WHO WE ARE

Inspiring Younger Generations with Music

F2F Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Public Non-Profit Performing Arts Organization founded by prominent recording artist and professional Hammond Organist, Vel Lewis, to further the development of music students. He believes that music enriches the lives of individuals.​

Access to high quality, continuous music instruction from the introductory to the mastery level provides the opportunity for youth to develop the skills, discipline, and focus that will enrich their lives and give them the tools to be a positive force in the world around them. F2F Music Foundation desires that all youth are able to pursue continuous and rigorous training in music to their highest level of interest and ability while striving for the best academic achievements possible.

 

 

OUR STORY

PROGRAMS

Jazz and classical music are two genres that are present in various forms of music. F2F Music Foundation wishes to inspire students who are interested in music with the gift of having their own instrument and performing with it on stage with well-known music personalities while becoming educated about jazz music in the United States and its influences around the world. With this in mind, the F2F Music Foundation has developed innovative programs to help young students musically and academically.

F2F Music Foundation works with local non-profit organizations and schools to identify and provide instruments to gifted, disadvantaged youth who are unable to afford their own instruments.

CLINICS & WORKSHOPS:

Clinics and workshops will be held throughout the year to allow our young music students the opportunity to see and learn directly from guest speakers and guest recording artists in an informal, two-hour session.

JAZZ MUSIC FESTIVAL & CONCERTS

F2F organizes jazz concerts and an annual jazz festival to initiate community engagement and to give our students the chance to showcase their talents. Selected students will be given the opportunity to perform on stage, alongside international and national recording artists.

Orientation

INTERNATIONAL MUSIC PROGRAM

Music exchanges allow groups of young musicians to experience traditional culture abroad for short periods of time. We at F2F believe in the importance of experiencing diverse musical cultures and styles, and we aim to provide this to disadvantaged youth who otherwise may not be able to experience this. Not only will this help them to develop musically, but it will help students develop personally, having experienced diverse perspectives other than their own.
