What inspired you to learn the didj?

Adam Diiulio from USA

I think the first I ever heard one was actually on an episode of nickelodeon's The Wild Thornberries many years ago. I was fascinated by the sound but didn't really know anything about it or where to get one. I had always talked about didjes to my friends and how I wanted to learn. One day my friend came home from a trip to Oregon, USA with a gift for me. It was a didj he found at some random shop! I think it only took me about a week or so to get an initial drone down and not too long after that I was circular breathing. Which I later learned is a very short time span to learn how to play.

Adam from USA

I play the bagpipes, and have great interest in playing other culturally unique instruments

Adam from USA

Just hearing it in movies was enough to seek it out.


I had been amazed by the images and stories of Aborigines that had a very special place in my heart since I can remember and a fleeting spark when I saw a flyer at the Conservatory I was studying at at the time.

Ales from Czech Republic

Feeling over past few years, that didj is the right thing for me.

Alex from USA

My best friend convinced me to make and learn to play my own didgeridoo. I took his advice and we eventually played together on a frequent basis.

My first exposure to the didgeridoo was by seeing David Hudson play with Yanni. After that I wanted to learn more, and that desire to learn more inspired me to want to learn.

Eleanor Hjemmet from USA

It calls me. I first heard one played live in a Celtic-fusion band, Seven Nations, and was blown away. That didge was PVC pipe. Also, for several years I have been exploring healing with vibration, along the lines of Royal Raymond Rife's research, and have built an experimental frequency device that has had some remarkable results. I mainly want to use my didge for meditation and healing.

Eric from USA

Love the culture

Eric from USA

Healing, meditation and breathing. I find it very grounding and meditative to play.

Sleep apnea first and then it was my first didge, a plastic one that I found that playing made me feel calm and listening to music from others put me into a calm world apart from the rat race.

Hamish from New Zealand

A friend picked one up at a party and it just blew me away, I knew I had to learn it.

Harmony from USA

I had a dream of an Aboriginal ancestor playing the didgeridoo. His intention in playing the didgeridoo was healing, not just for me, but myself as a healer of others as well. In the beginning of my dream, I used intellect to address a woman hitting her child. I then realized I needed to stop lecturing her and to just deep listen. As we entered her home, the Aborigine sat on the woman's kitchen table playing the didgeridoo. He understood me to my core--my strengths and weaknesses. As he played, I understood to let go of my intellect and to flow with the innermost need of the woman. I lifted her on my back and proceeded to walk around the kitchen table in a counterclockwise direction. As I walked with her on my back, I went into a trance like state--connecting/synergizing with her inner vibrations--my inner vibrations healing hers. I was healing in the process as I gained awareness of how to heal. The sound of the didgeridoo penetrated the depths of my inner core. I never saw a didgeridoo. I had heard the sound before from the show Survivor. Curious, I went on-line to do research on the didgeridoo. I have to admit, I remain deeply surprised to see that the didgeridoo is the same shape that the Aborigine was playing in my dream. Dreams are very powerful if we listen carefully. The didj is somehow connected to my healing and the healing of others. I also feel a deep calling to learn about Aboriginal People, their spirituality, and way of living from the past, present and future. I have faith that what is meant will unfold as it is meant to be. I will wait patiently as I listen to the messages given to me.

Héctor Raúl from Argentina

Actualmente toco quenas, moxeños, zampoñas, varios aerófonos andinos, y me gustaría incluir en este universo de instrumentos al didgeridoo...

Herb Cohen from USA

I Practice and teach meditation and run drumming circles. A didge would compliment these practices.

Howard Williamson from USA

My wife knew a male nurse who plays quite a lot in our area - we ran into him at a local bookstore and she asked him to show me his didge. We went outside under the entrance canopy and he gave us about a 15 minute introduction. I loved it. I have participated in the annual Seattle Folklife Festival watching and playing with a large group - probably at that time we could have set a world record for the greatest number of didges playing at the same time - had we had an official counter. I'd guess we had between 300 and 350 but this was about 10 years ago so I'm sure there have been larger groups since them. I have made ABS didges for several friends and we used to get together and play them on the large sunning lawn of a local club.

Iain from United Kingdom

Ever since I was young I have loved the sound - by chance, a school student introduced me to a player who got me started on plastic pipes. My in laws discovered retailer mentioned above, I bought my first real didge from them, had first lesson via a contact of the retailer, met other players, formed friendships, joined a club, discovered the huge internet community, went to didge festivals and so on - and how my life has changed!!

Dr. Didg

Jerome from France

I simply like the sound of it and am very interested in music of any type. The didj has however something unique. It can only produce one tune (2 with the hoot) but you can do so much incredible things with it if you have only a didgeridoo, a mouth and some patience to learn!!!


My desire to complement meditation practice and use a natural instrument

Anonymous from USA

It is part of a lecture I give to sleep professionals and patients and general public would like to learn to play and use a didgeridoos in my lectures. I am also a Chiropractor and I am interested in the healing properties and would like more information about this aspect.

Jon Griffin from Canada

Because it was different, and as I stated above, intrigued by the harmonics... the paint designs are cool too. I'm a very spiritual person and I think of the didj as an earthy - primitive - soulful instrument

Jonathan from USA

Respect for other cultures and meditative purposes.

Jonathan Zamora Ríos from Costa Rica

Un grupo de música étnica de mi país llamado: Amoun Sulu, que utiliza el didge como uno de sus principales recursos.

My girlfriend's brother plays. he got me into it. I used to be a trombonist, so I had the lip for it. The web and the didjshop site got me utterly hooked.


AUSTRALIA, we did the whole east coast, Ayers rock, Katatjuta national park and Kings canyon. I love it!!!

Jussi from Finland

My friend in Finland had a didgeridoo, which he played in an Eurovision song contest 1998 with a band. I thought it sounded great. Later I had a chance to live and work in Australia, but I never wanted to buy a didgeridoo without being involved in making it. So I waited until my Yolgnu wawa showed me how to make it. He also painted one for me. Since then I've kept finding and making didgeridoos by myself as a collection - not for sale.


My love for Australia.

Kat from USA

It's a cool instrument. I like using different world instruments in my choral concerts.


A friend who carried his everywhere with him and played for anyone who asked.

Anonymous from USA

Developing Sleep Apnea as a secondary diagnosis to Narcolepsy. Didj playing (IMO, the CB) is supposed to help. Then I started actually enjoying playing. Now if I can get my toddler to quit trying to play horsie on my didj when I practice, I might be able to improve.

I saw it played in a TV and the voice just stuck in my head and I had to get my own and practice playing it.

Anonymous from USA

I travel the world a great deal and my wife and I try to add unique ethnic folk instruments to our growing collection. I played trombone, my sons play trumpet and tenor sax, and we enjoyed making the transition to playing the didj together as a family. The didj remains one of the most unique in terms of playing versatility, interest from listeners, and simple beauty and fun. My wife teaches high-school music and directs a professional city choir. She seeks every opportunity to use these instruments, especially the didj, in a wide range of traditional and modern choral and instrumental works.

Marty from Australia

I am a Conga player/ percussionist and the sounds and rhythms of the didj inspired me to get into it, find my own sound and incorporate it in my musical journey. Of course, now I barely touch anything but my didjes!!

Marvin from USA

The culture and the meditative feeling when playing

Matt from Canada

I heard a fellow playing one during a festival and thought it would be fun. Then the task of circle breathing came and it became more of a challenge. I bought a bamboo didge and began practicing. The bamboo does aright, but I wish I could afford a eucalyptus didj.

Matthew from USA

My father bought one from your site, and I thought the sound was amazing. I live by myself and don't have television or internet and I needed something to challenge myself.

I have always liked the sound of the Didge ever since I was a young kid and I finally purchased my first didge september last year and started to;earn from a local didge teacher in melbourne.

Rodney Webb from Australia

Watching Michael Conolly play at the Brisbane markets; brings tears to the eyes. I bought the one he uses for demonstrations; what a beautiful bass sound. Michael Conolly is an Aborigine, who boxed in tents, drove trucks, and knows the history of his own race - a wonderful guy. He has a shop at Eumundi, Sunshine Coast, QLD.

Rodrigo Del Castillo Negrete from Mexico

Sincerely it was on a friends house when I first heard the sound in person, and it simply arose a feeling of true uneasiness and a mysterious touching vibe. Later that day I tried playing it and asked on a brief tutorial on circular breathing, he told me to practice with a bottle and a straw, I tried all sort of techniques even with a blow dart, and when the week finished I could do the circular breathing. I first played on my right hand side of the lips and then realised that if I played on the left hand side I could play more easily and with my tongue. And on the second week I bought my bamboo Didgeridoo, and will never forget the first blow I gave to it and the sound that arose from it.

Anonymous from USA

A friend of mine was blowing on a piece of pipe and it sounded like a didgeridoo. I made a PVC didge and was hooked ever since.

Roi Redondo García from Spain

Buff, I knew it by Christopher of the Wolves, in Kovenhavn at summer of 99, I play pipe with him, with/because of a juggler, and ear this fantastic sound by first time. I could see whales by his music. few years ago a friend get one, and I start too. mother earth is the inspiration

Rolf Hebenstreit from USA

I was on a secluded beach on the island of Maui, Hawaii. An Aussie couple started to play didjes as the sun was setting & the whales where jumping out of the ocean! The sound went straight to my soul...... They told me how to make one from PVC pipe & I never looked back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous from Canada

I really love the sound and feel of playing and will keep practicing.

Anonymous from Canada

This happens to be the same answer I gave above. So I'll paste it here as well.: I was always drawn to the sound of the Didj, even before I knew what I was hearing (movie soundtracks etc). I also kept seeing references to the benefits of the Circular Breathing technique for coping with Anxiety. The combination of being perplexed by the sound and the challenge and potential benefits of learning CB were powerful motivators for me. Also I was going through a major song writer's cramp and complete lack of desire to play the Guitar, which had been a major passion for me for over 30 years. The Didj challenged me and gave me a whole new way to express my musicality. Without a doubt, doing CB for 20 or 30 minutes has a very balancing effect on the Human Organism, almost Adaptogenic in nature. And, of course, it's a lot of fun!


I can circular breathe, and do practice regularly, but I'm not sure how "good" I am, thus the above answer is not entirely correct. I have severe sleep apnea. The British Medical Journal, PubMed, Science Daily, ABC News, Discovery and Men's Health magazines, as well as the Apnea Support Forum have articles reviewing the health benefits that playing a didgeridoo can offer those suffering with sleep apnea and snoring. Quote from Reuters: "Regular didgeridoo playing reduces snoring and daytime sleepiness, finds a study published by the British Medical Journal. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome are common sleep disorders caused by the collapse of the upper airways. Reports of didgeridoo players experiencing reduced daytime sleepiness and snoring after practicing, led experts in Switzerland to test the theory that training of the upper airways by didgeridoo playing can improve these disorders. They identified 25 patients with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and who complained about snoring. Patients were randomly allocated to an intervention group (didgeridoo lessons and daily practice at home for four months) or a control group (remained on a waiting list for lessons). Compared with the control group, daytime sleepiness and apnea scores improved significantly in the didgeridoo group. Partners of patients in the didgeridoo group also reported much less sleep disturbance. The authors conclude that regular training of the upper airways by didgeridoo playing reduces daytime sleepiness and snoring in people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and also improves the sleep quality of partners".

Roy Páramo from Spain

I fell in love with it the first time I saw a guy playing it in a music festival. I started to look for info and learnt by myself

Savannah Clark from United Kingdom

I regularly go to the Glastonbury Festival, and I've wanted to learn how to play since I saw Rolf Harris playing his there when I was 6.

I think the sound is very fascinating. It feels "magical". I can't play them but would like to.

Sean from USA

Breathing patterns as a way to ecstacy One of the reasons I began taking yoga was to learn pranayama techniques to be a better didj player.

Sean Macconnell from Canada

My mother forced me to choose an instrument to pursue, and I selected the Didgeridoo.

Anonymous from France

First I'm very interested by the "lifestyle" of aboriginal people, a lot of respect for their culture and traditions and to play didj gives good vibrations, that's why I play didj only when I feel good and inspired.

Shane from Malaysia

I was in need of healing and there was something about the frequency of the didj that made me believe that this instrument would help me in healing myself and indeed it did.


My daughter will be studying in Australia this summer and while researching Australia we are beginning to learn about the didj. We love music of all sorts in my home and the children play piano, sax, trombone, bag pipes, flute, violin. Both of the my children can't wait for our didj to arrive.

Its cosmic sound! And its ritual use in Aboriginal culture, which amplified for me the power of the Didgeridoo sound.

I've always been fascinated by the haunting sounds and rhythms but never tried to play until I began to do educational programs about the aboriginal culture for my job. That required me to learn to play the didge.
