Teachers appear in many forms. Some call them gurus, guides, tutors or even masters. The role is almost identical through all these titles and that is to be a person that passes on knowledge. It is true that in todays world we are able to learn many things simply by doing a quick search online, for example; topping up the pressure in your boiler or changing the strings on your guitar. With certain skills and art-forms, having the right teacher to guide you every step of the way is a sure fire way to learning that skill in the best way. If you want to learn the art of beatboxing, School Of Beatbox have the right beatbox teacher waiting for you.
Danny Ladwa, founder of School Of Beatbox, has been beatboxing for over 25 years and teaching beatboxing via workshops, private 1-2-1 online lessons and private 1-2-1 lessons in-person for over 15 years. He has learned that having a skill doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be a good teacher, this is something he has learned over the years.
What makes a good teacher?
A good teacher firstly needs to know his subject inside out. This is where experiential knowledge can be the thing that differentiates between ‘ok teachers’ and ‘excellent teachers’. As a beatbox teacher, Danny says that “one of the most important things is understanding the capabilities and the ideal learning-pace for my students. It is counter-productive to overload a student with things to learn as you lose that engagement and excitement. This is music at the end of the day, it should be fun.”
