In this music-focused residency, students learn the fundamental techniques of the vocal art form called beatboxing. In Outside the Box: Beatboxing 101, students learn to make drum sounds, sound effects, and emulate various instruments, bringing all of these pieces together into a beatbox performance! Creative collaboration is emphasized throughout the workshop.

"He was AMAZING! The kids LOVED and LEARNED so much! He is an arts integration master!"

Nicole, Teacher, Willards Elementary

"The entire school could not get enough of Max Bent's show. I think the parents were skeptical to have a beat boxer entertain and educate the students, but word spread like wildfire that his performance was amazing!"

Dottie, PTA, Lutherville Elmentary

"Not only is Mr. Max a compelling performer, but he is a truly gifted teacher. Max's musical skill level was extremely high, and he spent a lot of time teaching the students, even before the show."

Anne, Teacher, John Hanson French Immersion School
