Join OMA Kid Bands and Band Workshops
Springtime PLAY March 27-June
Thanks for dropping by to see our after-school offerings. We're excited to offer pickup groups from Franklin and Love Elementary Schools starting in March of 2023!
Join us as we develop mindful musicianship playing in ensembles, improvising, studying form, melody, chords and many more possiblities!
Kids build teamwork skills, have fun, learn rehearsal strategies, and develop their musician's mindfulness on the way to seasonal concerts while studying one or more instruments from the modern bandstand.
