Pulse Beat Music programs include performances, workshops, residencies, and private lessons. Programs are built to meet your needs, budget and timeline. One approach is not right for everybody, so we tailor our classes and workshops to meet the specific needs of all our partners. 


Arts partners play a vital role in bridging the gap that is so often found in the arts 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 focus on both traditional and popular music from around the world and can be adapted to any age level. We work with early childhood, elementary, high school, university and adult.

After School




The Birthplace of Rhythm is our signature show, which brings to life traditional music and drums from across the globe. Explore music, instruments and songs from cultures around the world.

The Birthplace of Rhythm is an interactive performance featuring percussion music and instruments from around the world. Traditional music highlights the many ways that people around the world come together through music and community celebration.

In addition to being exciting and entertaining, learning about music from different cultures helps to highlight and amplify our similarities, so we can understand and appreciate our differences. Exploring cultural music can open new perspectives, and be the source of a whole new level of understanding and inspiration.


The Pulse Beat Music curriculum is standards-based and meets during the school day. Residencies are very versatile and are a great fit for schools that do not have a music teacher, or who want to supplement their existing music programs. Teaching artists can be in residence for a limited engagement or a whole school year.
