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 provides a unique educational opportunity for passionate music students grades 5-8 (Prep) and grades 9-12. The program is offered through collaboration of our professional faculty with Rivers Academy, a diploma granting, Advanced Ed accredited private school.
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.

You'll find us in Little 5 Points/Inman Park, Decatur, Dunwoody, and Brookhaven/N Druid Hills.

We offer Day Camps for students in rising grades K-5 at CMC Decatur, CMC Dunwoody and CMC Little 5 Points 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 our annual Summer Showcase at 7Stages in Little 5 Points!
