Why Pulse Beat Music?

Simply put, Pulse Beat music delivers exceptional quality and flexibility at a great value. Our programs are curriculum-based and meet during the school day. They are extremely versatile and a great fit for schools that do not have a music teacher, or who want to supplement their existing music offerings.


Arts partners play a vital role in bridging the gap that is so often found with arts education in today’s schools. Working with a community arts partner like Pulse Beat Music allows for year-long, standard-based programs, that can offer much more financial flexibility than a full-time position. Our programs are world music based and can be tailored for all ages, from early childhood to High School. Typically, all classes in the school have music once per week and participate in at least one recital. Documentation of the final work is available upon request and can be a great tool to showcase the talents in your school!

Pulse Beat Music Vision


Global Music Exposure


Our Vision is to bring music to everyone, regardless of their experience and resources. We see music as a fundamental way people connect with others and cultivate their creativity, community, and environment. Music has shown to improve academics, social and emotional learning, and it can create benefits that last a lifetime. Our goal is to inspire students to value the arts, empower them to play and to incorporate music into their lives.

Our teachers and performers are working professionals who bring a rich array of

real world experiences to the classroom. Each teaching artist serves as a positive example for our students.


Early Childhood

Early Childhood is an extremely rewarding time to begin music exploration. Programs at this level include exploration and exposure to instruments, sounds, artists and musical styles of all kinds. Self-expression and creativity naturally come out through music. Songs are also a great way to develop speech cognition and reinforce early educational concepts.



Elementary grade levels are when the real foundation of musical skills begin developing. Concepts are explored more in-depth. Execution and complexity increase incrementally along with the overall development of the students. Emphasis is placed on building the skill of listening and working in a group This is a time when we start performing and presenting for an audience, and most classes participate in at least one recital.

Early Childhood



High School

High School music students are at a level where they can start to take on full-fledged musical pieces. Skills specific to certain musical disciplines are honed and developed as students begin to take ownership over their abilities and engage more with their own self-expression. 

Subtler aspects of listening and ensemble roles emerge, as do advanced concepts such as phrasing, improvisation and solos
