Wondering where to start? The Lessons take you through the basics of beatboxology, sounds, patterns, and how to use BZZKTT. In Lesson 1 you will learn to create several basic sounds and combine them into a simple beat pattern.
Sounds in BzzKtt are described using a system called Beatboxology. Sounds are broken into components described using easy-to-learn icons called iconophonics. Iconophonics show how sounds are made and shaped by the mouth. Iconophonics can be combined to make more complex sounds. You can view iconophonics as a list or a map.
Single Sounds are the basics of beatboxing. You can browse single Sounds by timbre (type) and also sort them by kits and difficulty levels. Each sound is broken down into its component iconophonics so you can learn how complex sounds are made from simpler sounds.
Sequences are sounds that continuously morph or blend from one single sound to another, for example words such as, “hello.” Like Sounds, Sequences can also be sorted. Each sequence is broken down into its component sounds so you can learn how they are made.
A beat pattern is a beatboxing groove made of sounds, sequences, and/or rolls. Patterns are grouped into genres (types) and can be sorted by tempo and difficulty level. You can play individual sounds in a beat pattern and link to the Sounds to learn how they are made.
