Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Music Project provides world-class music training supporting youth growth and development.

In addition to after-school learning sites providing band, orchestra and choir instruction, AMP’s programs include: the AMP Academy, providing advanced musical training to AMP’s most talented and dedicated students; the AMP Preparatory School for elementary school-aged musicians; the AMP Summer Series, a music festival and school; and the AMP Youth Orchestras and Choirs. AMP also has a college and career program supporting AMP alumni. With a projected 2023-20224 annual operating budget of $2.9MM, AMP will serve over 500 young musicians. AMP music ensembles perform more than 50 concerts annually, performing in venues all across Atlanta, from community centers to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
