CMC Atlanta offers several different program options to meet diverse family educational interests, varied commuting and activity schedules, and variable family budgets.
It's no secret, college is very expensive. it's also obvious to clear thinking folks that not every high school graduate is ready to enroll in college immediately. Sometimes a year spent doing something valuable or personally meaningful is the ideal last step in college prep. Some college graduates or undergraduates also need a year off before continuing studies or moving on to grad school or into the work force. And frankly, many creative and talented people are better off not going to college at all. The latter statement is a bold, maybe even radical proposition, but it's one worth considering.
We developed our Gap and Apprenticeship Program (GAP) for young adults who love music, who want to explore musical creativity and performance deeply, who would like to be part of a musical community, and who may be interested in community service, but for whatever reason, are not enrolled in college or university degree-granting studies, musical or otherwise. For young adult musicians, outside of expensive college programs or often under resourced and limited home studios or music stores, there aren't many exciting options.
The ATL Mass Brass Workshops will be held at Atlanta Music High School. We're offering two workshops this summer.
The ATL Mass Brass Workshop is a locally unique camp that immerses brass players in both solo and ensemble music making with peers and a faculty comprised of professional performers and educators. Students will spend the week rehearsing as participants in several different brass ensembles, including daily rehearsals and coaching in brass quintet, like-instrument ensembles (such as trombone or trumpet choir) and a large, mass brass ensemble. Students will also have the opportunity to work on solo repertoire with accompanists. The ATL Mass Brass Workshop also includes private lessons with faculty specialists. The week culminates in a Saturday morning concert by students.
