Amped Music Academy
From a two-week summer class in 2014 to a nationally recognized year round program today, the Amped Music Academy is changing the lives of Louisville youth.
The Amped Music Academy is the organization’s founding program. It empowers youth to work as a team, learn how to express themselves effectively, and develop into healthy, productive members of our community and the world. Kids and adults are encouraged to express their creativity through music: writing, performing, and producing. The Music Academy also provides mentoring, using music to build connections. This unique opportunity attracts mentors who otherwise might not volunteer, and with whom our youth might not otherwise connect to. The Amped Music Academy is viewed as the gateway to the larger Amped ecosystem, first bringing in the kids while the adult family members find opportunities within Amped’s more adult-oriented programs.
