Our four neighborhood community music schools offer an array of historically-informed, innovative music education programs for students age 4 and up. The opportunities run the gamut from Studio Lessons, which entail a standing appointment for a weekly private lesson, to immersion in after school programs, gap programs, and even apprenticeship and artist residency programs for emerging professional musicians and teachers who are working toward or have already earned undergraduate or graduate degrees in music. We have something for everyone, ages 4 and up, from beginner to pre professional levels.
Opened August 2017, Atlanta Music High School (AMHS) provides a unique educational opportunity for passionate music students grades 6-8 (Prep) and grades 9-12. AMHS offers the courses, faculty, and other resources, including designated time, for younger dedicated music students to develop a strong foundation, and for older students to cultivate advanced technical skills, musical insights and artistic expression, regardless of stylistic interests.
Whether you are just starting out or well on your way to developing a gratifying and authentic personal musical practice, we encourage you to compare our programs to find one that harmonizes well with your interests, goals and resources. We've organized our program catalogue by age groups so you can hone in on opportunities for you or your student.

CMC Atlanta opened in the fall of 2007 as the L5P Music Center. Since our founding, we've grown from providing music lessons, after school and performance programs at a single site to a network of four local community music schools that offer an array of innovative and historically-informed music education programs to students of all ages and skill levels. You'll find us in Little 5 Points/Inman Park, Decatur, Dunwoody, and Brookhaven/N Druid Hills.
With our professional faculty working in collaboration with with Capstone Academy, a private school, we're pleased to offer an accredited middle and high school conservatory educational option for passionate young musicians:
Atlanta Music High School
We offer Day Camps for students in rising grades K-5 at all our locations whenever schools close. Camp themes allow us to focus on projects that are beneficial and fun, and themes help parents to pick weeks that cater to their student's interests. Doors open at 8 am and close at 6:00 pm (with both full and half day options available), and we're providing these musical adventures at very reasonable rates.
We also offer a Summer Performance Workshop for students grade 6-8, 9-12 and recent grads. Students meet for week long sessions to build their skills and understanding and best of all, to prep for showcase performances
New Address, May 2021
After 12 years of operating at our E Howard Ave address in downtown Decatur, we've moved our CMC Decatur location to a new, larger, better facility less than a mile away. We're excited to share our new space with the students, faculty, and families we serve.
