The Atlanta Music Project is holding a music instrument donation drive now through August 6th. The donations will help the group provide instruments to children involved in the project’s orchestral training program. Marjorie Coley reports.

The Atlanta Music Project is a five day a week after school youth orchestra and choir program. Co founder Dante Rameau says the idea is to keep kids safe after school while teaching the students skills for life through music.

“We’re trying to give kids a different activity to do, that’s different than maybe sports. The thing that’s beautiful about music and about our program is that it doesn’t discriminate. Anybody can do it. You don’t have to be tall enough or fast enough. We don’t audition our students. It’s purely first come, first serve,” said Rameau.

Rameau says right now the program serves 40 kids at the Gilbert House in Southwest Atlanta.

He says all types of instruments are needed. He says donations can be made at various locations around the Metro. Go to atlantamusicproject.org for more information.
