Are you trying to create new sounds people haven't heard?

Improvisation & Innovation

Anyone who is familiar with beatboxing knows that it is a musical style based on improvisation and innovation. In this respect it is very much like Jazz. Remember that you are supposed to do your own thing and not follow exactly what others do.

Listen to a lot of different musical types and try to come up with new beatbox sounds and techniques based on what you hear. Be creative and don't just do what has already been done. Start something new that you can call your own. Give people something they haven't seen or heard before. That's how beatboxing started in the first place.

The best musicians throughout history are just that because they dared to create something that wasn't being done by everyone else under the sun.

As you develop new ideas and techniques, don't forget to breathe. It is not unheard of for a beatboxer trying to create new sounds to pass out from not breathing because they were not used to making those sounds and taking a breath at the right times.

If you are new to the style, master the basics that are already out there and how to incorporate your breathing with them before moving on to new creations. It takes time to become a human beatbox.
