Regi Wooten ‘The Teacher’ Jams with Musicians at Church of Scientology

The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville is proud to announce that Regi Wooten will return for part two of his “My Approach to Music” seminar and jam session this August.

The Church of Scientology recently hosted the oldest of the Wooten Brothers, Regi, for a seminar about his approach to delivering a great performance. It has now been confirmed that Regi will deliver part two of the seminar on August 9th with another follow-up jam session.  

“Our church has a special interest to uplift musicians and other artists as they will lead the culture forward,” says Corinne Sullivan, President of the Nashville Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre, “Regi’s seminar was so popular, as he really helped musicians feel comfortable playing in an entirely different setting than they are used to – it took them out of their comfort zone and into a new level of certainty in their craft.”

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 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 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. 

His seminar provided inspiration to many Nashville artists. One attendee, Elle Boone, said, “The one thing he said that really hit home for me was, ‘You can't create your own identity without putting in the time.’ That really resonated with me.”

Due to popular demand, Wooten is now scheduled for part two of the “My Approach to Music” seminar, scheduled for August 9th.

Wooten says, “The key is to have fun. So keep your music fun-key.”
