UpBeat NYC
Youth development through music training

We are so very grateful to WellMet for taking the time to get to know our organization and for supporting our work to bring about positive change in the lives of South Bronx children through musical education and experience.




UpBeat NYC uses the pursuit of musical excellence and ensemble performance to bring about positive changes in the lives of South Bronx children, ages 5-21. UpBeat operates a music center at two sites in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx. The programs are free, instruments are mostly donated and admission is on a first come first served basis. The music center develops social and musical skills through pre-orchestra classes, private lessons, sectionals, ensemble playing, peer mentoring and public performance.
WellMet’s grant of $25,000 will be used for general operating support.
