Victor Wooten's Center for Music and Nature
Located on the Duck River outside Nashville, TN, the peaceful and natural environment provides a perfect backdrop for introspection, discovery, and community— all of which help students identify and appreciate their individual greatness and potential.
“What does the world need with just another good musician? We have plenty. What the world needs are good people!” ~ Dorothy Wooten
Adhering to the wisdom of Victor’s mother, our unique programs are laced with discussions, games, and exercises designed to open our minds to new ideas and awaken our senses in ways that not only enhance our musical lives, but our personal ones as well. We believe that the time spent improving any skill or craft should also improve our character in ways that help make us (and those around us) “good people.”
