AMP is a community organization — we are building a community of young musicians for the Coachella Valley, with the support of the Coachella Valley.
We offer our programming to families at no cost so that everyone has a chance to be a part of our AMP community.
That means that AMP needs support from its community to be able to offer this wonderful programming and develop this vital community to all those who qualify for it.

The Academy of Musical Performance (AMP) is a program created under the guidance of the Coachella Valley Community Trust (CVCT), managed by a committee of CVCT volunteers and seed funding from Goldenvoice. AMP launched in the summer of 2015 with 32 musically talented Coachella Valley students aged 12-18 attending a multi-week day camp under the tutelage of 15 expert musical instructors. Four bands were created from the group who worked together to create a live show in culmination of their AMP experience, which sold out to a full house exceeding 300 attendees.
The Academy of Musical Performance is excited to announce that we have branched out to form our own non-profit organization dedicated to just the AMP program. The Academy of Musical Performance (AMP) is a California 501(c](3) non-profit organization whose federal tax identification number is 82-1561015. We are incredibly grateful for the years of cultivation and supervision of the Coachella Valley Community Trust that helped us to create this program for the youth of the Coachella Valley.
One AMP parent commented last year that her son “went into the program a boy and left the program a man.” This is the sort of feedback AMP administrators receive on a regular basis as we endeavor to enrich children’s lives through music. Goldenvoice, local officials and the community at large have expressed great enthusiasm for AMP and their desire for the program flourish.
AMP 2016 will be conducted at Shadow Hills High School in the Performing Arts Center this summer, with 36 students (16 female, 20 male from 18 Coachella Valley schools) participating in a 3-week day camp from June 27-July 15, with the final public showcase at Shadow Hills High School to be held on July 16, 2016. Ticket sales for the showcase will be used to support the program.
AMP now includes both a summer camp program and an after school program called, AMP JAMS. All current programs are offered free of charge to our musicians to be accessible to all of the Valley's youth, but we need your help to continue these efforts and achieve our goals.
