You would have to hire a musician, a motivational speaker, a historian, a scientist, a puppeteer, a comedian, an author and an artist to cover what we offer in just one show!

DIDGERIDOO DOWN UNDER is an Australia-themed show that combines Music, Culture, Art, Science, Literacy Development, Comedy, Character Building, Anti-Bullying and Audience Participation. We vary our programs according to our audience members' ages (3 to ageless), the particular venue and individual school/classroom learning objectives. We use motivational signs, books, vocabulary lists, maps, globes, artifacts, art work, puppets and musical instruments to enhance our presentations. DDU is musch more than music ... it's interactive, educational, motivational and highly entertaining!

DDU Mission:
... promote tolerance and respect for all people and cultures.
... ignite excitement about learning and reading.
... further appreciation of world music and art.
... encourage environmental protection.
... expand students' vocabulary.
... help end bullying in schools.
... deliver superb fun!

Our school programs are accompanied by a 13-page Study Guide, and are aligned with state and national educational standards. In our Didgeridoo Workshops we teach how to play and paint didgeridoos!

We perform and teach at elementary/middle/high schools, colleges, libraries, camps, childcare centers and other venues throughout the U.S
. We also offer workshops for teachers and other educators, showing how to apply unique facets of our programs to their own curriculum.

All of our performere are experienced, and have Level 2 security clearance.

Fundraising ideas for your school:
- Pool funds from multiple departments: PTA-PTO, music, art, media center, social studies, guidance, etc. DDU is a cross-curricular program that applies to all areas!
- Apply for a grant from your local arts council; education foundation; Target; or any of the many other organizations that fund enrichment programs nationwide.
We can help your grant writing process by providing our education outline and other info.
- Ask each student to contribute $2-3. Even if only half the kids contribute, this probably will cover a good portion of the cost.
- Share our website with other schools. You'll get a discount for every school that refers your name when booking. Each referred venue also will receive a discount, regardless of when or how many programs they book!

Didgeridoo Down Under is listed on some of the most prestigious arts-in-education rosters in the nation, and your school might qualify for funding simply by being in the right district. Ask Darren for details!
