So you know a little someone that likes to beatbox? Looking for music activities for children to do? Well they can join our weekly online beatbox class with UK championship beatboxer Danny Ladwa and learn this art alongside other children. They will learn how to make the sounds of the bass drum, hi hats, snares, sound effects and how to put them all together into rhythms. Beatboxing is a great way to boost confidence and creativity, develop musicality, song-writing skills and timing and discover new horizons with the voice. After a successful 16 week online programme for children during lockdown (with over 170 children signed up) we have decided to keep these sessions going and they're a hit.
The online beatbox classes run weekly on Wednesdays at 5pm-6pm (BST / GMT) - 1 Hour. Sign up and tune in from wherever you are.
Classes take place online via Zoom each week.
The classes are aimed at children aged between 5yrs - 11yrs. Some Older children aged 12yrs and 13yrs have joined and enjoyed the sessions too. You are welcome to try it out.
Each week Danny will deliver new material for students to learn and practice while also going over the fundamentals of beatboxing. Whether children are joining as complete beginners or they have some vocal skills already they would like to share, this class is designed to cater for all levels and abilities. Children can join for 1 lesson, a few lessons or attend every lesson! These classes are fun, educational and beneficial for all. Everything is taught in carefully constructed stages to make them easy to follow. Beginners will enjoy the more basic stages while more advanced beatboxers can have a go at the more complex stages. This way each class caters for the younger and older children while keeping the whole group engaged.

I started beatboxing at the age of 11 and found a way to express myself and my creativity like no other. I used to have a stutter / stammer around that time too and beatboxing gave me back my vocal confidence. Today, I'm a UK championship beatboxer, a recording and touring artist and i've been delivering beatboxing workshops in schools, PRU's, events and festivals for over 15 years. We are a social enterprise with a mission to inspire and engage young people and adults through music and the art of beatboxing.
