Creative Ej at NAMM
Creative Ej owner - Jeff Gastineau was the featured speaker at two seminars during the recent NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. Jeff conducted seminars on integrating technology in music instruction, and maintaining student motivation at the show's NAMM University Idea Center. He also participated in a panel discussing innovative ways to promote music education through bands, camps, and other activities.

NAMM, the trade association of the international music products industry, reported 85,799 registrants and 1,505 exhibitors at this year’s show.

The high-energy event featured performances by Yamaha artist Alicia Keys, who launched a new product line at the show, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, and Billy Bob Thornton & the Boxmasters. Celebrity appearances included Gene Simmons, who offered retailers marketing advice at the opening “Breakfast of Champions” NAMM University session, and Steve Vai, who launched a new amplifier with Carvin.

Themed “Come Together,” the show offered attendees the opportunity to reunite with industry peers, learn the latest business and marketing tactics and trends at daily NAMM University sessions, and ultimately make their biggest business deals for the year ahead.

LET THE PERFORMER SHINE
SCHOOLS HELP STUDENTS POLISH THEIR TALENTS

By Barbara J. Mayer | Photos By Richard Rudisill April 2008

The popularity of TV shows such as “American Idol” and “Dancing with the Stars” is evidence of strong interest in the performing arts. That interest has led to rising enrollments for at least two Lake Norman area schools that specialize in teaching music, dance, drama and visual art to children and adults.

Creative Ej in Huntersville and Masterworks School of the Arts, with locations in Davidson and Mooresville, offer a variety of performance-type lessons. While their students may not become instant stars, they do get many opportunities to perform on-site and in the community. More...
HARNESSING THE CUTTING EDGE,
CREATIVE Ej GETS SMART


Jeff Gastineau, VP of Creative Ej, and their Elite E72 Smart Console running Logic Pro with Pro Tools.

Creative Ej (think ‘Edge’), in North Carolina, was built as a ‘complete music center’ and is designed to provide it’s music students with a wide array of educational options ranging from contemporary music instruction, audio technology and production skills, right through to musicianship and music business affairs.

It’s an ambitious project, featuring a modern 10,000 square foot timber frame building located on a seven acre campus near Charlotte, NC. The facility includes a 200+ seat performance theater, a studio, a host of classrooms, lesson rooms, rehearsal areas, and plans for further expansion throughout the United States.

The studio is based around an Elite E72 Smart console fitted with 24 faders which controls either Logic Pro or Pro Tools, as the need arises. The console is capable of controlling up to 216 channels – so project size is never an issue.

But after the students go home, the recording begins, and the same control room is then used as a professional production studio specializing in surround, multi-media and DVD content as well as full scale band recording. More...
