National touring professional rock drummer, Mr. Rich, founded Youth Beatz in 2005 to provide an inspirational music enrichment program for the young people of today. Mr. Rich's unique rapport with youth has been providing a platform for Real-Time Inspiration for over 12 years, as students engage in a positive, aerobic, and creative environment performing for their families, schools, and community.
The Youth Beatz programs combine percussion and rhythmic movement, providing students, adults, and communities with a healthy, high-quality, enrichment experience that has an active focus on important life topics and soft skills, such as, Support, Belief, Respect, Teamwork, Control, Responsibility, Empathy, Compassion, Fitness, and Positive Choice Patterns. Our active programs and performance based lesson plans are centered on mentoring, and living and succeeding by example.
Students engage by creating rhythms, beats, and expressing their musical creations with empowering student-focused performances for the community, schools, and family events. The students will construct, promote, and perform shows using all of the lessons taught, fulfilling the ultimate goals of unity, expression and achievement.
In addition to in-curriculum, after-school and summer camp programs, Youth Beatz also offers "Team Building Beatz", a program designed for businesses and corporations to unify and energize their employees which has matching sponsorships opportunities to help funding our school programs.
