We've Been On The Road This Summer - Find Out Where
The summer of 2022 has been our busiest summer yet here at School of Beatbox. We certainly have clocked up a lot of miles with workshops being delivered all over the country. We benefited from what felt like a bit of a boom for workshop providers. We could see that schools, sixth forms, colleges and universities had felt the impact of the pandemic and were eager to offer extra curricular activities for their students. Seeing them back in full swing is a delight and it's fantastic to be a part of it.
Danny Ladwa, our lead facilitator and head honcho at School of Beatbox travelled far and wide to connect, engage and inspire the youth of England armed with microphones, a loop station and a speaker.
There were many highlight moments and 'breakthroughs', as we call them as well as those more challenging moments. We class breakthroughs as moments where someone might be initially shy or reluctant to take part in the session but manages to overcome their fear by the end. This is something we come across frequently when using the voice as it can cause us to feel self-conscious
Where Have We Been?
As well as delivering in numerous primary and secondary schools, we also delivered at the only school in the UK that is solely for autistic girls as well as a number of SEMH's, PRU's and a children's secure unit. (We wrote a blog about working at the UK's only school for autistic girls) Offering creative workshops in settings where children and young people need a special kind of support is vital in our opinion. Seeing how the groups respond to music as well as open up when they get that golden opportunity is heartwarming and, many times, emotional.
As well as working with young people, we have been delivering sessions for staff training days, adult workshops and team-building.
This summer alone, Danny travelled to:
Manchester, Watford, Cheltenham, Bexley, Portsmouth, Rugby, Dover, Birmingham, Nottingham, Warwick, Southend-on-Sea, Bristol, Aylesbury, Amersham, Chesham, Chalfont Saint Peter, Oxted, Rochester, Burgess Hill, Cambridge, Tonbridge, Bromley, Dulwich, East Malling and Teddington.
It has been an eventful summer to say the least.
