Education for the Future

YELLOW Studio will offer a highly personalized and immersive education that knits together learning opportunities at school, at home, and in the community. In this way, learning is made hands-on and relevant, aligned to both the future of work and to the unique motivations, interests, and aptitudes of the child.

We make learning personal

Learning at YELLOW Studio is aligned to the future of work and to the unique motivations, interests, and aptitudes of the individual child —

  • Children master foundational knowledge at their own pace
  • Projects are immersive and community-based, driven by children’s interests
  • Learner goals include 21st century competencies, like creativity, communication, and entrepreneurship


Change starts at home and scales to the world, so the first YELLOW Studio will open in Pharrell’s hometown, in or around Virginia Beach, VA in the fall of 2021.

In collaboration with Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) and Georgia Tech, YELLOW is empowering kids across the nation to learn to code through music using the remote coding platform called EarSketch. Bringing creativity together through two languages - music and coding - young people will produce studio quality music as a pathway to advancing their knowledge of Python, Java Script, and computational math.

AFE is a comprehensive childhood-to-career program aimed at increasing access to computer science education for children and young adults from underserved and underrepresented communities.

Your Voice is Power

YELLOW is creating an innovative learning experience and musical competition for students across the country. Through this competition, launching in early 2021, middle and high school students will explore how entrepreneurship, music, and computer science are transformational pathways to racial and social equity.
