The high school ATLAS Adventure includes materials that focus on:

- Relevant vocabulary

- Discussion activities surrounding practicing and how music builds community

- Introduction to chord building and basic chord progressions within a folk music context

- Introduction to composition


The adventure begins with student study guides and teacher companions that take students on a journey of musical exploration. Facilitated by teachers, students work through the various activities outlined in their study guides to develop knowledge and skills to prepare them for the next stop on their adventure...

...a workshop with The OK Factor! Students build off the foundation they developed throughout their study guides to take part in large group activities and small group technique sessions that focus on string techniques such as chopping, accented rhythmic patterns and ornamentation, chord progressions, and arrangement techniques. High school workshops also include arrangement and performance of original compositions and an introduction to improvisation.
