CMC Atlanta offers several different program options to meet diverse family educational interests, varied childcare needs and variable family budgets.
Through Studio Lessons, CMC Atlanta offers students ages 4 and up private lessons on the instrument of choice. Most Elementary Division students will meet with their instructor weekly, one-on-one for 30 minute sessions; as the student develops skills, masters foundational concepts and begins to tackle more complex technical and conceptual material, lessons are extended to 45-minutes in length.
Schedule options include weekday or weekend appointments. We offer a discount (from 10%-25% off) for students who schedule off peak and weekend appointments.
Saturday Morning Music School (Saturday Music) is our intensive music education and enrichment program for students grades PreK-8th grade on weekends. Saturday Music provides comprehensive training to beginners and more advanced students alike in Classical, Jazz, Rock, and/or American Folk music on Saturday mornings during a window from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
AMP is our intensive music education and enrichment program for students grades PreK-8th grade, which provides comprehensive training to beginners and more advanced students alike in classical, jazz, rock, and/or American folk music on weekday afternoons during the traditional latch-key hours.
Our popular Day Camps for Kids strike the perfect balance between a creative, effective music curriculum and some good, old-fashioned fun. In our day camp catalog, there's something for each an every young musician-- beginners or more advanced, instrumentalists and vocalists-- ages 5 and up, and you'll discover enough variety to keep a single student entertained and growing if you enroll for multiple weeks. All camps except the Music Theater Workshop include a private lesson on the instrument of choice. This is a great way for students to continue or start their journey learning to play an age appropriate instrument from a warm and encouraging teacher.
For older students, grades 6-8 and 9-12, we offer performance based Workshops and Workshop intensives. Our most popular summer event for students in this category is our Summer Student Showcase which for the past few years has been at Variety Playhouse in Little 5 Points, one of Atlanta's best music halls. Information about CMC Atlanta Performance Workshops is available here.
