WHY AMP? ...because MEANING MATTERS ...in whatever you do!

Amateur
...from the Latin amator, or lover. An amateur is actually someone who pursues their art for the love of it. Not for money, or fame, or likes...FOR THE LOVE.

Amateur Music Project (AMP) is a community of professional and nonprofessional musicians united by the idea that we are all amateurs. AMP's driving force is a group of talented and experienced music industry professionals who find meaning in supporting nonprofessional musicians through connection and mentoring.

We envision a thriving inclusive music community united by the idea that we all play for the love of music - we are all Amateurs. This community nurtures a very wide range of opportunities for musicians, allowing them to find valuable connections, even mentoring, from professionals who desire to share the knowledge of their experiences. We will also focus on helping professional musicians to rekindling their amateur passion and set it a blaze through inspiring guided content, workshops, seminars, 1-1 peer mentoring, and eventually annual AMP conventions.

YOU. Now. With US - at the beginning. While we are absolutely in the "start-up" phase of our growth, we are inspired and passionate about the vision we're reaching for. Please join us. Your support allows us to create opportunities for everyone to...
  • connect to a network of professional Nashville musicians who have the heart to mentor and support others who 'play for the love'.
  • learn to make music in personal lessons with a skilled teacher, even if they cannot afford to pay.
  • experience live shows, with some of Nashville's top amateur - professional & nonprofessional - musicians
  • grow as a musician with exclusive online content - including lesson videos, practice tips, professional guidance, product reviews, performances, and more.
  • be involved in a cultural movement championing the idea that making music is a meaningful pursuit for all individuals and for our society as a whole.
Goals
0% complete
Our initial goal is to raise the monthly support of $1,000. For a dollar a month, less than a cup of coffee at most places, anyone can become an AMP Patron and support:
  • the creation of a series of short videos produced in collaboration with Story Forge Nashville. These videos will introduce AMP Nashville to the world, tell our story and explain our mission.
  • general support for start-up needs, such as graphic design, branding, attorney fees, and incorporation fees.

Once these fundamental steps are complete, we'll move to our next goal of fully utilizing Patreon's "support-for-content" platform, by Spring 2018, offering access to great content just for AMP Patrons:
  • Exclusive performances
  • Instructional lessons
  • Workshops
  • Seminars
  • Behind-the-scenes video of professional (but Amateur) AMP Nashville music industry artists.

The third goal is to establish on-going fundraising to support AMP Nashville's vision of making music available to any Amateur - regardless of ability to pay. We also desire to partner with professionals to help them maintain or reinvigorate their amateur love for music through workshops, seminars, and one on one peer mentoring.

Our final goal is to invite the larger Nashville community to share in AMP Nashville's vision to influence music culture as a whole by bringing professionals and nonprofessionals together to collaborate on, learn about, perform, and experience music in a deeper and more meaningful way. We're gonna AMP Nashville!
