BEAT Rockers

Presented by Aileen Leon-Echeverria and Brittany Wilson, BEAT Rockers

BEAT Rockers

BEAT Rockers is a music program that incorporates beatboxing for self-expression to alleviate emotional burdens, and reduce social isolation. Beatboxing is a means to creatively self-express in a way that is fun, culturally responsive, and accessible.

In this workshop, rather than teaching participants how to play an instrument, they become the instrument using their own voices and bodies. Participants will learn the basics of beatboxing and will learn how to put these three sounds together into percussive patterns.
