AMP, the only local program for Coachella Valley youth with an interest in music, relies on grants, sponsors and generous private donations to provide various programs for ages 8 to 18, plus private music lessons. Donations keep the tuition low as well as provide full scholarships for over half of the young musicians who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend. AMP is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization led by a dedicated volunteer board of directors that includes Daniel Duardo, Bruce Feagle, Stephanie Greene, Wendy Hope-Heckmann, Michele Penn, Kate Spates, Greg Vincent, and Roman Whittaker.
