Our Music Production program teaches students the fundamentals of beat-making, pre-production, and audio engineering, offering technology-focused musical experiences beyond the scope of a traditional arts curriculum. By providing real-world, hands-on experience with professional software and technology, this program prepares youth for college, an internship, or a career in the music industry – maybe even a position at The Motivational Edge!

Our multipurpose studio and gallery space allows youth to create, display and/or perform their works of art, while enabling the Campus to welcome community events such as Art Basel, Art Miami, and other local festivals and exhibitions. This highly versatile space allows youth to build self-confidence through the exhibition and celebration of their own works, as well as engage with the wider Miami artistic community, offering opportunities for networking, discovery, and endless imagination.

In conjunction with our arts programs, which have demonstrated improvement in students’ academic success, we provide youth with opportunities for homework assistance, test prep, and general tutoring to assist with any core subject, assignment, or project. Our instructors work with youth not only to improve academic performance, but also to set personal goals, incorporate creative activities, and motivate long-term success. At our new Allapattah Campus, students receiving a C or below in a core subject are required to participate in our tutoring programs, ensuring that they are motivated to succeed and preparing them for a brighter future.
