Beats Bus Records have 3 main forms of mentorship and workshop
We work with young people aged 8-25 that don’t usually have access to the arts that have been referred to us through Pupil Referral Units and Youth Services
We use our Mobile Recording Studio or we set up on site to run creative workshops
We offer fun and engaging creative workshops to community centres to keep their low aged teenagers engaged.
We specialise in bespoke crime reduction workshops in areas of high crime. Clients who are funded by the Home Office and Local authorities hire our services to run engaging weekly workshops with low age teenagers in the hope of reducing anti-social behaviour and crime prevention
Beats Bus Records are regularly contacted by Local Authorities in rural areas to help improve access to the arts in hard to reach areas. Our mobile recording unit can be used to take arts to most rural of places.
Our free mentorship scheme funded by Tudor Trust allows us to mentor 12 young people throughout the year. We teach them all the elements of hip hop and we mentor them through tough transitions in their life. Whether it be going into ‘big school’ or having issues with their social circles Beats Bus will support them with more than music a mentorship. We also use a portion of our Youth Music Recharge Fund to take our members of the mentorship scheme on days out. We have taken our youths to see Hamilton on the West End, The Harlem Globe Trotters and we have an annual trip out to the Middle Child Christmas Panto.
Beats Bus Records have always supported young people in schools. We specialise in supporting those in SEND schools and those who are in full time education. We offer schools songwriting workshops where we encourage the children to create music based on their syllabus or the school’s goals for the children.
Beats Bus Records are proud to announce we have been funded by PHF and Tudor Trust to pilot The Hip Hop School of Excellence. This will be an alternative schooling provision that will support young people that are facing exclusion or leaving schools with below average exam results. This provision will be to reintegrate young people back into education and training and work experience, give them transferable skills and knowledge for employment or enable them to become a self-sufficient artist in their own right.
