CHILDREN at a hospice were given a masterclass in the art of beatboxing.

Naomi House and Jacksplace, near Winchester, look after children with life-threatening illnesses – including those from the Portsmouth area.

As a treat youngsters were visited by artist Yasson, a beatboxer who uses his mouth to make musical sounds.

He gave a brief history about the art, then taught young people the basic techniques of beatboxing.

Huw Bromage, a hospice worker who helped organise the event, said: ‘We all had a brilliant evening and it was great to see that every one of the young people was able to get engaged and involved, no matter the level of their physical or cognitive ability.

‘We’ve certainly unearthed some real talent at Jacksplace that we never realised was present and we’re hoping that Yasson will come back to visit us again in a year’s time to see how much we’ve all improved.’
