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).
