Welcome to the Atlanta Music Project
Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Music Project provides intense music education for underserved youth right in their neighborhood.
Inspired by Venezuela’s El Sistema, AMP believes the pursuit of musical excellence leads to the development of confidence, creativity and ambition, thus sparking positive social change in the individuals and the communities we serve.
AMP is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
“To inspire social change by providing Atlanta’s underserved youth the opportunity to learn and perform music in orchestras and choirs.”
How AMP Works
For the 2013-2014 school year, the Atlanta Music Project offers, for the first time, orchestra and choir programs. All AMP programs are rigorous with classes taking place from three to five days per week, for two hours each day.
As we believe all children are musical, we do not hold entrance auditions or require students to have any musical experience. The only thing required for a student to be in AMP: commitment to attending all classes.
The Atlanta Music Project provides for each of its students: an instrument, classes, world-class Teaching Artists and numerous performance opportunities. AMP classes include orchestra, choir, musicianship, African drum and dance and group lessons in the following orchestral instruments: violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, trumpet and trombone. As AMP expands, we will offer oboe, bassoon, french horn, tuba and orchestral percussion.
AMP currently serves 115 students every week with programming divided into three branches:
Each branch is divided into sites or programs:
- Orchestral Branch
- Choral Branch (AMPlify)
- AMP Academy
- AMP Academy: advanced musical training for AMP’s most talented and dedicated students
