Can’t stop smiling!


My daughter just had the chance to be in one of OMF’s videos. She had the most incredible experience and can’t stop smiling. Thank you!

The OMF experience is priceless

What an incredible organization!  This foundation and what they do for children is like no other. From the moment we arrived it was non-stop learning about music and video production.  Our son was able to be a part of a creative environment and form long lasting friendships with like-minded youth from across the country.  The

Has loved every minute of it


Our daughter started humming before she could talk. She was born with music in her blood and loves singing all genres of music. She was asked to do her first OMF project a year and a half ago and has loved every minute of it since then! She gets to do videos with kids from

An experience unlike any other

When my family got involved with the O’Keefe Music Foundation several years ago, we did so to have fun and to nurture my kids’ love for music. Because we are local to Cincinnati, we have been so fortunate to participate in several OMF projects as they pop up. Everyone at OMF is insanely talented and

The literal time of his life


Just wanted to reach out and thank OMF for having Michael be a part of this super rad thing you do! Today went beyond my expectations and he had the literal time of his life. He is already wanting to practice more songs and is ready for the next one! Seriously, thank you so very

Inspired our son

We want to thank the O’Keefe Music Foundation and all of the volunteers for providing a unique venue for our son to showcase his musical talents in a safe, family oriented atmosphere. The opportunity to work with other hard working, aspiring musicians his age on a professional recording and video has inspired our son to

Most of all fun!


We just spent the weekend recording and filming with the OMF crew and some enormously talented musicians. What an experience it was. Even with Covid, the event was safe, educational, organized, and most of all fun! With the staff’s enthusiasm and persistence the young musicians who worked and prepared for their performance were able to

Highly recommend


What would we do without music? And what better way to keep music alive is to get children engaged in it from a young age. That is exactly what OMF is doing. They invite kids from all over the country to come out for a weekend and collaborate on a handful songs. Kids who have

Become a better, more versatile musician


OMF is a great foundation that brings in high quality talent from all over the country. We are very fortunate to have OMF so close to our home and the opportunities that it has afforded our son. Connor has performed in several videos and they have been the highlight of his musical career so far.

Confidence growing more and more


OMF has provided an enormous amount of learning and performance opportunities that my son would never receive anywhere else.  The amount of energy and time the OMF staff give to the children is remarkable.  OMF has been such a positive experience for our son.  We know that his involvement with OMF will benefit him throughout

In the clouds


To the OMF crew, thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t say it enough. I know you are accustomed to all of this, but I still can’t wrap my head around all of this!  My son and I are so giddy!  From his video being seen over 110k times in one day, to WEBN

A dream come true


I can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with OMF!!!! It’s been a dream come true for my son. The staff at OMF are exceptional and the program is taught in a fun and exciting way.  This resonates with the kids and inspires them to be motivated learners.  My son Seb can’t wait to

OMF is the place to go without a doubt


If your kids or young adults have any interest in pursuing their musical talents OMF is the place to go without a doubt. We watched our son from the age of 11 go from an interest in guitar to now at 17 composing his own music, performing in music videos and being absolutely obsessed with

Exceeded our expectations


OMF has exceeded our expectations and has given us way more than drum lessons! As Logan says, he has learned more than just drums and feels like he is part of a band. The staff at OMF has also encouraged our daughter to participate and she is now inspired to learn to sing. In all

OMF came to the rescue!

Cannot say enough about how much my child has learned at the O’Keefe Music Foundation. We greatly appreciate how they offer free lessons and help Hannah move ahead in her love of music! We struggled to keep Hannah in music school with the cost of everything now with COVID19 being an income issue.  But OMF

Gives him experience and confidence


OMF has given my son so many amazing opportunities during a time of his life when he needed to feel like he belonged to something. This program has given him experiences and confidence that will stay with him throughout his entire life. He wants to pursue music as a career and this experience will be

Valued and supported


We feel so lucky to have found OMF and even luckier to live in the same city where this wonderful music school is located. When my son started guitar lessons, we had no idea the opportunities that would be available to him. Not only has he become an incredible guitarist over the past 3 years,

Foster his love for music

My brother-in-law sent us a link to an OMF video a few years ago since he knew Sam enjoyed playing guitar. I don’t think he ever dreamed that Sam would make it into any videos. We’re so glad that we sent in a video of Sam blasting “Carry On Wayward Son” at his 5th grade

A platform to prosper


OMF is a top notch environment for young musicians to play/perform and meet other like minded kids. I see my son is making friends instantaneously and bonding over playing/ music/gear. The staff’s dedication to having a platform for these kids to prosper is awesome and we look forward to every session with OMF.

A great vision for future musicians!


We drove from North Dakota to Ohio for this opportunity and it was a great experience all around. It is such a positive environment for young musicians. It was amazing to watch kids come from all around who have never met and play together with such ease. OMF has a great vision for future musicians!

Truly one-of-a-kind

We are fortunate to live in what is described as the “live music capital of the world” and although there are many great musical opportunities in the area, OMF is truly one-of-a-kind.  Where else can a kid get matched up with high level talent to do studio recording and professional video circulated to an established

Meet other kindred spirits


My son Conner had the opportunity to play in a recently filmed OMF video and he’s still high on the experience. Thank you for providing a great place for kids to pursue their dreams and passions in the music world and to meet other kindred spirits. Rock on!

Phenomenal for our son

The OMF has been phenomenal for our son.  He has enjoyed learning how to perform in a highly professional way with a very talented staff and group of young musicians.  What a unique experience available to anyone-we are so lucky to have been involved!

Highest level of professionalism


My son Aidan has been fortunate enough to have participated in several projects with the O’Keefe Music Foundation over the last four years. Traveling from Nebraska, working in multiple studios in the Cincinnati and Nashville areas, the experience has been amazing! It has been a great place for Aidan to network with other talented musicians

It is an experience that you can’t get just anywhere


Working with OMF was a lot of fun for my son and I enjoyed watching him interact with musicians from all over the area, and the country.  The recordings allow him to gain a unique perspective on music production as well as “star” in a video he can share with his “fans”!  It is an

WOW!! doesn’t begin to describe

WOW!! doesn’t begin to describe the emotional rush and awesomeness of the video. Kaleb is excited and extremely pleased with the results. And as his parents, we couldn’t be prouder of him and all those kids! It truly was an honor to be part of this OMF project. We look forward to future opportunities with

The experience he has always dreamed of

I wanna start by saying OMF is not only an amazing foundation but has personally given my child the experience he has always dreamed of.
