The Atlanta Music Project Academy is AMP’s premier training program for our most talented and dedicated students. The goal of the program is to put students on a fast track to the highest level of musical proficiency on their instrument.

Members of the AMP Academy have successfully auditioned for Georgia All-State ensembles, been invited to prestigious summer music festivals such as the National Take-a-Stand Festival, and several are preparing auditions to obtain a college scholarship.

Admittance to the AMP Academy is through audition and interview only and requires substantial commitment and moral support from the student’s family.

AMP Academy students receive a top quality instrument, receive private instruction once a week with an AMP Teaching Artist, participate in masterclasses with renowned artists and perform in solo recitals throughout the year.

Current, full-time AMP students in third grade and above are eligible to audition for the AMP Academy.

Funding provided in part by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Department of Community Development CSP Program.
