After many years experiencing the benefits of breathing exercises during yoga classes, Andy was attracted to learning to play the didgeridoo to take the use of the breath a stage further. The meditational sound of the instrument, probably the oldest on the planet, and being able to breathe in such a way as to maintain a continuous drone, was a challenge he accepted with enthusiasm. Since learning to play the instrument, he has played at fund raising events and as part of Sound Therapy sessions for groups of autistic children, and people in the early stages of multiple sclerosis. He has also given workshops for local groups, including Permaculture groups.
An introduction to the evolution of the instrument, what to look for in a suitable didgeridoo, breathing and playing techniques, how to look after the instrument and references to appropriate websites and support groups.
