Recognizing the confidence, creativity, and discipline that access to a music education can instill, BeatStars is teaming up with organizations Girls Rock Austin and KING (Partnerships for Children) to help provide more music resources to children in the Central Texas area.
Girls Rock Austin and Kids in a New Groove are now officially Beats4Love organizations, which means anyone in the BeatStars community can help bring music education to kids in need simply by selling their beats and services. BeatStars has also committed $10,000 to this initiative.

About Girls Rock Austin

Beginning in 2007, Girls Rock Austin has worked to improve the music community through youth camps and aid initiatives. From virtual programs to charity music festivals to Rock Retreats, Girls Rock Austin has opportunities for musicians of all ages and experience levels. 

Inspired by the need to give young girls the ability to see themselves represented in all areas of the music industry, Girls Rock’s camp offers education in music skills as well as STEM related subjects, self-care and social justice. Taught by women, trans and non-binary musicians in Austin, Texas, students can learn how to express themselves through guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, and vocals in a variety of genres and styles.

Furthermore, the organization’s Operation: Lunch Box efforts help provide access to nutritious meals to the Austin community who have been affected by food insecurity during the pandemic. Since the program began, Girls Rock Austin has helped provide over 100,000 meals to those in need.
