OUR PROJECTS

Celebrate Autism Awareness Month with Jazz Hands for Autism

Did you know that the most under-employed demographic in America is adults on the autism spectrum? Many Autistic individuals require a little bit of extra love to find their fit in the workplace, and sometimes even more so in the music world. Jazz Hands for Autism is providing that opportunity for these musicians!

We are happy to support the new Girls Make Beats Jam Lab. 10-year-old DJ Miko was asked during an interview what she’d like to do with all of the skills she was learning at Girls Make Beats. Her response: “I’ll DJ parties and also be the first black female president!”

“Music has helped this population not only help themselves but it has given them a community where their shared experience of having a cancer diagnosis isn’t what binds them, it’s the love of music.”
