CMC Atlanta designs and implements comprehensive educational programs for students PreK through Adult that promote the development of music skills and concepts, with innovative options available to meet a variety of interests and schedule needs
for students of all ages
The Core Program provides the basic framework for all CMC Atlanta programs. The Core Program includes:
Students are divided by age, skill level, and interests. Students are provided music immersion experiences and access to a variety of resources that support the cultivation of skills and concepts. Beginning through advanced training is available in Classical, Jazz, Rock, and American Folk & Roots Music.
The tuition for the Core Program is set according to the duration of private/partner lessons.
for students in upper elementary grades and older
Our Selective Program enrollment provides students the opportunity to play in CMC Atlanta ensembles. Students do not enroll in private lessons at the Center, but the student must either be enrolled elsewhere or pass a proficiency review to integrate into CMC Performance Program ensembles such as jazz combos, rock bands, and chamber ensembles.
for grades K-5, and middle school students
Too busy to shuttle students to and from the Center? AMP is the solution. AMP was designed to make the music school immersion experience of our Core Program available to a wider audience. Students come directly to the Center from school on a school bus or the CMC Atlanta Shuttle. Parents pick students up from the Center by 6:30, after training is completed for the day.
Tuition varies according to the number of days per week the student attends.
Have a PreK or half-day student? Check out miniAMP, which meets from 12:30 to 3:30
for grades K-5
Half Day Saturday Music School. This program provides the same immersion experience as AMP but students come on Saturday mornings instead of after school.

for grades K-5
Day Camps are offered to Elementary Division students whenever local schools are closed. CMC Day Camps typically focus on a particular theme or type of musical activity. Students engage in the production process and camp typically culminates in an informal Camp Showcase on the final day.
Tuition starts at $285 per week for full day (9 am to 4 pm), and for no added charge, early drop of (8 am) and late pick up (6:00 pm) are avaialble. Half day morning, afternoon or drop in day options available.
for PreK students
The same idea as AMP, but designed for the half day Kindergarten or PreK student. It's an ideal way for a student to begin to play the piano or a string instrument (violin or cello). The program also includes private lessons and group activities, like singing, playing drums, completing music crafts.
Rates vary according to the number of days per week the student attends.
for PreK students
It's simple: think of this as either the ideal Morning Out Program or a great alternative to daily PreSchool attendance. Just like mini-AMP, students choose piano or a string instrument and start laying the groundwork for a lifetime of playing music.

for middle and high school students, recent graduates
Private lessons, subject specific training sessions, and performance and music projects for middle and high school students. Activities are scheduled after school, in the evening, on weekends, and either half or full day when local schools are closed. Our Summer Performance Workshop (each June and July) culminates in a Summer Student Showcase at Variety Playhouse in Little 5 Points.
Workshop Intensives provide students the opportunity to cover skills and concepts in a very thorough way in a short period of time. Students interact with expert faculty in private lessons and small groups, often for the purpose of preparing a performance or completing a project. This program has proven to be very effective for students who are considering collegiate level music studies.
