He has worked with schools (Elementary/Middle/High), Recreational/After school programs, and At-Risk-Youth Programs.

Ones and Twos



When it comes to the subject of math, the very first thing we see students take to is pattern. As years go on, we discover that many of our youth  never learn or forget to apply patterns, leaving them behind the learning curve. Newest to the catalogue of programs and workshops is “1’s & 2’s”: A Human Beat boxing workshop that incorporates both Math and one of the subcultures in Hip Hop, known as beat boxing. This workshop is introduced as a game, which uses numbers, symbolism, and onomatopoeia to turn puzzles into interactive music. The program guarantees that students will leave understanding the correlation between arithmetic, music, and pattern as it pertains to a form of composition.
