Napoleon Maddox visited WordPlay Cincy as a guest teaching artist to kick off their week-long "Poetry, Music, Rhythm and Dance" workshop for students in grades K-8 on June 26th, 2017. Blending his gift of capturing children's imaginations with his beatboxing and spoken word skills, Napoleon led the eager participants on an exploration of how words can be delivered with rhythm and movement to amplify their impact.















Students and volunteers alike learned the basics of counting beats and laying down rhythms with simple beat-box sounds, culminating in a true group effort as Napoleon challenged them to read a well-known text to the beat: Dr. Suess's "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." Everyone in the group took turns reading from the book in time to the rhythm kept by a chorus of young beat-boxers, an effort that proved more confounding to the adults than the children. Napoleon guided the entire workshop with his rare combination of teacherly wisdom, musical maneuverings and humor, making for a thoroughly engaging experience for all.
