2022 SUMMER 




The Breed Academy was Founded by multi-platinum selling and Grammy Nominated producers Aaron Rogers and Rashad Johnson. 

The Breed Academy is the Non-Profit arm of The Breed Entertainment, a production company who has worked with the likes of Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Rotimi, Tee Grizzley and many more!

Using their platform and influence, Aaron and Rashad were compelled to create an arts and educational empire that would interrupt the traditional educational institution by using the arts & entertainment industry to close the education gap and ultimately grow future creative leaders and entrepreneurs of the world.

Although the state Of Connecticut has a thriving Creative Economy, little to none of those jobs and economic advantages are offered in Black & Brown and low income communities across our state.  $9.3Billion is generated annually in Ct by the creative economy but very little money is going back into the community to create resources for young aspiring black and brown creatives and emerging artists.
The Breed Academy was created to expose young emerging artists, particularly black and brown artists in underinvested communities, to the music and Entertainment industry . In a community that is too often corrupted by violence and drugs, we developed  a career training and workforce program that will help to impact our students in transformational ways. At the Breed Academy, we provide Access to resources, hands on training, workforce placement and arts and educational opportunities needed to be competitive in the music and entertainment industry. Our goal is to  nurture the dream and provide support for black and brown emerging artists and others from low income communities that are battling circumstances in life that often deter them from success without giving them an equitable chance to be competitive within society. Giving back to our community is at the heart of everything we have worked so hard to accomplish. We are looking forward to helping you discover who you are, where  you come from and where you are destined to be when you choose the right path.
