Jeanetta C. Powell

"Music is a universal language that embodies the human spirit. It is a powerful tool for personal growth, connection, and empowerment." - Jeanetta Powell

Me, Music, and Making a Difference

They say music is a universal language, and I couldn't agree more. Growing up in Memphis, it was the soundtrack to my life, and thanks to my amazing family, it was always filled with love and support. My uncle, the legendary jazz pianist Rozelle Claxton, even opened my eyes to the beauty of classical music – talk about cool family connections, right?

That love for music just kept growing, and I explored different genres with incredible teachers like Linda Herring for gospel and Mary Ann Snyder for viola. By the time I got to Overton High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, music wasn't just a passion, it was a part of who I was. Playing in those competitive orchestras taught me the value of hard work and dedication, lessons that stayed with me long after graduation.

College at Jackson State University was an amazing experience. I wasn't just learning, I was performing in the university's Symphony Orchestra and even accompanying the choir. It was there that I truly found my voice, both literally and figuratively. By the time I walked across that stage with my degree in Music Education, I knew I wanted to share that love of music and its power to empower others, especially young girls.

That's why I started Bull City Music School. It's not just about learning scales and notes, it's about fostering a love for music, building confidence, and instilling the values of respect and self-belief. But my passion for helping young people goes beyond the walls of Bull City. I also share my love for music with students at the NC School of Math and Science and the International Montessori School.

And let's not forget about giving back to the community! I'm actively involved with organizations like Jack and Jill of America, Inc., and a proud member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. These amazing groups allow me to connect with others who share my commitment to empowering young girls and creating positive change.

Who is  Jeanetta Powell?  Music teacher, community advocate, and someone who believes in the power of music to uplift, inspire, and help young people, especially girls, discover their voices and reach their full potential. Now, let's get out there and make some beautiful music together!


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
