While his school has expanded its curriculum to include all kinds of music such as classical, pop, and country, at the heart of it all is joy. Mays’ philosophy is that he wants people to enjoy the art form and he wants to present it in a way that’s enjoyable. Says Mays, “Students are getting the opportunity to work on music that they’re hearing on the radio or streaming. It’s fun and that motivates them.” With decades of performing and recording in New York City and London, a business degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and experience in the corporate world, his life experiences came together to serve a new purpose. “I felt I was making a bigger impact on music and people’s lives through music education.”
