AMPlify@Ivy Preparatory Academy Kirkwood
AMPlify is the choral program of the Atlanta Music Project. The first El Sistema-inspired choral program in Georgia, AMPlify uses choral singing as a catalyst for social change in the city of Atlanta.
Housed in East Atlanta at Ivy Preparatory Academy Kirkwood, AMPlify serves 60 youth in grades 1-8. AMPlify offers a holistic approach to music education that emphasizes increasing Executive Functioning and other academic-readiness skills.
Being ensemble-based, AMPlify also fosters community building by promoting collaboration and respect for others between individuals, families and the broader community.
AMPlify students receive instruction in musicianship, sight reading, composition, improvisation, and of course, choir.
