The Art of Beatboxing
Many consider beatboxing to be the very first music instrument man ever created. The use and manipulation of your lips, teeth, throat and tongue to create music has evolved into a true art-form utilizing one of Hip Hop’s greatest mantras - making something from nothing. Beatboxing also serves as a powerful tool for making speech therapy exercises fun and engaging. For ages 13-18 years old. Presented by Bridging Education & Art Together (BEAT)
