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.
Suitable for all ages although a minimum age of 5 years old is advised. We work with special needs, learning disabilities, young offenders, speech disorders etc too.
How Do The Sessions Work?
The aim of the beatbox workshop is to get every student involved in the creative process. Danny uses musical ice-breaker activities, teaches 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. He also uses 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.
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, ability of the group so whether the group is as young as 5 years old or as old as 75 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, youth prisons etc.
All necessary equipment is supplied by us, all we need is a suitable space and the people that will be participating in the workshop.
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 builds confidence, self-esteem and opens new creative doors. 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 to be including at your school, organisation, festival etc.
