The Kid Should See This

Improvised Deconstruction – Reggie Watts

Reggie Watts is a comedian and musician in Brooklyn that you may have seen on tv or on the internets. He plays with accents, beat-boxing, sound effects, a wide range of music styles, and other often improv’d creations.

While his work is for mature audiences, our kid really likes this particular video (by Ronen V) of Reggie breaking out the layers and loops with gear that includes a multi-track looper, as well as some very clear visuals that help explain the improvised song’s construction.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
