Atlanta Music Project Looking for Donations of Guitars and Snare Drums
On my drive into work this morning, I heard an interview with several individuals involved with the Atlanta Music Project. With the budget cuts to music education in the Atlanta Public School System, this type of organization is a much needed resource for students.
For now, through September 8th, the Atlanta Music Project is requesting donations of Guitars and Snare Drums.

How AMP Works
For the 2015-2016 school year, the Atlanta Music Project will serve 200 students weekly through our after-school programs and the AMP Academy, our private lesson program.
All AMP programs are rigorous with classes taking place up to four 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, ear training, music theory, African drum and dance and group lessons in the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, voice, piano and guitar. As AMP and AMPlify expand, we will offer oboe, bassoon, french horn, tuba, orchestral percussion, and electric bass.
