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 – August 2017
Please note that orientation and all rehearsals are held at our Decatur location.
August 30th, 6:30PM – Orientation! Meet your bandmates and instructor. Select your “sound,” songs, and the all-important band name. Rehearsal times will also be discussed.
Sept 4th-October 8th- 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.
October 9th- November 17th  – 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.

November 11th- Dress Rehearsal 6PM at Firehouse Guitars and Music 

Saturday, November 18th 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.
