Aug 7th - 11th - Performance Camp Fairmont State University (with concert TBA)
• This program is geared toward players of all ages (8-adult) and musical abilities! Students meet for group lessons to create a set of music to be performed at a public concert at the end of the week. Students meet for two hours a day (M-F) for one a week (10 hours of instruction). PopShop staff members carefully create groups based on age, ability and musical interests. Instructors provide musical instruction and impart the importance of teamwork, creative expression, and self confidence.
* A minimum of 4 players needed to form class. Rehearsals take place on the Fairmont State University campus with full PA and "backlined instruments" (drums, keyboards, amplifiers, PA system, microphones) provided for students.
Learn Music! PopShop, located in Morgantown, WV, is a non profit music academy founded with the belief that popular music styles (rock, pop, country, punk, etc.) can be a vehicle to teach traditional musical concepts. PopShop is dedicated to providing a quality music education while working to help nurture artistic and personal growth in students of all ages.
Have Fun! While music education is at the center of PopShop's mission, classes are designed for members to enjoy the learning experience! Students collaborate in order to choose the songs, and work to assemble a set of music to be presented at public concert events.
Rock Out! At the conclusion of a PopShop session, band members take to the stage for live performances to showcase each student's talent and hard work. Live performances are ofter used to help highlight other charitable causes in our community and raise funds for these same organizations. PopShop teaches that art is not only important for personal expression, but that it can be used to help others in need.
