Outside the Box: The Math Music Connection

Max Bent
Program Type


Research shows that music and math are highly interconnected. In the music residency Outside the Box: The Math Music Connection, students explore their relationship. Beatboxing, the vocal art form that combines human-produced beats with other vocalizations, is the perfect tool for understanding math concepts like adding and subtracting fractions, graphing, matrices, sequences, and many other challenging concepts.


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:
• Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
• A set of workshops ($100 each)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
• An evaluation meeting ($100)
• Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
