UpBeat NYC

The philosophy of UpBeat NYC is that all children are innately musical and the study of music inspires discipline, teamwork, social/emotional growth, and a culture of constant learning. In service to this philosophy, UpBeat provides high-quality, long-term music training via year-round music classes and orchestra programs for ages 5-18 in the South Bronx.
