Colorado AMP is a program that runs from the end of the school day until 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is focused on kids (ages 10-15) who have always wanted to learn the ins and outs of music. The fall program will run from October 1st until December 16th and the Spring program will run from January 9th until May 19th.
The cost for the program is $240 per student per month, but scholarships and sliding scale fees are available. They will learn music theory and ear-training, writing, production, recording, modern music history and more. Even if they have never played before, participants learn how to play the guitar, drums, bass or keyboard with a dedicated teacher.
Participants will use the first part of each day to complete their normal school studies at the camp with the assistance of one of our teachers, followed by instruction in music. Our goal is to give kids ongoing exposure to the arts to replace the cutting down of arts presently happening in many public schools. The program is small and intensive and meant to create strong bonds between participants.
Participants and parents will be required to do an interview with Colorado AMP staff prior to being accepted into the program to make certain that the program is a good fit. This interview will gauge the child’s interest level, but to reiterate, applicants do NOT need to have any musical experience to be accepted into the program.
What Colorado AMP participants receive with the program:
Tools to better understand music. In addition to playing their instrument, they will learn music theory, music history and ear training and much more.
Music they are excited about. The kids will learn music that is relevant to their age and interest.
A chance to meet other kids with similar interests!
School studies. We know that school comes first. Students will have the option of getting tutoring in the normal studies so that is complete before moving on to learning music.
The cost is $240 per month and we do have scholarships available so that anyone who is interested can participate! Register below and contact us by phone or email if you have any questions.
