Visit to Otis Redding Singer/Songwriter Camp

Last week, Curtis and Shelley visited Macon, Georgia to be a part of the Otis Redding Singer/Songwriter Camp. Presented by The Big ‘O’ Youth Educational Dream Foundation and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, 29 youth came prepared to make some music!

Students learn about the PULSE website!

Shelley presented a PULSE workshop to campers and counselors, giving them an overview of the method. Highlights from the presentation: Whack-a-Note, Drag-a-Form, interactive Circle of Fifths, One-on-One videos in the Practice Room, and the Notation Mixer.

Curtis and Shelley had a fabulous time with Otis Redding’s daughter, Karla Redding-Andrews, and her family and Lisa Love, Director of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. This is the beginning of a great partnership with The Big “O”, Georgia Music Hall of Fame, and Berklee.
