Charlie Puth Reveals How He Learned To Beatbox at 8-Years-Old
It turns out Charlie Puth began perfecting his beatboxing skills back when he was just in 8th grade. He explained to Karen and Jeffrey from Fresh 102.7, "My dad would listen to Motown ... R&B. My mom would listen to folky, Americana stuff and the classical music. I got a nice smorgasbord of musical offerings," says Puth. "I would harmonize with every song. I would beatbox ... And that's how I make music on the fly: I'll just click my teeth and annoy the crap out of everybody around me."
