Meet the Founder


As the founder of Strive School of Music, an employee of Shelby County Schools, the Minister of Music for Grace Temple Ministries, and a father of two, it comes as no surprise that Kenton Jackson deeply values investing in children. A student himself, he is pursuing his masters in Music Education. Mr. Jackson aspires to expand Strive School of Music, allowing him to increase his impact on the youth of Memphis. Between Strive's year-round music programs and the 7 week summer camp program, you will find Mr. Jackson empowering his students to strive for a better future.
