Our mission is to shape the next wave of creative music-makers to reflect and preserve the values, passions, and skills that we hold dear. We understand there are systematic imbalances in the industry and we want to offer our community and our experience to everyone who would benefit by being a part of it.
What this means is that even if you are unable to pay for our program, we still really want you to apply. As a team, we routinely donate into our scholarship pool and we make an attempt to open scholarship seats regularly in our labs.
If you are interested in a scholarship seat in one of Beat Kitchen's music production programs, please tell us about yourself and which course you are interested in taking. Please take a moment to reflect upon our pricing, the length of the course and then how much you are reasonably able to pay. Our long-term goal is to be able to offer one or two subsidized seats in each lab (once we have enough students enrolled that we can do so).
Tuition can be a particular barrier to students who are Black, Indigenous, racialized, gendered, disabled, Queer, trans, underrepresented, oppressed and minoritized. We want these voices in our community and we tend to direct scholarship hours to such individuals, but anyone for whom tuition is a barrier is encouraged to apply and 'pay what you can'. We also urge our existing community to consider donating time or money to help us make this dream a reality.
Our scholarship program is self-funded with time that our community has lovingly donated. It is also subsidized by our generous partners and even by some of our students! We also ask that students who are able to do so consider donating (time or money) to redistribute wealth, skills, and our collective talents. Please reach out if you would like to learn how you can help!
Working together, we can realize a dream — shaping an impactful, imaginative, transformative artistic future based on principles of creativity, empathy, and justice — for ourselves and for those in need!
PLEASE CONSIDERING HELPING US SPONSOR A SCHOLAR
