About


About
Strive School of Music was founded in Memphis, Tennessee & has been empowering students through music education for over 5 years. We believe every child is deserving & capable of a bright future.

Through music, we ignite development skills, teach patience, & build confidence. Strive students come to us in a variety of ways. Music lessons, after-school care programs, and our annual Strive Summer Camp. We offer in-person & virtual services. It has been our pleasure to adapt with the circumstances created by the pandemic and continue to adequately connect with our students virtually when needed.


Meet The Founder


Meet The Founder
Founder, Kenton Jackson, wanted to impact children & decided the best way he could encourage young minds would be through music. Initially, he went to college for computer engineering. It was when he began working as an educator for the school system that he discovered his passion for empowering others. When Mr. Jackson combined his love of music and passion for helping others, Strive School of Music was born.

Fun fact: Mr. Jackson did not learn to play the piano until he was an adult. He then started playing for churches and is now the Minister of Music for Grace Temple Ministries.
