Paul Arnett, a.k.a. Subsonic. Is a beatboxer from Peterborough, England who has been beatboxing for 12 years, and teaching for 6 years.

He has battled and taken part in The UK Beatbox Championships 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 for the Solo and Team categories.

He also uploads beatboxing tutorials to his YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/subsonicsbeatboxtutorials


"As you can see from my tutorials, I teach by breaking down the sound/beat into small and achievable steps, to build a clear understanding and a develop a solid skill at beatboxing." 

I have taught my friends and students on the internet how to beatbox online via video call and here is a quote from my first student.

"It is always fun to have a lesson with you :D Speak to you soon teacher! :)" - Leon from Germany
