DIDGERIDOO PLAYING WORKSHOP WITH ONDREJ SMEYKAL

Ondrej Smeykal of the Czech Republic is known as an innovator and master technician with the didgeridoo, and is perhaps the most influential didgeridoo player in the world over the past five years. We are very fortunate to have Ondrej here in Melbourne; this is an opportunity to learn a whole new style of playing and is not to be missed!

Drawing from his own experience of more than 20 years of practice, Ondrej will explain the basis behind his amazing techniques and examine rhythm construction, composition structure and the extension of the sound range.

This workshop is designed to deepen the individual’s creative approach to playing the didgeridoo and will reflect the particular needs of each participant.

We are also going to look at various kinds of bad habits which can block individual development.

The course is not focused on any particular player’s level; all didgeridoo players including complete beginners are welcome. Note, however, there will not be time to focus on circular breath education.

Start: April 4, 2015 1:00 pm
End: April 4, 2015 5:00 pm
