Learn to beatbox with former world champion beatboxer Bellatrix
The next courses will begin on 4th March & 1st April 2024
Every Monday you will receive your pre-recorded weekly learning module, which is roughly 20 minutes long.
From Tuesday to Sunday you will receive pre-recorded guided practice videos. Practice time is roughly 10 minutes.
Every Thursday there will be a live group coaching call on zoom, with me (Bellatrix). This will be 40 minutes long.
Everyone who takes part in the course gets a 1-to-1 coaching call on zoom with me. I can't wait to meet you!
"It is actually awesome. Very clear, step-by-step, very hard to misinterpret and I've never had a k snare explained to me like this before. Illuminating.”
"You are inclusive and you make people feel like they have intrinsic worth and whatever they can achieve is enough. At the same time you encourage and inspire people to move forward in their beatbox journey.”
"Thank you so much for this course and your fine teaching, patience, encouragements, grace and charm. I think the course is so wonderfully and beautifully constructed in a variety of ways!"
What skill level is this for?This is a beginners course, and I will be teaching from the beginning. This course is for you if: You have any level of musical experience, from none to loads. You have no beatboxing experience. You have tried out some beatboxing, but you do not yet have a solid grasp of the basics. This course is not for you if: you have a solid grasp of the basics of beatboxing and are looking to take it to the next level.
What is the structure of the course?Monday: You will receive your weekly module, in the form of a pre-recorded video. It will be roughly 20 minutes long. Tuesday & Wednesday: You will receive guided practice videos to work on the principles covered in the module. Sometimes I will also bring in new learning content. These will be roughly 10 minutes long. There are also some bonus practice videos for those who are able to do them / want to do them. Thursday: There will be a live group coaching call on zoom. This is to cover any questions you may have about the work so far, and support your learning. It will be 40 minutes long. There will be no video this day. Friday, Saturday & Sunday: You will receive more guided practice videos to work on the principles covered in the module. These will be roughly 10 minutes long. Sometimes I will also bring in new learning content.
How good will I be by the end of the course?There is not a direct answer to this question, because everyone is different. There are different elements to being a beatboxer including making sounds, understanding rhythm, feel for groove and more. Some people will pick certain elements up faster than others, and that's okay! We will all improve at different rates depending on our own personal rate of growth, alongside how much energy we can / choose to dedicate to the journey. This is a beginners course, and is designed to guide you through the beginner level, and set you up to continue your journey at an intermediate level.
Do you do scholarships?Yes! I don't want anyone to be priced out of this course, so there will be a number of scholarship slots available each time I run the course. These are 'Pay What You Can', and will be available on a first come first served basis. The more paying participants I get, the more scholarship places I will be able to open up. Please get in touch if you would like to apply for a scholarship.
What is the returns policy?You can have a full refund within 7 days of purchasing the course, up until the start date. Once the course has started, you can't have a refund.
How long do I get access?You have access to the recorded course content for one year. This means that you can move at a slower pace if you need to, and also that you can repeat that element of the course in your own time. If you don't take your 1-to-1 lesson within the time that the course is running, you may lose the lesson (depending on my availability to squeeze you in at a later date). You will have ongoing access to the Facebook Community forever - as far as I can say forever.
