Nashville recording artists Andrea Crisalli and Dominique Ruiz of the country music duo Dixie Jade held a masterclass and performance with Camden County High School guitar and band students in September. They discussed their lives as musicians and performers and the creative process and performed a few songs for students.

"Having the members of Dixie Jade gave our students direct access to not only first class performers but to a wealth of real world knowledge of how music is created, marketed in popular music,” said Chris Whitehurst, the high school’s band director. “We brought Nashville into our classroom!”
