Rhyme & Rhythm Workshops
Rhyme & Rhythm workshops provides educational workshops for schools, youth organisations and businesses, specialising in poetry, rap and beatbox workshops and team-building experiences.
Marv Radio’s hip hop workshops involve teaching beatbox, rap and songwriting basics as well as focusing on improvisational skills and group musicality, all leading to a group sharing. They are experiential, transformative and fun and allow participants to gain skills in self-expression, listening, confidence and working in groups.
Rap is a modern form of poetry originating from New York, the birthplace of hip-hop and with strong roots in the African griot (travelling story-teller and musician) tradition. Forget the image of ignorant bling bling rappers talking about violence, money and drugs, real rap is an expression of self in rhythmic form and can be about any topic. A rap workshop can be a refreshing way to discuss difficult and challenging topics in a supportive environment. Radio’s rap workshops will have you rhyming like a pro!
Beatboxing emerged from the hip hop culture in New York in the 70s and 80s and is fast becoming a respected and valued musical discipline. It draws parallels and inspiration from many vocal styles from around the globe and even electronically created music. Unlike any other practice, modern beatboxers create full tracks using nothing but their mouth, nose and throat. Marv Radio's beatbox workshops cater for anything from the virgin vocalist to mouth masters! Learn the basics and progress to making incredible mouth music.
