Fine Arts Registration Information
We are excited to open Fine Arts offerings back up for the 2021-2022 school year!
REGISTRATION Students new to the Fine Arts program at AAA will incur a one-time registration fee of $25. Students new to the Academy will not incur a late fee if registered for school after the Fine Arts enrollment period. The Business Office will forward the required information to the Fine Arts Coordinator, who will process the student’s application.
Should an offering be filled, the student will be placed on a waiting list until the time at which placement becomes available. Families new to the Academy are informed of the Fine Arts Program offerings during the new student’s registration process.
OTHER POLICIES & INFORMATION There are no private lessons scheduled during the holidays. Please check the school calendar for the specific dates. Two make-up lessons for student absences will be given per year. Instructors will make up any lesson missed due to their own absence or due to any calendared school event. There are no make-ups or credits for class offerings or ensembles. Students are required to purchase music books for their lessons. Each instructor will advise the students regarding the materials to be purchased and the method of payment. The publication, Practice and Progress, is recommended for every private music lesson student. Available in the AAA bookstore, the book is very detailed in recording the repertoire, theory, and techniques reviewed at each lesson. Additionally, it contains provisions for comments and practice goals set by the instructor. The book makes it very simple for parents to know the specific music assignment without having to look through an array of different theory books, notespellers, and lesson instruction books. Mid-year registration openings will be made available the first week of December. FINE ARTS
