General

  • Mission:
  • Beats for a Cause is a non-profit musical organization designed to help the community one note at a time. Beats for a Cause is a BoomWhacker band! BoomWhackers are pitched tubes that can be hit on a table in order to play a note. The group consists of a wide array of musicians ranging from high school freshman to seniors. We all have a passion for music.

  • Overview:
  • Over the past 2 months we were able to raise over 500 dollars for different charitable causes.

  • History:
  • By starting Beats for a Cause I was able to mesh my love for music and desire to help people together. My passion for music began early on as a pianist, at the age of seven. I have been in the school band ever since fourth grade, and am now the Tuba/Sousaphone Section Leader for the Freehold Township Marching Band. My fascination with BoomWhackers, however, began in eighth grade. I participated in the Percussion Ensemble in middle school and as our final song in eighth grade we played a piece entitled "Furniture Music". Among the beats and bangs of buckets and chairs in this song, there was one section of the song that featured an excerpt of "Axel F" that was played on BoomWhackers. In approaching high school, my dream was to start a musical group that played on furniture and BoomWhackers. As a freshman at Biotechnology High School I began my expedition by writing a piece using school bells, chairs, and tables. During the summer of freshman year, I decided that I wanted to blossom the established group into something more purposeful and dignified. I wanted to turn the group into something that could impact society. For nearly a year, every Saturday, I have volunteered at a hospital and helped the community. I wanted to do the same with this musical group, help the community. I spent overall roughly 120 hours writing BoomWhacker music for the new group I sought to create. After hours of practice, Beats for a Cause is ready for performing and helping causes one note at a time!
