What is Beatboxing?
The human voice is amazing! Our vocal cords can make a variety of sounds that are constantly changing, depending on mood, energy and rhythm. Putting some of those sounds into a beat using one's mouth, lips, tongue, and voice is the essence of beatboxing. A cappella (Italian for “in the manner of the chapel”) music is group or solo singing without instrumental accompaniment, or a piece intended to be performed in this way. Put both these together and you have the Beatbox Acappella! – an engrossing activity that challenges your team to create music virtually, using nothing but your vocal cords. This is an unique offering conceived and created by Adam Thompson, an award winning artist from Australia. Do you think your team will be up for it?
The activity involves breaking down the essence of a well-known drum beat into simple, teachable sounds. If you are wondering how your team will ever do that – worry not - our masterful coaches will guide your team in this process. Before they know it, your team will be beatboxing in a united rhythm! By the end of the session, your team will have recorded their audio beats and vocals PLUS filmed a video clip. Our expert editors then piece everything together for your team to celebrate their achievements with pride in the following week.

Just wanted to thank you on behalf of our Khan Academy India team for the super energetic session today! You really made us feel that we were all in the moment and being virtual didn’t matter! The entire team is super excited about the final production and we will join your zoom invite for Monday for about 15-20 mins to watch it and soak it in together! Once again, thanks for truly delivering a fantastic experience and thank you FocusU for suggesting Beatbox Acapella as I know we had multiple discussions on this!
