Often referred to as the fifth element of hip-hop, beat-boxing is a form of vocal percussion. Join beat-boxer Lee Gibling for this lively hands on workshop which will cover:

  • Structures
  • Time Signatures
  • Tempo
  • Musical Notation
  • Singing and Vocal Techniques
  • Listening to Individual Instruments
  • Working in Groups or a Band
  • Using professional Sound Equipment

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 there’s even the opportunity to perform at the end of the session.

Lee Gibling is one of the UK's most talented and versatile beatboxers ranging from solo performances in Nightclubs, at weddings and on variety and Cabaret shows. Following his 10+ years of performing experience he is capable of performing to any crowd. You can also check out his Acapella group The Acafellas, the UK's newest and modern vocal band. He has also appeared on CBBC's The Slammer and following this worked on 'CBBC Live' performing with and teaching presenters from Blue Peter and other shows.

Lee also has many years experience in teaching beatboxing and vocal percussion techniques in many settings. These include schools, youth clubs, charities, activity clubs, and corporate team building days. Find out more here
