Didgeridoo lessons for children and adults and how to be in harmony with the instrument

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Experienced didgeridoo player to teach how to play the instrument. I offer classes at my home or at the student's home, or in the open air if the weather is nice. I can teach you basics, advanced techniques, and structures to play well. I also have a lot of exercises to work specific muscles.

Getting to make the sound is the first step. The basic sound, the drone is not obtained only by blowing in the instrument but by squeezing the lips slightly by letting them vibrate. Then there are 3 types of breaths to master. From a type of circular breathing already the game can become richer because the sound is continuously ....

The course lasts + - 1h15. If you have a didgeridoo so much the better. I also make very simple didgeridoos (in PVC) which I sell for € 6 and it is ideal for those who are still in the early stages of learning this instrument.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am a singer and composer of songs and music. In 2012, I discovered the didgeridoo which I am passionate about. I gradually learned other percussion instruments such as the shamanic drum, the gong, the jaw harp, the xylophone and string instrument such as the Irish bouzouki, the guitar, the bass guitar, the erhu, the shruti box .
The didgeridoo is a wind instrument, among the oldest that mankind has played. Its sound is spellbinding and penetrates the listener with its bass sounds, throughout the body. Mike considers himself a modern didgeridoo player specializing in solo or meditative play, and how to properly amplify it properly to get the most out of his sound.
In the lessons I give, I try to explain using simple language that everyone can understand.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been playing music since 2003 when I started with bass guitar. Since July 2019 I devote myself only to music and the mastery of several instruments and compositions.
Graduated in secretarial work, I worked as an administrative assistant for the European Commission. I studied at the European School of Uccle in English

Experience / Qualifications

Learn Didgeridoo with SKYPE / MESSENGER / ZOOM ...
Learn Didgeridoo far from everything ... it's possible! You can learn the didgeridoo at home now via SKYPE and FACEBOOK Messenger now! And yes, the internet does incredible things today. You can take live lessons around the world with SKYPE, Messenger or all types of APP allowing you to make video live ... which means that we can shorten distances on a planetary scale ... magic no ?! Raphaël invites you to take didgeridoo lessons with him directly with your computer equipped with a camera and a microphone, a smartphone or a tablet ... and you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rendering and the proximity that can bring between you and Raphaël with this kind of exercise which could easily become a reflex in case of technical blocking on your instrument… a good reason to get a real answer with a real solution… and at the right time! “The time of a lesson is very important! " The course time is 40 minutes because it allows you to enter the right information and the right message. The first five minutes will allow you to assess your level of play with Raphaël. Then you will get to the heart of the matter by directly learning a sound, respiratory or rhythmic technique depending on your level of progression ... "It is your rigor and love of the instrument that will help you progress!" " The first thing to do during or after the course is to take note of the advice Raphaël gave you because the method he developed can only help you move forward if you follow a minimum of advice. This does not mean that you will have to become a silly and nasty machine, but on the contrary, you will have to work on the practice of your instrument to develop greater sensitivity and openness on your Didgeridoo and yourself. This will make you realize your strengths and your weaknesses. The goal is to raise your awareness even more when you play. The body in which you are is a magic laboratory just waiting to be discovered and explored ... so follow your instinct with a minimum of tools and everything will be fine! As you understand, each course is different because it will bring you to a greater openness of play and spirit ... with the help of albums in MP3 that I will send you by Wetransfer to support you, you can also develop listening to other players' games. This is part of the decoding phase of the musical dialect throughout your personalized lessons.

Mastery in Didgeridoo (Beginners to Advanced) and Circular-Breathing Lessons
Aloha. The Sacred Sound of the ultra-ancient Didgeridoo, is a profoundly powerful experience to be able to play, share, and grow from. My name is Michael, and in 1988 at barely age 18, I was fortunate to spend a great deal of time with Aboriginal Elders deep in the Australian outback. I was initiated into the 'DreamTime', and have been a Didj player, healer, Sound Journeyer, and teacher of the Didgeridoo ever since. I have played the Didgeridoo onstage live globally, and have given Didgeridoo concerts to the likes of Jimmy Page, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, and have opened for Michael Franti and Spearhead, among other international EDM festivals, and events. I have studied the Didgeridoo and sacred sound for decades, as well as the healing and wellness-enhancing properties of playing and long-term Circular-Breathing, the art of continually exhaling through the lips while playing a wind instrument. Mastery in Didgeridoo is for Everyone and anyone who desires to learn something different while having a personal tool for meditation, mind clearing, having fun, and sharing with others. From Beginners to avid Didgeridoo players, I offer one off classes, as well as Mastery Level 4 week Courses. I will have you playing and circular breathing in no time, and from there the real fun and true playing begins Topics Of Mastery in Didgeridoo Course: *Making a Sound and Didgeridoo Basic Playing Dynamics *Breath Awareness and Body Dynamics of Didgeridoo Playing *Circular-Breathing and Breath Rhythms for Advanced Techniques *Multifaceted and Diverse Sound Creation *Deep Meditation Techniques and Didgeridoo Recording *Live Lessons with proactive follow-up Home Work *Understanding Notes, Keys, and Octaves in Didgeridoo Playing *Playing Didgeridoo with Various Music and Band types I look forward to sharing some of the ancient secrets in the Sound of Didgeridoo Playing and music. This instrument is simple to create and make, and can easily be learned by anyone of any age. The Mastery of the Didgeridoo takes a lifetime and to play it like a Pro I warmly offer you this opportunity to do so in signing up for Lessons and Advanced Programs in Didgeridoo Mastery with me. Mahalo ke Akua and may the Sound Be with You. Aloha Regards, MC
