Jeff from USA >05 min "I have wanted to play the didgeridoo for the longest time, and when I learned that circular breathing isn't about breathing in and out at the same time, but storing air in your cheeks, I immediately started researching the instrument and began playing. After first circular breathing into the didgeridoo I felt like I could master this instrument, although I am still not very good at circular breathing for long periods of time, the instrument is fun to use, making it easy to learn for me."
