The Beat Bus is a transformative learning vehicle delivering music education to underserved youth across New Jersey. Our mission is to bring this mobile recording studio classroom to schools and community centers for a day of experiential learning or multi-week training programs that will inspire students to put their energy towards positive, creative outcomes.


Imagine a recording studio, equipped with all the latest technical wizardry, pulling up to your school/community. “For class today, we’re making a beat.” Now that sounds engaging! On board the Beat Bus, creative self expression is blended with personalized learning. Remix Shakespeare with a trap beat or find out what Ms. Smith sounds like when she raps the times tables— the educational possibilities are endless...


Music is meant to be a shared experience. Our studio on wheels provides an atmosphere for collaborative project based learning and a safe way for young people to express themselves. On the Beat Bus, everyone is a creator. And the best part? The coolest field trip of the year never left the parking lot.


The Beat Bus is a program within the Music Saved My Life youth music education initiative, a partnership between the Asbury Park Music Foundation and Lakehouse Music Academy. We specialize in creating custom workshops personalized to meet specific community needs and learning objectives. Whether it's a one time exploratory workshop or a multi-week cross curricular class - the Beat Bus can deliver on demand.
