To celebrate one of the pilot programs for the Music Technology Grant, Taylor Guitars artist, Juke Ross, led a masterclass at the High School for Public Service in Brooklyn.

He performed his hit, “Colour Me,” along with a cover of the Backstreet Boys’ song, “I Want It That Way.”

During a Q&A, he talked about how he was in medical school for two years until he decided to change his career. While it was difficult for his family to accept at first, they did over time when they saw how serious and passionate he was about it. He may not be a doctor, but he heals people through another important outlet—music.

A group of students then performed an original song for Juke’s feedback. Juke and the rest of the audience loved it!

Thank you to Juke, Taylor Guitars who also donated an acoustic guitar to all four schools part of the Music Tech Grant pilots, and IOMAXIS for their leadership support!
