Welcome To the 7th Gen Academy 2016

Happy New Year and Welcome.



Back to Basics!!

    This project has been in existence in various forms for for nearly 25 years.  I have struggled the vision I have been given which is much too large for one person to get off the ground.  So… I decided to take a cue from someone much wiser than myself and Just K.I.S.S 
    K.I.S.S: Keep It simple… Stupid! This version of the 7thGen Music Project/Academy with be much more streamlined, more manageable to allow for a much greater chance of one person succeeding.  This Site and content within will focus on keeping interaction with the audience intimate but at the same time with the intent of cultivating a dream of successfully reaching out to new audiences all over the world.we will be offering content related To being an Indie artist and entrepreneur and I am going to be offering guitar lessons for beginning to intermediate players online through the site.
    I am still dreaming of a day when I can build a school of Music, Media and Art on one or more of the reservations and from those institutions that together we can bring a new era of economic and social growth and success to The reservations and Give Young and struggling native the training and the opportunity for their Voices to be heard by a much greater audience.
