We aim to write shows that appeal to pupils and parents while still ticking the educational boxes! We have a variety of history based productions as well as Christmas shows and 'leavers' shows to choose from. All our shows can be easily adapted to suit your children and come with an editable script.
As well as our full productions we have a choice of songs for you to purchase individually. Seasonal songs, assembly songs, those suitable for nursery and infants right up to P7, and songs suitable for various popular school topics, you're sure to find something to suit!
Laura and Kev are available to come in to your school and assist with the teaching and production of your show, as well as providing live music and professional sound for your show! They will travel anywhere in the UK! We also offer internet based support packages through YouTubefor your production!
Why sing a pre-written song when you can have your very own, bespoke song written in collaboration with your pupils! We have vast experience working in schools composing songs with children specific to your schools vision, values and aims! We also offer recording options for your song!
Who are we?
The Beat Box are Laura Hodge and Kevin Guthrie. Kev and Laura met at Beath High School where they both studied music, Kev focussing on drums and percussion while Laura played piano and studied singing. Laura went on to study for a B.Ed in Music and Kevin chose to focus on historical studies. Almost 20 years later they joined forces again pulling together their different talents to create music education company, The Beat Box!
What makes us different?
We aim to create music for primary schools that not only encourages and inspires the children through music, but also educates them at the same time. We understand that performing isn't for everyone, but through our productions we hope to help the children grow in confidence, work together as a team and seek to learn more through the topics we cover in our shows.
