I often tell my students that I don't teach (only) technics but I try to convey an experience. The fundamental difference and uniqueness of the proposed course can be summarized in these few words. I firmly believe that music should be the means by which to become interpreters of themselves. The cornerstone of teaching is represented by the basics and the principles. The basics are the reference of thought, meaning we attribute to man first of all, with its centrality to his emotions and what he looks through the instrument and music: his research. One is not summarized in these few lines. The principles are four: attention focused on himself, correct relationship with the body, the breath and the rhythm. 

To develop these themes I have set up a package of 5 intensive, renewable 1 hour lessons for both beginners and advanced. Since it is not aimed strictly at efficiency, nor exclusively at the virtuosic mastery of one or more techniques, but rather at the deepening of a complete psycho/physical and musical experience, I suggest my students renew the course or continue to follow it with individual lessons also when a cycle is finished.

Musical didjeridoo compared with piano

This is not exactly a tutorial, I don't explain specific techniques, i realized this video for different reasons:

1) To show how the didjeridoo, a musical instrument which is wrongly considered as a monotonal instrument, can fully express as much as any other instrument according to the principles of harmony, melody and rhythm;

2) To show how, apart from the various drone transcendence techniques (such as staccato, air-code etc...), it is possible to obtain both harmonic and melodic variations;

3) To translate the various techniques used with the didjeridoo in the classical music language, in order to make clear what we are playing in comparison to any other musical instrument.

I'd also like to debunk some clich├ęs and wrong conclusions, which are often and improperly used by didjeridoo players, one of which is that the toots are higher overtones...
