Don’t forget to get your students to complete the SURVEY if they haven’t already done so!
To provide students with a palette of vocal sounds focusing on recreating rhythm and bass lines vocally
Mississipi Mud Slap Warm Up
Use clapping rhythms as a starting point to call and response, and move around the body to end with warming up the voice. At this point, start layering up different vocal patterns with the group as an improvisation activity
Beatboxing activity where students:
- Use words as a starting point to beatboxing
- Exploring phonemes and mouth shapes
- Inwards and outwards breath to create sounds
Explore phonemes through workshopping a bass style based on a current musical genre that students will be familiar with.
Create our own beatboxing pieces using the names of composers!
Bring the bassline and the beats together then bring back the four chord medley. Workshop this and explore layering in different vocal percussion sounds and beats.
