“Gauthier challenged me all day and I ended up mastering the circular breathing. If you hesitate to participate in one of his courses because you find that you do not have the level, a bit like me before registering. Do not hesitate any longer, Gauthier adapts his course to your practice, you will learn a lot of things there 🙂 "
“Gauthier is not only a passionate virtuoso of his instrument. He is also a remarkable theorist and teacher. Very attentive to the needs and feelings of his students, he quickly knows how to identify what limits us and offer what we need to progress. I recommend him wholeheartedly. ”
“A particularly appreciated the course (for a very first approach of the instrument). Gauthier is a very good teacher and has been able to adapt to all levels. For a first masterclass, we acquired a good basis to continue. Beautiful musical energy… Where a great atmosphere reigns! "
“Gauthier, you already know that I really appreciated your pedagogy, your involvement for each of us, there were 10 of us all the same, so hats off… Your philosophy and your way of seeing the Didgeridoo is top notch and in addition I have made great progress during this masterclass… When will the next one be? "
5 reasons to come
on a masterclass
Meetings and sharing
Masterclasses are a privileged break from everyday life. A breath of fresh air which encourages with simplicity and lightness the meeting around our common passion which is the didgeridoo.
At the start of the course, we all meet to take stock of each other’s game. I take this opportunity to listen to your game and your expectations.
I then give you exercises adapted to your level and guide you individually throughout the day.
10 players, no more
In order to take advantage of the group energy, but without losing the individualized work, all masterclasses are limited to ten people.
All levels welcome!
Whatever your level, you are welcome. At the start of each course, I make groups to distribute the levels.
Just one thing, for beginners the course will be more tiring. But don’t worry, you follow the course at your own pace! 🙂
You won't forget a single exercise
Difficult to remember all the exercises practiced in training. This is why during the weekend I take note of the exercises that I have given you. Then give me a few days to put it all together, and I’ll send you a personalized PDF that sums up all of the techniques you’ve covered during the two days!

How does a masterclass day unfold?
They participated in a masterclass
“Gauthier is a great didgeridoo teacher. Very knowledgeable in all practical matters of using the didge. During the course, he gives very one of us the appropriate exercises, and he follows the progress of each throughout the day. There are also stimulating group activities that are valuable for progress. Gauthier is very patient and encouraging. After the masterclass, I had learned enough to be able to practice for several months! "
“The course gave me new angles of approach as well as techniques to get out of my comfort zone and expand my playing possibilities. "
“Gauthier combines perfect listening with a sharp analysis of each player. I was amazed by the personalized exercises given to each one corresponding exactly to each level and allowing to take a step in the game. For my part, my game, as well as my sound, have totally evolved since my meeting with this master… Because yes you have to call a cat, a cat… and Gauthier “masters”, with this clear transmission faculty and adapts to the level of the 'interlocutor. Thank you the artist !!! "
“I have already participated in 2 courses. The first gave me the basics of the didge and the second allowed me to improve myself even more ... Looking forward to the next. 🙂 Super nice atmosphere, intense masterclass with lots of personalized advice, lots of discussions ... Bravo and thank you. "
“Whether it is in a masterclass or in a private lesson, Gauthier offers quality didgeridoo courses adapted to each one that will necessarily make you progress, very good teacher and very friendly humanly ... At each meeting we have a great time ... And we leave with work to do."
“Great atmosphere in the courses!
Gauthier puts himself at everyone's level so that everyone progresses at their own pace. Didgeridoo players are a big family! 😀 "
“Thanks to your masterclass, I was able to master circular breathing and enter the“ pleasure ”Didgeridoo. Now I have fun doing your personalized exercises every day. My level has clearly evolved! I am happy to have been able to meet you and other players from my region. Can't wait for the next masterclass!"
“Hi Gauthier, I can only be delighted with the upcoming masterclass as the first one was so pleasant… We learn by being ourselves, in a light, pleasant way without taking ourselves seriously but… by working very seriously while having fun! A beautiful effective pedagogy and the most beautiful is that is innate in you!
You are accessible with a lot of humor and you transmit your knowledge intelligently. You give confidence and momentum to the person who learns ... For my part, I blocked on the circular breathing and left with it, at the end of the first 2-day course with you, as you had told me ...
Since then, blowing is a joy, an enchantment so thank you for your help and your passion transmitted for the didge!
Sincerely yours and see you soon "at the waterfalls". ; )
Ah yes, listening to you playing / blowing is also an enchantment that is felt in your CD "Renaissance" in which we discover a THANK YOU from you once opened. 🙂 "
“I found the course to be very educational. When I arrived, I was playing from the side. Directly Gauthier noticed this shortcoming. And he gave me the necessary instructions to play head-on. So I learned to play from the front during the whole course. During the day, several techniques were discussed, especially with regard to the rhythms and sound effects. I came out of the masterclass having progressed and with the tools to evolve even better. Since then, I have worked and I now manage to play from the front and manage my circular breathing. From now on, I still have to develop more dynamic rhythms. But the world was not made overnight. I hope to eventually introduce the didge into a complete musical ensemble. Thank you Gauthier. "
" Great !!! I had a great time in Toulouse ...
I would like to point out that Gauthier is, for me, a very good teacher, he knows how to listen and gives very valuable information on your way of playing, what you have to work on, what you "master".
He has a very large playing palette, which allows him to orient you towards a lot of different styles.
During his masterclass, he takes time with everyone and he knows how to make work groups very quickly so that you can work effectively on what you have to deepen.
For my part, I only did a one-day masterclass last year, but without hesitation I return to her two-day masterclass in Gimel-les-Cascades (organized by a player / friend that I have met in Toulouse during last year's masterclass). These courses are also used to meet, to share with other players from the region or from further afield ...
Finally, I recommend his courses to all types of beginners or confirmed players. If you have the basic sound come and spend a few hours, spend a few days at the masterclass and you will grow up… ”
“Gauthier has a very good pedagogy. He adapts with patience and creativity to the levels and needs of each individual. He explains super well and is very motivating!
I loved the masterclass I did with him! "
“I had learned a lot as a beginner player at the time and it allowed me to meet other players from my region that I saw afterwards. All in a good atmosphere! So I would happily do it again when I could. "
“Hi Gautier, I love your masterclasses, the atmosphere is very nice, I am improve each time, I can't wait for the next one !!! "
“Exceptional Masterclass. Gauthier takes the time to identify the blockages that are specific to each. Very educational, he dissects how to overcome the inherent difficulties in learning sounds and other vocalizations. And last but not least, we are entitled to a concert at the end of the masterclass… A killing knowing that he is part of the best player of the world concerning the subtle mastery of the didgeridoo! 👍🙏"
“I was surely the numbskull of this session but Gauthier showed patience and only encouraged me for that and without hesitation go to learn the didg with him!"
“It was a very rewarding masterclass day on all levels, both in terms of didge (technique, advice, mastery, etc.) and in human terms. Gauthier has a very good approach to teaching, very good pedagogy. We work hard for a day (in a great relaxed atmosphere of course ^^) but the reward is the key! I recommend his courses without hesitation,: o) »
“Great masterclass with Gauthier! Being a confirmed player, I did not expect to discover so many. He can easily understand and decipher the way you play and take you to unexplored places. Thank you so much !"
“Gauthier observes, listens and quickly identifies the points to be worked on. And offers adapted exercises to improve your game. All with a lot of patience and kindness! "
“Gauthier offers great accessibility to the world of didgeridoo and that with a lot of skills, authenticity and simplicity. The masterclass gave new impetus to my didgeridoo practice. Gauthier was able to identify the qualities and blockages of each by proposing effective solutions to improve our game. A relevant approach and intelligent group management helped to create a benevolent space conducive to progress. Thank you."
“Gauthier is a great teacher. He very quickly succeeds in capturing the needs of beginners or more advanced players. There is really a big change in the game after the masterclass."
“Following an masterclass with Gauthier is first and foremost having a great time in a friendly atmosphere. All levels combined, Gauthier knows how to put us at ease, humor and laughter are present.
A directive: Sharing this passion for breath without any idea of competition. You do with what you are in a permanent state of good humor, without judgment. It is on this simple principle that a kind of club, or even community, is set up and create links between players, where everyone feels free to share and exchange what brings us together: the didgeridoo. This masterclass is experienced for me as a time of renewal and well-being widely and pleasantly shared. Thank you Gauthier »
“Exercises adapted to each participant in order to make them progress. So very positive opinion. "
“I made a lot of progress with the precious advice of Gauthier during his masterclass. He is very attentive and he puts you at ease. What I also found in his teachings is a great benevolence and a pedagogy adapted for everyone, whatever their level.
If you want to discover, learn, improve your didg game, don't hesitate !! "
“Gauthier is a didg's teacher that you must have close to you! These courses are very suitable for unlocking key stages. I recommend Gauthier's masterclasses because he will adapt to you during a very enriching day shared in joy and simplicity."
“Beginning in the practice of didgeridoo, I wanted to understand and learn the technique of circular breathing during my first masterclasses with Gauthier. I had a great weekend during which the watchword was sharing. We are lucky to have such a great professional who offers masterclass so close to us. I'm going back as soon as I can. "
A few words about my experience
Since 2008, I have been invited all over Europe, in Russia and even as far as Taiwan to teach the didgeridoo. I have met thousands of students, given hundreds of workshops and played tens of thousands of hours … But I think it’s more useful to talk to you about what drives me rather than numbers!
What interests me is helping you find new keys, new sensations, new ways to better express yourself with your didgeridoo.
I like to take the time to accompany you and find the little exercise that will take you to the next step. And the precious time spent together in masterclass is particularly suited to this kind of exercise. 🙂
Looking forward to meeting you “in person”!

Frequently Asked Questions
I accept all levels, from the complete beginner to the confirmed player. However, if you know how to play the drone at least (not even very elegant 😉) it’s a real plus. You can also start practicing the circular breathing exercises ( see the free course on circular breathing ). And believe me, even in a few days you can already make a lot of progress. This will make the masterclass much easier for you.
Unfortunately in masterclass I do not lend didgeridoos. However, it is possible to order a PVC instrument for around € 30 (see also “Which didgeridoo to learn to play?” “ ). These didgeridoos are perfect for beginners and will serve you at home to keep blowing.
Priority is given to those who wish to participate in both days. It is, on the one hand, to maintain the coherence of the group, and on the other hand to make sure that I cover my expenses. However, if there are places left a few days before the course, contact me to discuss it !
