The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville will host Regi Wooten for his “My Approach to Music” seminar on April 5th at 1:00 pm.
“Less than a mile from Music Row, we provide for a growing congregation from all walks of life and offer a spiritual haven for Nashville's artists,” says Corinne Sullivan, president of the Nashville Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre, “in that regard, we fulfill our unique purpose to help those who entertain, fashion and take care of the world.”
That is why the church will host a seminar by the oldest of the Wooten Brothers, Regi, on his approach to delivering a great performance. He says, “The key is to have fun. So keep your music fun-key.”
Regi Wooten’s signature guitar style of chording, slapping, tapping and frenzied strumming has earned him world-wide notoriety and comparisons to Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Chuck Berry, according to jeffcenter.org. In recent years, Wooten has performed with many artists including the legendary Ginger Baker. He is known worldwide as “The Teacher,” and currently teaches music in Nashville, TN. He was teaching his little brothers Joseph and Victor when he was only 9 years old.
Regi has played alongside his brothers since they were young, and for over four decades the Wooten Brothers have been recognized as some of the most innovative musicians in existence. The brothers have been a musical tour-de-force redefining the limits of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock and bluegrass. Their early years were spent living in different states including Hawaii, California, and Virginia where they shared stages with the likes of Curtis Mayfield, The Temptations, Ramsey Lewis, Stephanie Mills, War and other artists. In the mid 1980s, the brothers released an album as The Wootens for Clive Davis’ Arista Records.
Wooten’s seminar will be April 5th at 1:00 pm in the community room of the Nashville Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre. There is no cost to the seminar, but reservations are requested. Call the church at 615-687-4600 for more information.
