AN INTERNATIONALLY-acclaimed beatboxer will be teaching vocal skills to children at a hospice.

Artist Yasson is due to lead a workshop for youngsters at Naomi House and Jacksplace, near Winchester.

The centre takes on children – including those from the Portsmouth area – with terminal illnesses.

Huw Bromage, who helped organise the event, said: ‘A key way that Jacksplace differs from Naomi House is the amount of input the young people have in planning the activities and events.

‘This was a brilliant idea of theirs and we’re all really looking forward to working with Yasson.’

Beatboxing involves creating music with the mouth.

Yasson has been beatboxing since 2000 and has taught all ages, from toddlers to 50 year olds.

The workshop takes place on Friday, August 31.
