Teen Pulse : Teaching Responsibility Through Music

Youth performing arts organization, Teen Pulse is on a mission to teach social responsibility through the arts.  Founder Skye (‘Coach K’) Kooyman started Teen Pulse while she was still in high school to create a feeder program for her high school drumline.  In college, she went on to study music education, earned her degree and teaching credential, and grew Teen Pulse in southern California throughout those years.  She is now working on creating percussion and student leadership programs that can be completed online via Skype.

Teen Pulse has grown into a drumline, color guard, novelty percussion, stomp, music theory, and jazz improv program that travels to multiple schools in the Inland Empire.

Coach K states “By continuing to exponentially spread our reputation for guiding teens who are usually labeled as "problems" into being positively contributing citizens of society, Teen Pulse will one day be bigger than Boy Scouts.  When our alumni apply for jobs and/or college, being associated with Teen Pulse will make a huge impact.”

Teen Pulse had Custom Sticker Makers print up some stickers for them, why? “Teenagers LOVE stickers!” says Coach K, who went on to explain that she chose CSM because “Everything was pretty easy and self-explanatory and our stickers came out perfectly.”

What a way to support the youth of today! We applaud Teen Pulse for positively impacting the lives of so many young people! Find out more about this wonderful organization at
