Firehouse Guitars and Music is excited to bring our students an alternate way to learn music – by playing in a band! Our Academy of Music Performance (AMP) allows students to go beyond personal instruction by learning how to perform in a group setting. A show at Decatur’s famed Eddie’s Attic at the end of the semester allows participants to show off their stuff!

AMP SCHEDULE – Spring 2017
Please note that orientation and all rehearsals are held at our Decatur location.
Feb 24 – Orientation! Meet your bandmates and instructor. Select your “sound,” songs, and the all-important band name. Rehearsal times will also be discussed.
Feb 27-April 2 – Individual instruction. Non-students will be matched with a teacher (existing students will continue with their current teacher). Students will keep in contact over email and can schedule meetings and rehearsals in the AMP room as needed.
April 3-9 – Spring break
April 10-May 19 – Band practice. Groups will meet to rehearse songs with their instructor. Topics covered will include playing as a group, songwriting, soloing, and sound terminology. A dress rehearsal will be included during the final week, where you will load in, set up, and go through the set just like at the show.

May 13th Dress Rehearsal 

Saturday, May 20, 1pm – The big show! Bands will perform at Decatur’s famed Eddie’s Attic, a music scene staple that launched acts like the Indigo Girls and John Mayer.

In order to ensure progress it is required that all participants have the equipment needed to practice at home. Students that do not have their own gear may rent it from Firehouse.
