Music makes great memories. Learning to write music, play in a rock band, or produce your own song can be one of the most rewarding, memorable experiences you have in life; and is a great addition to the sunshine and sports that so often occupy our kids’ long summer breaks. Kids can appreciate the excitement of gaining new skills, pushing creative boundaries, making new friends, and producing something tangible. For teenagers, summer music programs offer a place to advance their creative ambitions in a supportive like-minded community. The opportunity to build confidence and gain a sense of belonging is invaluable.

Beyond the Beat has carefully crafted week-long day programs that combine the curiosity of students of all ages and levels, excellent mentors, and leading-edge technology with a whole lot of fun.

Summer programs with recording ‘add-on’ options start weekly on July 3 and run through to the end of August.

Sign up now. Take one week (or two) to experience Summer at Beyond the Beat. It could be the collaboration of a lifetime.
