What is Building Beats?

We believe in using students’ passion for music as a pathway to build entrepreneurial skills.

Becoming a DJ or producer reinforces the same skills needed to run a business, become a leader, and change the world.

We envision a world where everyone can realize their creative potential and use it to make a difference in their community.

We partner with organizations and programs that share this vision.

100% of the contributions we raise online go toward supporting programs that allow students to express themselves through DJ’ing, music and art, while developing personal skills that will help propel them to a brighter future.

We’re Building Life Skills by Building Beats.
