One of the most gratifying acts of service for Blaze and Kelly is working with children and getting to know communities through educational outreach programs.
Niccole Blaze is a certified teacher K-12 with over 25 years of public and private teaching experience. She still currently teaches guitar lessons and has worked in many experiential educational settings such as; climbing/rope courses, western horse ranch camp, martial arts, health and fitness coaching.
Mo Kelly is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a MA in psychology and over 25 years counseling experience. She has worked in resident facilities, supervisory positions, agencies, state positions and her own private practice.
With this much background combined, these two women know how to work with people with a wide variety of backgrounds. They are enthusiastic about education and are very effective communicators.
Many presenters call outreach programs “residencies”. This is a particular educational program design by the artists that dovetails into their particular art modality. It may look like a private show, questions and answer series, a workshop, and/or participatory activities.
If a residency is needed (which helps off-set funds for some communities) please contact Blaze and Kelly and they will discuss specifics about what your community may need or want.
Programs that they have done are:
Adult Songwriting Workshops (2-3 day events)
Artist Workshops- “Artists Finding Balance”
M.O.P. a Musical Outreach Program to Mop Out Prejudice. (3-8th grade)
Center for Spiritual Living – Special guest speaker
Niccole teaches acoustic and electric guitar lessons. Her fee is 30.00/hr for adults and younger students (depending on focus) 20-40 min. lessons. She has worked with ages 5-72 and keeps it fun and fresh!
Skype lessons are available too! Contact Blaze and Kelly for more details.
There is a spiritual nature to some of Blaze and Kelly’s music. You might notice this on songs like; Life is Beautiful, Thankful, Above the Rain and many more.
These songs fit and help support the messages of Spiritual communities. Blaze and Kelly have played in CSL’s* and UU’s* nationally and would love the opportunity to meet your special community!
The ideology of the Spiritual centers they play for resides mainly in the faith that we are ALL ONE. They have played and sang with Michael Gott and Karen Drucker at the Big Sky Retreat in Montana (2015) and look forward to sharing their message of love and peace with you! Please fill out the booking form or contact them if you have any questions!
