“Music has saved my life probably multiple times, and it’s more than therapeutic for me, definitely. The power of music is incredible—I appreciate what you’re doing and the community…this music has been my escape to get out of my mind and exist in the moment.” – #GlobalBeatCypher participant
As we continue to serve youth and communities across the globe during this uncertain time of COVID-19, we need YOUR help to continue doing so! Our goal is to sustain our youth programs and shift them online. Additionally, we need to support our teaching artists, who depend on their usual income from their now-discontinued teaching residencies, with critical teaching work to support them and serve the youth. your donations, whatever size, can help us to do so! If you can’t donate, just spreading the word helps!
Our newest online initiative, the #GlobalBeatCypher, serves music producers/beatmakers across the globe, offering them a way to combat loneliness and isolation through a supportive community, providing a platform to share their music, and facilitating the processing of their experiences and emotions through musical self-expression. We’ve pioneered the use of Hip Hop with the Therapeutic Beat Making(TBM)model to address trauma, isolation, and anxiety, and other mental health issues we face in this uncertain time. But don’t take our word for it—hear it straight from the mouths of the beatmakersin our weekly #GlobalBeatCypher!’
“Every time I’m in the studio I forget what we’re going through…I completely forget that side of it. Even what we’re doing in the Zoom meeting…anything that brings anxiety, stress to my mind—completely gone…because of sharing all the music with each other, it’s an amazing thing we’re doing…”–#GlobalBeatCypher participant
