AMP’s mission is to provide students with advanced professional audio production, photography and video production skills at a reasonable price. AMP’s affordable tuition allows students to invest in the equipment needed for success. This opens the door for graduates to travel and accept internships that lead to employment.
AMP is fully licensed by the PA Dept. of Education’s Board of Private Licensed Schools. For more information, visit the PA State Dept of Education.
