Kenneth is presently based in North Ayrshire but can travel to teach in the Glasgow/Ayshire area within reasonable distances.
Teaching is based on the provision that the student has their own Instrument and sound advice can be provided on the selection and type of Didjeridu relevant to a student's level of experience.
Kenneth has taught hundreds of students in Australia, New Zealand and Scotland, has even taught the basics to a young Western Australian Aboriginal boy whose mother wanted to bridge the huge gap from her western lifestyle back to her own cultural traditions and Kenneth was very proud to have been instrumental in this.
Women are perfectly able to learn and fully play the Didjeridu.
There are NO Cultural restrictions placed by the traditional custodians of the Yidaki(Didjeridu), the Yolngu people of North East ArnhemLand, this was specifically asked of the clans and Djalu Gurruwiwi authorised Kenneth to teach Didjeridu to everyone of all race, creed and gender.
