In 2021 OFOAM established WILL & WAY, a program to loan instruments to children, youth and underserved adults in our community where there is an interest, a need, and or a financial roadblock.

Do you want to learn to play an instrument? Are there barriers to you renting or owning an instrument and/or paying for lessons? Ogden Friends of Acoustic Music (OFOAM) has guitars, mandolins, banjos, fiddles, and instructors to get you started.

At OFOAM, where there’s a WILL, there’s a WAY!

Do you have a guitar collecting dust? A banjo taking up space?
