ABOUT STUART’S OPERA HOUSE AFTERSCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAM (AMP)

Stuart’s Opera House’s Afterschool Music Program (AMP) is a music program that exists to support and foster young people who are interested in learning how to play a variety of instruments and form bands. Students typically focus on the genre(s) of music they personally gravitate toward, such as rock, pop, r&b, folk, hip-hop, country, electronic, or experimental music. Students are provided instruction in guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, and drums with potential for additional instruments as well.

AMP provides crucial out-of-school arts enrichment that incorporates musical components with other artistic disciplines. A place for young adults to gain confidence and build skills through music, all levels of musicianship are welcome as students explore all instruments related to the genre(s) of their choosing in a group setting. The program’s goal is to provide an enlivening opportunity to work together as a team, celebrate diversity and creativity with kids by teaching basic music skills, and giving them hands-on experience with all instruments.

ABOUT STUART’S AFTERSCHOOL AUDIO PRODUCTION PROGRAM:

Stuart’s Opera House has created a program of study for students in Southeast Ohio designed to teach the basic skills of audio production in the modern recording studio environment. Students will learn the basics of analog and digital production tools and techniques to record performances. Additionally, students will learn how to mix and prepare music for release into contemporary listening mediums, such as streaming, digital download, CD, and vinyl. The program meets a number of objectives and standards set by the Ohio Department of Education and national Common Core Standards. Standards include Music, Fine Arts, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Technology.
