Cedavean Waller and his mother, Charlene, operate a summer camp called "Drums and Dreams'' at the Neighborhood Academy on Millerfield Road. The eight-week camp teaches children in East Macon ages 6-16 to play the drums, read and write music and forms of discipline and regimen. It evolved out of "Streetline,'' a performing group of percussionists from local high school bands that Cedavean started in the 10th grade. Charlene said the camp uses "Streetline" in a different way. "It keeps them off the street and in line,'' she said. At the end of July, the children will perform at a music showcase and fundraiser at the Terminal Station and will be featured as part of Bragg Jam on July 30. Cedavean Waller Special to The Telegraph
