OTTA currently hosts a music LAB which now gives access to other amazing programs and skill sets to enhance their musical journey. This includes, recording, producing and even performing with a live DJ on their instrument. We want to excite our students and show them the different variations and outlets music has and all that their instrument has to offer. During this time all of these classes, workshops and LAB's are now offered virtually and in open air spaces when available. Please talk to our Lesson Desk Coordinators for more details.
