JBFF JAMP
– James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils is a musical village which offers students an exciting and unique opportunity to learn the history of James Brown, participate in music programs, network with children from around the world, attend educational workshops, field trips, receive key information from guest speakers in the music industry. Students are taught music theory, to read music, write their own songs and play a musical instrument.

A Career in the Entertainment Industry – Most children are unaware of the many diverse opportunities that exist within the music industry. We will partner with colleges and universities nationwide to create a music career awareness campaign for students who are interested in pursuing a career in the music and entertainment industry. The campaign will also include a promotional tour with upcoming performing artists.

JBFF Tribute Song – A collaboration of A-list entertainers, upcoming artists and producers will create a tribute song to the legacy of James Brown. High school and college students will have a behind the scenes view of what is involved in a recording of this magnitude. Proceeds from the song would be used to fund music programs.
