For Students

 

Workshop For OPSA Students

Every year, we aim to offer a workshop for students in order to inspire, re-engage, and inform everyone involved. Students gain valuable information from a new voice, teachers observe their students in a new lesson dynamic, and parents find renewed energy in working with their children at home. We bring in master teachers who have excellent reputations and report with families. Be sure to note the dates each year! Teacher workshop participants and community members are welcome to observe these lessons in an effort to help continue improving the music education occurring in and around our community.

Our workshop is usually held over President’s Day weekend in February.
