Josh Starita

Instructor

Beatboxer, vocalist, and arranger Josh Starita is proud to present this Beatboxing masterclass. Josh has loved a cappella music and vocal percussion since he was just 10 years old when his family bought a couple of BYU Vocal Point CDs that they listened to while doing Saturday chores. Josh immediately began to imitate the noises he was hearing (constantly annoying his family) and soon developed some rudimentary beatboxing skills. In high school, Josh was the first beatboxer for Voiceover where he continued to develop his talents through Youtube tutorials, a cappella music camps, and workshops, eventually winning “Rocky’s Got Talent” for his beatboxing/singing/piano set. In college, Josh took vocal percussion lessons from the legendary Matt Newman, who has won multiple beatboxing competitions and beatboxed for BYU Vocal Point and UVU Voiceline. Josh also participated in BYU A Cappella’s Duly Noted and UVU’s premiere a cappella group, Voiceline. Now, six years after participating in Cantus, Josh is excited to be back in the treasure valley where he will co-direct VoiceOver with Keith McCauley and Annie Roberts.
