‘An Introduction to Beatboxing’ is a 6 week course funded by Arts Council England and is offered to your school free of charge. The course will teach young people the fundamentals of creating an accapella ensemble performance using beatboxing, singing and rapping, culminating in a group performance and a professionally produced album of the art work that they produce.

We were lucky enough to have Chris run his beatboxing course at our school last academic year, and our students absolutely loved it! I can highly recommend this course as a way of unleashing hidden talents some of our students didn’t even realise they had, and as a fantastic opportunity to boost students’ self-esteem. Everyone involved got so much from the course. And several are now active members of 20 Stories High Youth Theatre too, so win-win!
