AMP up social change through music!
About the Project
Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Music Project (AMP) provides intensive, tuition-free music education to underserved youth right in their neighborhood. Our mission is to inspire social change by providing Atlanta’s underserved youth the opportunity to learn and perform music in orchestras and choirs. Serving 250 students at five sites, AMP provides all students with an instrument, teaching artist, classes, and numerous public performance opportunities. AMP does not hold entrance auditions – the only requirement is the commitment to attending all classes: over 300 hours of after-school instruction.
The AMP Academy provides the most talented and dedicated students from all AMP sites, with advanced musical instruction. AMP Academy students, admitted by audition only, receive a weekly private lesson from an AMP teaching artist, perform two solo recitals annually, participate in masterclasses with top artists, and must pass an adjudicated performance jury at the end of each school year. Currently, 25% of AMP students are members of the AMP Academy.
Your support will allow AMP to continue to provide tuition-free Academy lessons to our students.
