Seeing a need for a vibrant arts program in the community where he had taught elementary school, Justin founded his full-service music company at 7000 Rivertown Road. Since its inception, Music from the Heart Fine Arts has obtained licensing as a fine arts school and serves as the featured music program for several Fulton County arts and cultural centers. Serving over 500 students, the music company has also implemented studio “beats” classes in several metro Atlanta schools and has added a second studio at 1550 Senoia Road in Tyrone.
Music from the Heart also organizes and performs at exclusive events, scores theatrical plays and aids students in obtaining scholarships. The company also recently directed and adapted the music for the award-winning stage play, “Cindy the Musical,” written and directed by Emmy-nominated Stepp Stewart, with the African American Philharmonic Orchestra at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center.
The belief that “music develops the essence of the human heart and creates an experience that surpasses natural understanding,” sets the foundation for Justin’s Music from the Heart Fine Arts school and is a clear representation of his passion. From his humble beginnings of playing instruments in church, to founding a company making a significant impact on the community, Justin is certainly a standout individual whose altruism and enthusiasm for the world of music will not go unnoticed.
