Then he started to play the didgeridoo. July 1998 he travelled to Australia. For one week he stayed in the aboriginal community of one of the best didgeridooplayers and makers of the WORLD, Mr. David Blanasi.

These teachings together with earlier workshops from Mark Atkins(didjeridu player of the year 1995), Alan Dargin, Sonny Cooper (Yorta Yorta tribe), Stephen Kent, Gary Thomas and many teachings from the Hungarian shaman Joska Soos gave him the possibility to develop as didgeridoo - player and teacher.
