    I’ve been beat boxing for about 6 months now and I was wondering what steps I should take and how to know when I’m ready to start performing. I’ve been asking for feedback as much as possible I even posted a SoundCloud of me beat boxing in the feedback forum of this website but I want to know what other steps I should take.

    Try to network with beatboxers close to you! There is power in groups

    The general standard for beatboxing gigs is very low – since it’s still a ‘rare’ and unique talent. I’d say the first thing you should do is to go audition for shows and a capella groups – then you might get lots of really solid feedback and see where you can improve.

     

    Keep us updated and good luck!

    n8 that would be great the problem is I don’t know personally know of any other beatboxers, I’m not sure how I would go about finding out about other beatboxers in my area. Jon park that sounds good I was going to perform in front of small groups of people before I auditioned for like an Acapella show or something and I’ve been going on Omegle frequently asking for feedback from other beatboxers around the country as well.
