Classroom Jams – Music to the brain.

Are you in the habit of listening to music often enough? Well, what if you could educate yourself in English literature with music? By listening to the plays of Shakespeare plays in a musical symphony.

This musical symphony was written and published by the publishing house Classroom jams. The musical maestro Mark Furigay is behind the creation of the brand.

The brand saw an expansion in other subjects like Social Sciences and English as well as science. Even If the idea sold to the sharks well, they were not able to leverage it to the potential it had.

Who is the founder of Classroom Jams?

Mark Furigay is a simpleton, who comes from Chicago Illinois. He thought he could revolutionize the way kids knew about Shakespeare. He developed songs written by him for each of the plays Shakespeare and backed it with music.

He is a high school English teacher. He believes his product will allow every child to learn literature and the language in a much easier and more jovial way forward.   

Did Classroom Jams get a deal on Shark Tank?

The co-founder of Classroom Jam started his shark tank pitch with a musical note by playing an album of his product to the Sharks, who were quite impressed. He told them about the future prospects of the company for expansion.

Later Kevin is the first one to make the deal. Firstly, he asks Mark to leave the stage in order to discuss the deal. Next, the battle starts with negotiation and gets brutal.

 Kevin tells Marc his deal is $250,000 for 5% royalty and 100% of the company. Mark seems concerned so he’s about to make a counteroffer. Robert makes a deal of $250,000 for 51% for Mark to buy back 49%. Mark said that he would like the deal to consist of all the sharks. He still is persuaded to take the original deal after quite a mature discussion he finally accepts the deal made by all the sharks. The sharks felt they had struck gold.
