Jessica's Didgeridoo
















Jessica brought in a Didgeridoo this morning...
don't ask us where she got it, or how she learned to make those noises...
but Boy is it cool!
We've posted pics below, as well as sample sounds...





The Kangaroo Hop. Keep the drone going and quickly say the letter D. Tap the roof of your mouth with the tip of your tongue while you do it. Now, to create the sound of hopping just say "doing" while playing.


The Dog Bark and Growl. Keep the drone going and scream into the didgeridoo. A loud and startling sound should come out. Refine it by trying to imitate a deep growl and dog bark.


The Kookaburra is of the kingfisher family and considered the protector by Aboriginal people and is distinguished by its gurgling, laughter like call. Bird call is talking rather than singing in Aboriginal cultures, only humans can sing.

the didgeridoo can help people with sleep apnea. it strengthens the muscles in their throat to help mild sleep apnea patients.
