Description of Services

How-to-Play Didgeridoo Workshop 
Darren Liebman's how-to-play didgeridoo workshop is one of the most popular music enrichment programs in the U.S. Educator / entertainer / motivator Darren Liebman has been presenting interactive workshops at schools, childcare centers and other venues since 2003. The featured musical instrument is the mesmerizing didgeridoo - typically a hollow tree trunk - which has been played by Aboriginal Australians for thousands of years. This workshop is a totally interactive and hands-on experience for ages 8 and up. Participants learn how to play the didgeridoo using tubes supplied by Darren. Darren also explains how to make and decorate a "didg" very inexpensively. Participants will be mesmerized, inspired and motivated as they enjoy a one-of-a kind multicultural music experience. The workshop is ideal as an accompaniment or follow-up to the DDU show.

The how-to-play didgeridoo workshop aims to:

  • teach the fundamental concepts of playing the didgeridoo (inc. how to drone and use sound variations such as tonguing and animal calls)
  • demonstrate how to use a cardboard tube or PVC pipe as a didgeridoo
  • further appreciation of Aboriginal music and indigenous art
  • promote multicultural harmony and environmental protection
  • ignite excitement about exploring and creating
  • encourage kindness and respect toward all living beings 

Darren teaches how to play the didgeridoo with demonstrations, both for the group and then for individuals who might need extra assistance. There is constant interaction and communication between the presenter and the participants. 

Progress indicators include droning and duplicating any of the sounds or rhythms taught during the class. Other indicators are self-motivated sound and rhythm experimentation, along with thoughtful dialogue.

Throughout the workshop, Darren listens to everyone playing the didgeridoo, both individually and as a group. Darren also uses Q & A and audience feedback as assessment methods.

Didgeridoo Down Under is one of the most popular cultural enrichment programs in the U.S. Educator / entertainer / motivator Darren Liebman has been performing high-energy, interactive shows at schools, childcare centers and other venues since 2002. The featured musical instrument is the mesmerizing didgeridoo - typically a hollow tree trunk - which has been played by Aboriginal Australians for thousands of years. But DDU is much more than music; it's educational, motivational and super fun! This one-of-a-kind, Australia-themed show combines high-energy music, art, social studies, science, character building, comedy, and audience participation. Darren uses musical instruments, maps, puppets, vocabulary lists and motivational signs to enhance the program. He adjusts his presentation according to age levels and learning objectives.
