RSA Live!

Join us for RSA Live!, the best virtual music workshops for students 

Music connects and brings people together. The pandemic caused feelings of isolation and loneliness for many. Everyone needs a safe and warm environment to bring the joy of music back into their lives. Join us this 2022 for our Rebel Song Academy Live! program, the most compelling and illuminative virtual music course for students.

Hosted by Art As Mentorship, a non-profit focused on bringing music and opportunity to kids in Kansas City and all over the world, RSA Live! is the virtual sister-program to our in-person, 12-week music camp: the Rebel Song Academy. Both programs seek to foster and nourish musical skill in young artists, as well as teach the next generation how to express themselves and learn valuable life skills. 

The story behind the Rebel Song Academy Live!

Founded in 2020 by Art As Mentorship director Enrique Chi, the Rebel Song Academy Live! was launched to be a sister virtual course to our in-person Rebel Song Academy. In a time where people needed each other more than ever, and yet had to be apart, we found that an online music course could bridge the gap of separation. 

Featuring famous guest teachers | More than just a virtual music course for students

Now in its third year of operation, RSA Live! has blossomed into something more than just a virtual music course. Hosting various guests and industry professionals, it is a chance for students and aspiring young artists to directly communicate and learn from some of today’s top artists. 

The Rebel Song Academy Live! hosts internationally renowned guest mentors to work directly with young artists of all backgrounds, empowering them, through music, to write their own success stories. Mentors in the past have included Kevin Morby, Briston Maroney, Beach Bunny, and Jake Luppen from Hippo Campus! To see our full 2021 lineup, visit our Instagram page!
