AMP

In AMP (Artist Mentorship Program), participants meet weekly with other students age 14 – 17 to collaborate, write, record, and further explore musical concepts with peers and professional working musicians. Sessions often include rehearsals for upcoming performances, recording and writing accompaniment parts for a new song written by a fellow student, and collaborative jam sessions. This program focuses on personal development and musical skills. AMP students will also receive up to 4 hours of one-on-one recording time at MVM Studios for each quarter of instruction. Students must be willing to collaborate with a diverse group of participants with varying degrees of musical levels and experience – attitude is everything!

Students interested in AMP must complete an interview and audition with instructors in order to enroll in the class. Please email monica@myvoicemusic.org for more information.
