Testimonial
My lesson with Emilie was amazingly helpful - she broke down a concept that I’d been struggling to understand into its simplest parts in a way that made it so much clearer to me, and she was super kind and encouraging. She not only helped me with the specific beatbox skill I wanted to learn but gave me broader tips that will be useful to me as I continue developing as a beatboxer. I’m really grateful for her help and would definitely recommend her to anybody looking to improve their beatboxing!
