Instructor Biography - Jeremy Lembo

Jeremy Lembo came to Florida in 1996 from the Hudson River Valley of upstate New York. Jeremys many years of formal music training shaped and honed his skills as a musician and set him up perfectly for playing the didgeridoo. Jeremy was introduced to the didg while watching a PBS Special at age 3. He rediscovered this interest in 1998 while traveling in South America, when he heard a fellow traveler playing this incredible instrument on the streets of Cusco, Peru. These amazing sounds instantly hooked him, and upon his return to the United States he purchased his first didgeridoo and has been playing ever since. He soon began crafting and selling his own line of didgeridoos, made from an assortment of materials. Jeremy considers the didgeridoo to be a reflection of ones soul, and by listening to his quick rhythms you get a glimpse inside of his.

Jeremy is a founding member of the Didg Revolution and Dragon Fly Rhythms. He and his didg mates Darren Liebman and Lindsey Dank also perform an Australia-theme music education and entertainment program for kids, called ?Didgeridoo Down Under ,? at schools, camps, cultural festivals, libraries, museums and other venues throughout Florida and the Southeast. Jeremy also specializes in making custom-crafted didgeridoos of all wood types, which he sells nationwide.
