Welcome to BzzKtt!

BzzKtt is a web application that groups and describes vocal sounds and vocal drum patterns (beats). You can think of it as a huge online library – the Bible of beatboxing. It can be used to learn to beatbox, or as a fun and powerful tool for language development or speech therapy.

If you need help you will find a drop-down help (show/hide) link on most pages and if you get lost you can always click on the BzzKtt logo at the top of the page to bring you back here.

Sounds in BzzKtt are described using Beatboxology. Sounds are broken into components and each component is described using an easy-to-learn icon called an iconophonic. Iconophonics describe how sounds are made and shaped by the mouth. The use of iconophonics means you can learn how to re-create complex sounds.

Lessons

Wondering where to start? You can dive straight in to BzzKtt by browsing the different sounds and patterns, but if you are new to BzzKtt or new to beatboxing the best place to start is Lesson 1. This will take you through creating several basic sounds and combine them into a simple beat pattern.

Sounds

Each sound is broken down into its component iconophonics so you can learn how complex sounds are made from simpler sounds.

Patterns

BzzKtt contains over 100 beat patterns. A beat pattern is a beatboxing groove. Patterns are grouped into genres and can be sorted by tempo, beatboxer, and difficulty level. You can play individual sounds and link to them, to learn how they are made.
