Korey JaMalle Bowie grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of musical, faith-filled parents whose love for music and the arts influenced Korey to follow in their footsteps. At the early age of 13, Korey began to explore his interest in writing and music production. His interest developed into a passion and led him to follow thru and complete his B.M. (Bachelor’s of Music) in Audio Recording Technology at Georgia State University in 2005.
Korey accepted an exciting teaching position at Atlanta’s New Schools at Carver – School of the Arts. Carver was considered one of the worst schools in Atlanta at the time and had one of the worst dropout rates in the Country. Under a new program, the school would be broken up into four smaller schools where Korey was invited to participate in developing a brand new curriculum as the Music Technology and Audio Recording Instructor. Korey poured his heart and soul into developing the curriculum for his students and helped them soar in the process. Bowie’s 2009 senior class were the first students to graduate from the four-year music curriculum that he helped to design.
“Korey is an artist and educator who performs and teaches with passion. He is truly a modern day ‘Picasso’ of music.”Dr. Marvin A. Pryor – Principal - Carver School of the Arts
