The Upbeat Academy Foundation serves as a music education program offering a no cost enrollment to New Orleans high school students, with a focus on developing skills in hip-hop and electronic dance music production. Upbeat’s ongoing purpose is to support the development of emerging young artists by offering a venue in which they have access to create, critique and present their music under the supervision of established artists and innovators, and, among their peers who share similar interests. Upbeat has sparked hope and excitement in aspiring young artists, while motivating them to be responsible, organized students and upstanding members of their often troubled communities.
