We're as passionate about music as ever, and we're also invested in remaining flexible and safe. We want to meet the needs and preferences of our students and their families, so we have both adjusted in person and online study options available.
Based on information from federal, state and local officials, we've resumed in person private lessons and camps at all CMC Atlanta locations. For those who are comfortable attending in person activities, or in need of in person camp, we have posted our 2021 Music Day Camp schedule for CMC Decatur, Little 5 Points and Dunwoody.
Once schools reopen for fall term, we intend to continue in person lessons and group activities on a half or full day schedule, depending on the operating procedures of the local school district served by each CMC Atlanta location. We are currently enrolling students for in person attendance in our AfterSchool Music Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Please note: for the protection of faculty and students who attend such programs in person, we are following protocols and guidelines issued by health officials and regulatory agencies (masks, temperature check at arrival, etc.), and we are limiting enrollment and dividing groups into smaller learning pods at each location.
For those who are not comfortable attending in person activities at this time, we continue to host online private lessons, and we are offering a discounted half day online camp experience as an alternative to in person attendance. Once schools reopen in August, we'll continue with an online lesson option, and we will have a set of online enhancements available that draw from the music school immersion and group activities unique to CMC Atlanta programming.
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.
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.

CMC Atlanta opened in the fall of 2007 as the L5P Music Center. In the 13 years 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
