Vincent James along with his wife Joann are on a mission to help more children (and adults) reap the educational, therapeutic and social benefits of playing music. They founded the national non-profit Keep Music Alive and two international music holidays: Teach Music Week (March) & Kids Music Day (October) and now partner with 1,000+ music schools and stores every year to offer free lessons to new students and to hold special events that benefit kids playing music. Over two dozen celebrities and music brands support Keep Music Alive ranging from Casio to Remo and Jack Black to Julie Andrews. This musical couple are also authors of the “88 Ways Music” book series, featuring inspirational stories of how music impacted people’s lives, sometimes dramatically. 80% of all “88 Ways Music” proceeds are donated to music education and service non-profits.
