    A Bristol beatboxer says his lessons have been helping children "use up their energy" and "connect" during the pandemic.

    Musician, Jack Salt, has performed with bands and works with people who are rough sleeping or disabled and people of all ages to share his beatboxing skills with them.

    Since the start of the pandemic, he started doing his beatboxing workshops and lessons online and now has students between the ages of six and 12 including students in France and New York.

    He said it's been "inspiring" to see people progress in their freestyling, singing and rapping and is something that is "much needed at a time like this".

    "I feel really lucky to be able to help young people stay creative during this time and it's really easy to feel isolated at the moment," he added.
