HEAR WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY :
I have taken two group courses with Didge Project, and both of them were fantastic, inspiring and uplifting. AJ and the Didge Project team are wonderful teachers, great people to be around, and their teaching style is very diverse. The didgeridoo is the first instrument I really enjoy playing because it is so profoundly basic and yet engages you physically and spiritually in complex and fascinating ways. I was actually surprised how quickly I could learn to make sounds and rhythms. The classes are clearly structured and methodical, lots of hands-on practice and personal guidance. I am now playing didge in yoga classes and people absolutely love the experience of its healing earth vibrations. I highly recommend any group classes or private sessions with Didge Project, please check it out and embark on a journey into peaceful sound!
– Nora Heilmann, Jivamukti Yoga teacher NYC
I’m into healthy lifestyle. I like to meditate and do other practices to help my health. That’s why playing the didgeridoo for sleep apnea is a wonderful thing for a person like me. It incorporates my interest in musicianship and world cultures. I thought it was going to be difficult but it really isn’t… I would really encourage you. It can change your life.
– Cathy, Actress, Singer and Artist
