Michiel is very experienced in teaching children of all ages. In his interactive classes he talks about music, geography, history, biology and people. Off course the main part of the workshop is about how to play the didgeridoo!

Workshops start at the 5th group and up. At primary schools the main focus will be on playing. There are different possibilities . Michiel can give an introductionary workshop for about one hour to an hour and a half. Or a full workshop of 3 or 4 times 1 hour. Michiel's experience is that out of a group of 30 children about 15 to 20 children will master full circular breathing. Every workshop we will conclude with a mini-concert!

Workshops

Over the past years, Michiel has been giving workshops all over Europe. Michiel is know for his relaxed way of teaching and always gets everybody going with his humor and clear teaching methods.

In a 3 hour beginners workshop, Michiel will get straight to the point. Circular Breathing. He will explain this in a few minutes and then it is time for practise. It's Michiel's experience that almost everybody will master this technique. We also start working on our first rhythms.
In a 3 hour workshop Michiel will start with listening to all the participants. At that time he will come up with a workshop that caters everybody's needs. With his 20 years of experience and study of sounds and rhythm he will able to make it interesting even for the most advanced players.
In this, 3 hour, workshop we will learn the many individual sounds which you can combine into your own version of Yolŋu style of playing. During the last part of the workshop we will learn some basic practice phrases so you can get an idea on how complex your music can get if you learn and practice the individual sounds.

Note: Michiel will not teach traditional songs from North East Arnhemland.

Part of the profits from this workshop will be used to support Yolŋu yidaki crafters and their work.

Michiel can offer this workshop with full support from Jeremey Cloake, yidaki coordinator for the Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka art centre in Yirrkala, Australia.
