Learn Music - Have Fun - Rock out

PopShop - ROCK enROLL today!

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! Throughout the PopShop session, band members take to the stage for live performances to showcase each student's talent and hard work. Live performances are 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.

Feedback

  • "Had a great time at Black Bear. Kudos to you for the teaching and relationships that got the kids (and adults) there. The Black Bear venue permitted a lot of {my son's} friends to be there, which was awesome support."

    - Parent of PopShop student

  • "You don't know me, but {one of your students} is a dear friend of mine, and I just wanted to thank you so much for all the wonderful work you did with him and all the other PopShop kids. He has been on Cloud Nine over the experience. The other day he said to me, with a big smile on his face, "I feel like I get better at guitar just by being in the room." You are doing an amazing thing with these kids, and you must be very good with them; the results are so impressive. So I just wanted to thank you for giving such a great gift to the community. Best of luck to you, and keep up the good work!"

    - Community member and friend of PopShop student

  • "Participating in Pop Shop programs over the years has allowed my son to grow as a musician and as an individual. Chris Russell and his staff are excellent mentors to students that are in the process of discovering their musical talents. Pop Shop bands have a great time while working toward taking their abilities to the next level. It's such a great opportunity...right here in Morgantown! "

    - Cynthia Armstrong, Parent of PopShop student

  • "...Unsurprisingly, he didn't get in trouble at all this spring. There was no acting out, his grades improved and his attendance was stellar. He will start high school in the fall with new confidence in mind and direction in his heart, and it is all because of the gift of a semester in PopShop."

    - Counselor of PopShop student

  • "We love PopShop, it is such a wonderful program for our daughters. They enjoy playing music they hear on the radio and learning to play with a group is important for any musician. We look forward to future semesters!"

    - Angela Carver, Parent of PopShop students

  • "Thanks again for all your hard work and support throughout the semester. We will all look forward to the fall."

    - Adult PopShop student and the parent of PopShop students

  • "I just want to thank you for all your time and hard work you have put into Popshop. The boys were very happy with their performance yesterday. I think they did a great job. I know you put in a lot of hours. I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate it."

    - Parent of PopShop students

  • "I loved doing Popshop! I learned so much during the semesters I spent there - I took the next step and actually played something with other people, outside of my room. I gained a little confidence and (kinda) got over my stage fright. I recommend this program to people all the time and try to spread the word as much as I can. Thank you so much for all you did for me!"

    - Anna Smith, Former PopShop student

  • "Many thanks for you and your assistants for all you do with young musicians. PopShop has been an amazing experience for my son and his band. {My son} has gained confidence as a musician that I never thought we'd see."

    - Parent of PopShop student
