Bruce Rogers is a didgeridoo maker, performer and teacher.

He is regarded as one of the best in Australia.


Born in Brisbane in 1964, he grew up in Melbourne where he trained and worked as a civil engineer.
Bruce began playing didgeridoo in 1985 and has performed throughout Australia, including Melbourne’s National Theatre and the world famous Sydney Opera House. He has also made numerous tours of Europe, performing in concert and conducting workshops.


Bruce began teaching Didgeridoo in 1990; known for his concise and entertaining method, he has been a featured presenter at many music festivals. His performance work covers a broad range of styles, including folk, ambient, pop, jazz, classical, and world music.
Since 1994, Bruce has worked full-time as a didgeridoo maker, and it is for his beautifully crafted instruments that he is awarded the highest respect. Having made his first didgeridoos in 1992, he has gained a reputation for making rich and clear sounding instruments, which are suitable for both experts and beginners alike. These days, his didgeridoos are highly sought after in Australia and around the world.
Bruce’s aim is to bridge the gap between past and present, by promoting the Didgeridoo as an instrument for all ages, cultures and people.

For two decades now the didgeridoo has been the focus of my life. I’ve learnt so much, yet there is still much to learn. When I started playing didgeridoo back in 1985 it was the pure sound that mesmerized me; the beautiful, subtle, hypnotic, complex sound. It reached out and encompassed me, and it still does.


A white man and the didgeridoo — a note to the indigenous people of Australia.

Bruce has always been aware that his country first belonged to the Aboriginal people. He has the utmost respect for this and for the culture that has arisen from over 60,000 years of occupation and care for the land now known as Australia. Bruce believes there are many lessons Europeans can learn from Aboriginal people relating to our spirituality and role as custodians of the environment.

Bruce’s interest in Aboriginal culture began at high school before he picked up the didgeridoo, and culminated in a two year journey around Australia. His first didges were made with the encouragement of the Wirigerie people of Far North Queensland.

Bruce sees the didgeridoo as an important traditional instrument having a diverse role in Aboriginal culture and a separate role in contemporary Australian music and World music.
