The Oneonta Pop Music Experience

OPME is for musicians in middle and high school who have played an instrument such as bass, guitar, keyboard or drums or have sung in a structured setting for at least two years.  Younger students may enroll if they have studied this long and can do well at engaging in music activities for each of our full camp days.

OPME is designed to provide a wide range of pop music experience, from music theory and instrument instruction to group combo and performance. Each day we will follow a rough outline of activities, but we leave plenty of room for exploration and musical fun.
