The Atlanta institute of Music serves students without discrimination on the basis of sex, race, age or religion. The mission statement of the Atlanta Institute of Music was developed in September 1985 by founder Steve Freeman. It was revised in December 1993 by the governing board of the Atlanta Institute of Music to better define the type of instruction offered and to add the non-discriminatory clause. Another revision was made in July 1997 by its President, Nite Driscoll, to better define AIM's purpose, which is to offer instruction and further develop the knowledge and talents of the non-beginning student, one who already possesses or demonstrates an intermediate or better level of physical dexterity and aptitude relative to their instrument."
