The 40-year-old “You Can’t Stop The Feeling” singer has been working with a group of very lucky students at Stax Music Academy in Memphis, Tennessee, and now shares some highlights from his Zoom classes on Instagram. In a series of online sessions, Timberlake shared some secrets he learned working in the industry and also guided students as they wrote and produced songs.

“I am so proud of these amazing @staxmusicacademy students; I was blown away again this year and I’m happy we were able to make this show work even though we couldn’t do it in person, ”Timberlake captioned his post. “After many approaches, it is clear that this group of students has really taken their art to the next level.”
“It is an honor to be a part of this … and to witness the progress,” he added. “You are all so talented.”
Timberlake says he hopes these clips will inspire “any young person interested in making music to keep working and collaborating.”

The students even managed to impress Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel. “I was playing a lot of these ideas and my wife was hanging around the house, and I played this one. [song] and she was like, ‘What is that ?!’ ”He told the class, referring to one of the student’s songs. “So you have something that’s getting people’s attention from the beginning, so I think keeping their attention with that tune will be, sorry, pun, key here.”
