School Of Beatbox delivers beatbox workshops in Schools, Festivals, Community Projects, Youth Groups, Private Functions .. you name it. Danny Ladwa (founder of School Of Beatbox) is a UK championship beatboxer, has been beatboxing for 25 years and teaching this art through these fantastic workshops for 15 years. He is also a singer and songwriter, has toured the world extensively with his talents and has released his debut album worldwide.
These workshops are of course great for enhancing or inspiring creativity but they are also fantastic for building confidence and self-esteem. Suitable for all ages although suited best for ages above 5 years old. We run sessions with people with special needs, SEN, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, offenders, people with speech disorders too, low self-esteem and confidence issues.
How Do The Sessions Work?
The aim of the beatbox workshop is to get every student involved in the creative process and leave the group with the fundamental tools to be able to continue practicing beatboxing as well as some important messages relating to being open with creativity. We ensure the workshop is packed with great content for the group to enjoy including musical ice-breaker activities, learning the 3 fundamental sounds in human beatboxing (The Kick, The Hi-Hat and The Snare) as well as breathing techniques and lots of other impressive sounds during the workshop. We also use electronic equipment to loop the groups voices to make unique sound-tracks together. If anyone in the group thought they had no musical talent, they are likely to change their mind by the end of the session as time and time again participants are blown away at what they have created and achieved.
Beatboxing is a great way to get a whole group on a level playing field, break down any barriers and lift confidence and self-esteem. The workshops also require that the group works cohesively to create something special.
Beatbox workshops can include lyric-writing / songwriting (time dependant) and sessions can work to fit particular themes you might be working on at your school or organisation.
These beatbox workshops are delivered to suit the age range and ability of the group so whether the group is as young as 5 years old, teenagers or adults we will ensure that the workshop is delivered in the correct tone and manner. We have lots of experience running beatbox workshops with various groups including special needs, and in prisons also.
All necessary equipment including PA system, microphone etc is supplied by us. All we require is a suitable workshop space.
What Do People Gain From The Beatbox Workshops?
People participating in these workshops will gain a new insight into creating music, one that is instant and absolutely unique. The individual and group work is great for building confidence, self-esteem and opens new creative doors. The workshops are transformational in many ways. We've seen people enter the space and leave the space with a completely different energy, one that is more open, inspired and willing to share. People love beatboxing, it's like magic to many and having the opportunity to learn exactly how it is done from a seasoned professional is something definitely worth considering including in your school, organisation or festival.
