This #GivingTuesday please donate to help Today’s Future Sound
continue to reach youth and continue the #GlobalBeatCypher
Today’s Future Sound (TFS) believes in the power of music to transform people’s lives. Our beat making and music production programs for youth have educational, therapeutic, and social components that inspire creativity, boost confidence, build hope, and help develop healthy ways of coping through our Therapeutic Beat Making (TBM) groups that integrate Dynamic Mindfulness (movement-based guided meditation). We also provide the weekly interactive livestream/virtual #GlobalBeatCypher free for producers around the world to stay connected, supported and to have a place to showcase and build during these difficult times.
COVID-19 has drastically cut our funding and we need your support!
What has TFS been up to since COVID-19?
Thanks to platforms such as Zoom, we were able to successfully shift our beat making sessions online for students locally in Oakland, the Bay Area, and around the globe.
We continue to run our Beats4Lunch program twice-weekly virtually for West Oakland Middle School students for almost nine years and preparing to continue our fifth year at Alameda County Juvenile Hall through virtual means.
In recent months, we have been providing Therapeutic Beat Making groups for teens in substance abuse recovery and mental health treatment programs, as well as workshops for local houseless youth and transitioning families at East Oakland Community Project, a Girls’ Beat Making Workshop led by female beat makers, and we provided a Spanish-language beat making workshop with bi-lingual instructors!
