Find the power of your voice

Whether on stage in front of beatbox fans, in an auditorium speaking to students, or helping staff training at a corporate event, Kaila has seen the benefits of beatboxing and how it allows people to open up, work together and build listening skills, no matter what their musical skill level is. Kaila believes beatboxing is the perfect vehicle to allow audiences to come out of their shell and build confidence in their voice.


It's no secret that kids love to make sounds. We harness that passion and creativity to provide tools that children can use throughout their lives.

American Beatbox Champion Mark Martin and 2x World Champion Kaila Mullady team up to  teach in your school. They specialize in school assemblies focusing on confidence building, anti-bullying, inclusiveness, and how we can use creativity to overcome economic and social barriers. Assemblies include performance, as well as teaching the students (and teachers!) the fundamentals of beatboxing and creative vocalization.


Educational Offerings

Lightship is dedicated to finding the best way to teaching expression through the art of beatboxing, as well as share tools that help us find the power of your voice. We have several types of educational offerings, depending on class size, intensity, and intimacy.


Assemblies are best for larger groups (25 - 500). Assemblies focus on introducing concepts and basic tools. These are a great way to see who is interested in beatboxing, and gives them a vocabulary from which to grow.


Workshops are smaller and more intimate classes, with 3 - 25 students. Smaller class size allows for more monitoring and direct feedback from the instructors. This makes it easier to answer all of student’s questions and customize the class based on the wants and needs of the students

Private Lessons

Lightship offers private lessons for class sizes of 1 - 3. These are completely personalized classes based on your unique needs and desires. They can be held in person or online via programs like Skype. Private lessons allow for the most direct feedback and customized strategies for growth.


Interested in learning more? Lightship teaches intensive workshops for 2 - 5 consecutive days to dig deep into your desired focus. Intensives can be for one group of students over several days, or several groups of students learning different workshops. Any workshop or private lesson can be taught as an Intensive. We design a curriculum based on your time frame and needs.
