Musician on a Mission 

Founder/CEO Jim Gaven has written and released over 2 dozen albums worth of music (solo project, and in the bands Postmark Twain, Age of Wisdom, and Mouth of Wilson). His solo project's music is reminiscent of artists John Mayer, Third Eye Blind, and the Goo Goo Dolls. He is a registered composer and publisher with the performing rights organization, BMI, where his music can be heard in 6 of the 7 continents across the world in TV shows/commercials/background and in-store radio retail channels, and in-flight entertainment systems. 

His work with developmentally disabled adults across the state of NJ is creating a meaningful, non-judgmental way for people to express themselves, create something out of nothing, and build confidence, all the while learning basic, intermediate, and, on rare occasions, expert level concepts on guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, percussion, and voice.   

In addition to this, he is a published author, blogger,  writer of children's songs  for lifelong teaching tools, podcaster, and humanitarian whose mission is to make a positive difference in the world by improving the quality of life (especially through music).
