UPBEAT STUDIO, our flagship program, is a free after-school music production and performance class for students ages 12 to 22. Taught by professional Artist Educators, who are performers and producers in the Greater New Orleans area, our young people are immersed in hip hop, rap, R&B, dance music and other popular genres, working with industry-standard technology.
Our Student Artists work from a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind curriculum, which utilizes professional studio equipment which includes, but is not limited to computers, midi keyboards, headphones, and Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) like Ableton, FL Studios, and Maschine. Our Student Artists are taught by Artist Educators who are professional musicians and producers from the Greater New Orleans area.
