Interested in Learning how to beatbox?
Can you beatbox already?
Then come along to Norwich’s only weekly beatboxing drop-in session to either learn the basics or develop your skills. Anyone welcome.
Lee has many years experience in teaching all ages of all abilities. You don’t need any musical knowledge to be able to take part, just a willingness to participate. By taking part in something a bit different and unusual it’s easy to listen, stay focused throughout the sessions, and build self-confidence. These workshops have travelled through schools, youth clubs, cruise ships, corporate events, music festivals, promotional events, carnivals and theatres.
Each workshop session has an easy to follow step by step structure keeping everyone involved engaged and the activities involved are fun and enjoyable.
Beatboxing can be used in ways to help the development of new vocal skills and techniques, working within groups and musical understanding. By structuring the workshops in a certain way it can help the understanding of:
- Time Signatures
- Musical Notation
- Singing and Vocal Techniques
- Listening to Individual Instruments
- Working in Groups or a Band
- Using professional Sound Equipment
All WITHOUT being able to play any instruments beforehand or having any musical knowledge.

A typical lesson workshop includes a relevant warm up and ice-breaker games if necessary. A basic description of what beatboxing is, the history and background behind where it came from, and many of the techniques and tricks involved. Everyone is given the chance to have a go using the equipment and microphones provided and we even encourage a performance in front of the group at the end of the session. With many of the activities being practical and engaging everyone involved will enjoy being a part of it.
