Dan Sabo was teaching junior high band when he saw the opportunity for something cool and new in Edmonton's music lesson landscape. He tested the concept by teaching rock bands and music lessons out of his basement and in January 2012, he and his wife, Nella co-founded Backbeat on Whyte Avenue. Backbeat has grown from an initial 25 students to more than 200 today and has close to 20 rock bands. Students aged six and up can take lessons and there is also a Little Beats preschool option.
