Exploration, experimentation, and creativity are the foundations of The OK Factor's elementary clinics. Through story-telling activities, rhythmic games, and familiar folk tunes, students are introduced to a variety of string-specific techniques that can be used in all genres of music. General music clinics include performances, Q&A, and an instrument petting zoo. Download The OK Factor's Elementary Clinics handout for additional information.
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL CLINICS
Similar to the elementary clinics, The OK Factor take middle and high school students on an adventure in folk music - how prevalent it has been in our world throughout history, and how we can use folk music to create new and exciting music today. Delving into composition, arrangement techniques, and a variety of other in-depth topics, The OK Factor focuses on stirring the creativity inside each student, encouraging them to unlock the potential within their instruments and themselves.

In addition to educational workshops, The OK Factor thrives on spending time in virtually any community setting - from senior living communities to discussion groups, local watering holes, VA hospitals and hospice care facilities, Olivia and Karla seek out additional opportunities to meet members of the community where they are.
