How To Beatbox
Beatboxing is an art form that is difficult to learn without a teacher to watch and guide. While there are plenty of beatbox tutorials online, videos will not be able to coach a student and correct a student’s wrong mouth posture, mouth shape, or wrong muscle engagement. Your pupils do not need to wander around in the dark anymore! Our beatboxing syllabus, put together over more than 10 years of theory and practical experiences, will help your students to shortcut the entire process.
Accelerated Learning Speed
We have been through and experimented all the difficulties of beatboxing so that your students do need need to go through it themselves. At the very start of the course, we go through in heavy detail, what are the common problems of any particular sound, and the dos and don’ts that each student needs to do.
Certain sounds took me 3 months to get, and i’ve taken detailed notice of all the mistakes that I’ve made in the process of learning, so that I can tell the students what are the good and bad practices of each sound. this compresses their learning time into as short as one day to obtain certain difficult sounds.
Depending on your preference, our lesson may either comprise of
- Full-On Beatboxing
- Beatboxing to Music, or
- Beatboxing to raps that the students have created themselves
We have taught more than 14000 students beatboxing, but just to give a few examples, Queenstown Primary School enjoys the full on beatboxing course, Punggol Cove Primary School engages their learners with the beatboxing to their favorite songs (like let it go in the Frozen Soundtrack or Roar by Katy Perry), and Tampines Primary kicks it up a notch with the students
their own raps, and beatboxing to it as a team. (This is difficult but possible. Long periods and student attitude and aptitude are a requirement for this alternative)
Social Emotional Learning
Ministry of Education (MOE) encourages “social and emotional learning” for the various ways that it helps in a student’s character development. For instance, it helps the student develop their outgoing nature, their social skills, communication skills, creativity and critical thinking which all helps them develop into ‘globally responsible citizens’.
If you are a teacher looking to nurture the above skills in your pupils and wish to help them develop the essential skills for group cooperation and coordination, our beatboxing lessons would certainly be something you would be extremely interested in. Our faculty’s skills focus on group classes which will help the students develop the skills and emotions necessary for teamwork.
Teamwork is an incredibily important skill when it comes to real life work practices as we know. over and above the school textbooks and the practices of dead learning; working in groups shall help your students reach new heights of creativity and people skills. Working in groups shall make your students empathize with their fellow teammates and in the future with fellow citizens.
Education’s goal after all is that of helping a student reach all creative heights they can while they continue to be a conscious and responsible citizen. To that extent vocal percussion requires high levels of group coordination, discipline and the development of the necessary skills while developing a strong sense of rhythm.
Howard Gardner a psychologist from Harvard University in 1980s had suggested the idea of “multiple intelligences”. The concept is rather simple. There is no monolithic “one intelligence”. There are many kinds of intelligences among them he noted for instance “musical intelligence”, “kinaesthic intelligence” and also “interpersonal intelligence”. These intelligences, and many others are innate to us humans, but they need to be cultivated. The everyday rote learning of textbooks for examinations doesn’t help one get beyond “linguistic” and “mathematical” intelligence.
For these reasons that you might know, MOE strongly encourages various extracurricular activities. Our skills in music pedagogy combined with your student’s enthusiasm to learn cultivate their personality, can help unleash the dreams that MOE wants their students to achieve.
Learning beatboxing shall help unleash the musical skills in students and help them further their careers in the creative industry in future if they want to, or at least they shall take back with them pleasant memories of nurturing their leadership abilities and social skills to have some enjoyment while going through the learning process.
