The Beatboxing 101 course is for anyone aged 9+ who is interested in vocal percussion and making their own beats on the go. Prior experience or knowledge of beatboxing is not required. Students will learn the following on the day:
Introduction to beatbox history
"Fundrumentals" - how to create the 'B', 'T', 'K' to produce bass, hi-hat and snare sounds
Vocal SFX, such as throat bass, scratching and horns
Compound beats - beatboxing in teams
By the end of the lesson, students will perform a song of their choice collectively as a class using all the techniques learned on the day.
