BIZ SHOWCASE: Junction Beats School of Music
Allow your child to foster their own creativity, talent, and appreciation for music at Junction Beats
School of Music! Junction Beats is not your run of the mill music school. The team focuses on enhancing your child’s overall growth by teaching skills rather than just practicing exercises.
Founder of Junction Beats, Joel Jacobs, is eager to share his passion for music, which stems from his experience as a renowned drummer, educator, and music enthusiast. He strives to combine his performance expertise with his extensive knowledge of musical styles including Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop, Pop, and World Music to create an incredible, artistically charged learning environment for students of all ages and interests.
The study of a musical instrument has been proven to advance cognitive development, self-regulation, discipline and emotional intelligence. Students develop confidence and create lifelong friendships and collaboration opportunities in a supportive and creative community. Through initiatives like the rock band program, kids work together to create a band which promotes problem-solving, creativity, and teamwork.
Junction Beats instructors use an outside-the-box approach to teaching. Each student experiences a customized lesson plan adapted to their own unique strengths and interests. A comprehensive education of their instrument comprising of technique, rudiments and foundational skills are important aspects of their training. By mentoring students and motivating them to explore their musical interests, the team fosters a culture of open artistic freedom and expression. So whatever the goal, be it working out complex emotions, honing social skills, or simply upping their guitar game, Junction Beats will meet their needs. As a result, students are able to perform and move beyond just learning an instrument – they become a part of the music scene in London, Ontario!
On Saturday June 22nd, from 2:00 – 8:00 pm, join this amazing community of musicians and artists as they kick off the inaugural JUNCTION BEATS FEST. This all-ages event will be jam packed with a variety of live music performances by students, teachers and other professional musicians. There will also be food trucks and local vendors. Donations will be accepted and all funds raised will provide music lessons to youth that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford them. Joel and his faculty believe all kids deserve the right to rock! www.junctionbeats.com
