During their visit to the performing arts school, Valory and Cain participated in a question and answer session with over 100 music students, answering a variety of questions from what inspires them to what their biggest learning experiences in life have been.

Cain, Journey’s keyboard player and backing vocalist, offered advice to students by telling them, “Stay inspired by writing something every day and write what’s in your mind and from your heart.” Valory, the band’s bass player, followed Cain’s suggestion by saying, “Find a local musician that inspires and teaches you, and learn to read and write for the instrument you play.”

“The message Jonathan and Ross brought to our students was absolutely positive, inspiring and motivating,” said Bill Swick, music teacher at LVA. “These are the types of messages we want our students to receive from visiting artists who play the roles of heroes and idols. Mr. Cain and Mr. Valory certainly fall into that category.”

Cain also recommended that students have a vision keeper. “My dad was my vision keeper and he always helped me stay the path and always told me, don’t stop believin’.” The legendary band members ended the visit by sharing the story of how their famous song “Don’t Stop Believin’” came to life. The duo then sang the global hit as all of the students and teachers in the auditorium sang along.
