Bucks New University - Can-didgeridoo attitude

Students on a leadership and management master's course have incorporated a key skill into their studies - playing the didgeridoo. Instruction on how to play the Australian instrument was given to participants on the Bucks New University course with the intention of taking students "out of their comfort zone". Didgeridoo expert Paul Harris, who gave the lesson, said the group had coped "extremely well" with the challenge. Patrick Smith, the course leader, added: "We all have to experience change and this is about people coping with a new challenge."
