Teach The Teacher: January 2017 Application
Thank you for considering applying for Teach The Teacher training with Bridging Education & Art Together (BEAT Global)! We are a vibrant arts education organization with a mission to transform the lives of youth by empowering artists to build community through creative self-expression rooted in advancing Hip Hop culture. At BEAT Global, we bridge the gap between arts and education by collaborating with our students to create a culture that values respect, confidence, and community, which we believe are the building blocks of leadership. Our programs are led by professional artists who provide committed mentorship in living art forms such as beatboxing, Bboy/Bgirl (breakdancing), freestyle/MCing, music production, and creative writing.

Our Teaching Artists include some of the most notable cultural icons, visionary pioneers, and experts in their respective fields. Twice a year, we open the doors for artists and educators to train in our cypher-based teaching methods and proprietary curriculum, working towards BEAT Teaching Certification over the course of one semester. Applicants can choose to train in one of three programs: Beat Rockers (beatboxing), Beat Explorers (freestyle/MCing, creative writing, songwriting, and music production), or Beat Breakers (Bboy/Bgirl).

Welcome to Teach The Teacher!

The semester-long training costs $750, and includes:
● 3-day intensive and interactive training (required for all prospective teaching artists) that runs Wednesday January 25th & Thursday January 26th from 10am-4pm and Friday January 27th from 10am-2pm.
● Committed mentorship from Head Instructor throughout the semester, including weekly check-ins
● Monthly "BEAT Retreats" to grow your skills and build with community.
