Hi everyone,

We are having a wonderful week, and just wanted to take a moment to share some good news with you. Since we outgrew our usable space at our former location on Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road, two core components of our business, recording and performances, have been on hold over the past year as we have been working diligently on up-fitting the new spaces. Today, I'm thrilled to let you know that our Recording Studio at Treynorth is now open and our Performance Theater at the Palace has passed the final inspection and is ready for live performances and events. We truly appreciate all of your contributions and continued support during this time, and wanted to take a moment to thank you as we are putting on the finishing touches on the new and improved Creative Ej.

CREATIVE EJ SERVICES

Recording Studio
If you have ever wanted to record yourself, or take an audio engineering class, now is the time. We are now scheduling recording sessions for projects of all sizes, budgets, and styles of music in our digital recording studio. Examples of recording sessions can be as simple as a vocalist singing to an instrumental / karaoke type of track to a full piece band recording a CD. These are great gifts for family, friends, auditions, or even promoting your talents.

Event Venue
Are you looking for a location for your next event? Our performance theater at The Palace is now available to rent for Video Shoots, Live Recording, CD Release Parties, Concerts, Corporate Events, Worship Activities, and more.

CREATIVE EJ PROGRAMS

Instruction
Creative Ej offers individual lessons for all contemporary instruments. We also offer group instruction for your entire band or worship team. All of our lesson rooms are equipped with amps, effects, sound systems, drums, and a computer system with access to a huge library of music, backing tracks, videos, and other instructional materials. Our instructors are highly skilled professional musicians that use the methods that the pros use to learn how to play.

Adult Jams
If you are an adult that loves music, and plays an instrument or sings, please let us know. We would like to create an Adult Jam session twice a month, if there is enough interest. This is just for fun, so please don't worry if you haven't played your instrument in a while, or may not be playing at the level you want.

Audio Engineering Class
Are you fascinated with sounds? Love technology? Play with home recording software? If so, check out our Audio Engineering class. Ryan Merritt, a Full Sail University Graduate, will be conducting an 8 week introductory class for Audio Engineering. Class size is limited to 8, since it will have some hands on components.

Family Jams
Do you come from a musical family? Several of our students enjoy playing music along with other family members. If you want to meet other musical families, while jamming with your own, join us for Family Jams.

Glee Choir
If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, and love to sing, please stop by Mondays from 5pm to 6pm to check out our Glee Choir. They will be performing in the community and participating in an upcoming competition.

Quarterly Showcases
Quarterly Showcases are a core part of our program, and truly a great way to strengthen your musical abilities while having an opportunity to perform in front of others. Plus, it is just plain fun. Our new Performance Theater is the largest one at The Palace Theater in Cornelius, and equipped with a full stage and extensive lighting. Our students are encouraged to participate in our upcoming Spring Showcase on April 9th at 5pm.

Rock Band Auditions
We will be holding Rock Band auditions at The Palace in mid-April. All levels and ages are welcome to audition. The two audition songs are I Love Rock & Roll by Joan Jett and Holiday by Green Day. Please make sure you know a Verse and Chorus of each song, if interested in auditioning. Your instructor will be happy to assist you in learning the song.

If interested in any of the programs above, please respond to this email, so we can forward you more information.
