Today Craig, from Fifth Circle Music Therapy, gave some of our students a lesson on how to play the Didgeridoo!
The didgeridoo is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians. It is made from limbs and tree trunks hollowed out by termites (insects). It produces a low-pitch, vibrating sound with complex rhythmic patterns and was used in tribal groups to accompany chants and songs.
Craig is a musician/performer with 20+ years experience in song writing, live performance, recording, session percussion, teaching and mentoring – as well as a passion for assisting and supporting others through music therapy.
He showed the students how to use their mouths to make different sounds through the didgeridoo and also told them a little bit about the culture and background of didgeridoos in Australia.
This was a great authentic Australian activity for the students to enjoy and they all picked it up very quickly!
