We're not normal.
WE HAVE FUN.
Because music shouldn't be boring and we want you to have the best environment for learning.
WE TAKE RISKS.
Because this is a safe place to make mistakes and we want to see you grow in confidence.
Because we know how much we can learn from each other and we want to push you to the next level.
Why we do what we do.
We believe in the potential of each and every student. We believe that kids need and desire positive role models, loads of encouragement, and meaningful affirmation. We believe that kids can grow in self-confidence through acquiring a skill that they are proud of, such as playing guitar, singing, playing drums, etc. They can learn to believe in themselves through successful performance experiences. They can develop humility and teamwork and trust by playing with other kids, through shared musical experiences. They can learn how to become leaders and how to help others, and how to accept constructive criticism. We believe kids need a place to belong – for some, it’s their basketball team, or their hockey team, or the chess club – but for many students (and adults) that place is lacking. That’s where we come in. Backbeat gives those who love music a place to belong, a place to make friends, a place to grow and learn and take risks, even make mistakes; a place to express themselves and discover who they are. That’s our philosophy. That’s what Backbeat is all about.
MEET OUR TEAM // they're our secret sauce
We don't hire people who are just great musicians. We hire people who have a teacher's heart. People know how to have fun and create fun. People who aren't afraid to take risks themselves so they can serve as role models for your child. We hire people who get excited about the idea of helping your child get to the next level.
