Find the power of your voice

One of the most fulfilling parts of Kaila's career has been teaching workshops for the past five years promoting reading, writing and finding your own soul music. Her work using beatboxing as a tool for speech therapy led to a partnership with New York University where a class was designed specifically to build tools in the classroom for blind students based off of her curriculum. Giving back to communities is an integral part of Kaila’s creative process which motivated her to take over producing the American Beatbox Championships in 2016 which is the largest platform for Beatboxers in North America.

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.

“We can take what these kids were told they’re not good at, and then we give them superpowers,” Kaila said. “You could see the excitement on their faces.”
