Born in Trinidad, Jolander Headley, or "Joe", is a multi-faceted entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Joe's Academy of Music. Passion met purpose, as music had been a large part of Jolander's life since an early age.
Following her education in Piano Studies and Music Theory from Juilliard School of Music and Berklee College of Music, Jolander became known to her community for teaching children music. Starting as a home-operation with only a few students to establishing multiple locations throughout New York City, Joe's Academy of Music has grown to be one of the largest privately-owned arts schools in Queens and Brooklyn under the leadership of Jolander. Bringing 26 years of corporate experience, Jolander seeks to continue to expand Joe's Academy of Music to help people of all ages and backgrounds find their rhythm—both in music and in life!
“Our goal when we started was to fill a gap in our community. We are delighted we have made such an impact in the lives of our students.”
