If you really want to engage children or youths, you should think about booking a rapping and human beat boxing workshop. Rap remains our most popular workshop activity. Hip hop rap or rapping, is firmly engrained in today’s youth culture.
Rapping is effectively poetry behind beats. This is an activity that can be utilised in a plethora of ways. We’ve used rap to help improve literacy, to discuss anti bullying, propagate environmental awareness, and promote personal, social, health and economic education / PSHE, for corporate events and much more.
We have also provided rap therapy workshops where participants gain therapeutic benefits as they express themselves in a creative way.
Nugent Education has also devised rap to revise for exams workshops. Exam results were improved as a direct result of rapping through key questions; rapping to revise for exams and tests workshops can work with almost any subject area where things need to be remembered. Rapping can help engrain information, in a fun way. The genre will also allow for a subject to be discussed in a fun, non threatening way.
Allot of children, often disengaged, relate to popular rappers today! As a diversionary activity, it’s second to none and by far our most popular workshop as the feedback testifies to.

We have some terrific and prolific rappers on our books including a rapper know as Mac Trades, James Taylor and Kyle Kerr AKA Kizzy Kidd. Also, a new rapper and beat boxer named Danny Ladwa. His profile reads as follows:
Danny Ladwa, formerly known as ‘Lyrikool Lipz’ started writing lyrics from the age of 11, and soon after discovered he had a particular talent for beat boxing. Born in Nottingham and from Indian heritage Danny spent much of his free time as a youth composing songs and soundtracks in his head, mostly on the fly.
Danny released his debut solo album ‘UNFOLDING’ worldwide in 2015. Strikingly catchy melodies and haunting hooks will keep you transfixed in these compositions where Reggae, Hip-Hop, Soul, Drum and Bass and Jazz have all nestled themselves comfortably.
Danny is currently working on new material with Mo Pleasure who has worked with some of the industry’s biggest names including Earth Wind & Fire, Ray Charles and Michael Jackson to name but a few. Danny and Mo formed an instant connection when they first met and the future looks bright. Danny’s musical past is colourful and diverse, and he is truly an international artist who has performed in the four corners of the Globe. Past career highlights include performing alongside ‘Supa Mc TC Islam’ (son of Afrika Bambaataa) at ‘EcoSystem Festival’ in Brazil, joining Hip Hop fusion band ‘NOU’ (One Little Indian Records.. Bjork’s Record Label) in Brighton for their UK tour, and winning a place in the UK Beatbox Championship Final. In 2006 Danny collaborated with Gaudi and the Live Dub Laboratory at the Glade Festival, and Gaudi obviously liked what he saw, as this swiftly lead to more UK and European dates and Danny being featured later on Gaudi’s album ‘No Prisoners’ on the track ‘Brainwashed Again’. He recently featured on Gaudi’s 13th solo album ‘In Between Times’ on the tracks ‘Unlimited Possibilities’ and ‘Why U Wanna Run’. Since their first meeting, Danny has spent the last 4 years touring the world with Gaudi, performing everywhere from Goa to Glastonbury.
