different stories from the Northern Territory. Each little story has a short description on the inside cover to help set the scene for the listener. I love it. It does have other instruments playing, all played by ash, a little percussion and flute, but the Didgeridoo is by far the dominant instrument, a wonderful album. You can hear the crocodile, see through the eye of the eagle, tread carefully around sacred ground and much more.
The other choice which is solo Didgeridoo without any other instruments is the Ash Dirt and Dust album. Not telling any distinct story but powerful raw didgeridoo playing, this is a very popular album for anybody chasing just the range of amazing sounds of the Didgeridoo. http://www.didgeridoobreath.com/product_p/cd-ashdustdirt.htm ‘
You can certainly raise the pitch of a didgeridoo and you are absolutely right in shortening the instrument. You can cut small slices (make sure its off the mouthpiece end), playing the didge in between each cut to check the key. You won’t need to take much off. Maybe start in half or 1cm slices. If it goes a little high, that will be ok as you can build the mouthpiece back up with beeswax. The most important thing though, is cutting the end off will make it more susceptible to cracking. Make sure you seal the exposed timber end well with a glue or varnish to stop any moisture leaking in or out.
