“The Rebel Song Academy has been an awesome program to be a part of because it allowed me to learn how to work with musicians of different skill levels, different music interests and different backgrounds so now I’m able to adapt and work with any type of artist. It taught me how to take the lead on projects where I might have never wanted to before or thought I could, it taught me leadership.”

Celebrating the success of our




$250,000+ in funds raised! 

Last year we set out on our MAKE WAVES campaign and asked the community to help us do three things:

  • Move into a new programming space
  • Build a recording studio for our students
  • Launch a multi-cultural festival in Kansas City

We had no idea where we would land but we are so proud to announce that we have successfully accomplished all three of our goals! For those of you that participated in a big way to make this possible you are celebrated on our studio walls on Gold and Platinum Art as Mentorship records. We are so incredibly grateful.
