the 2006 Summer Music Conservatory, AFA no longer permits students to
participate full-time in two or more programs. This is done so that
students gain the full benefit of participation in their respective
programs without the distraction of other priorities.
students who wish to explore other programs or instruments may elect
to sign up for private lessons in another department (e.g., an orchestra
student may sign up for voice lessons or a piano student may sign up
for composition lessons). While students do not take part in the full
offerings of that department, they are able to explore other music interests
beyond their immediate area.
on the number of lessons, students can expect to pay between $90 and
$150 in addition to their tuition for private lessons in another area.
Attendance (Orchestra/Chamber Music Only)
rare occasions, AFA will permit students in the orchestra/chamber
music program only to attend AFA on a part-time basis (students
in piano, composition, choir or middle school may not attend AFA part-time).
students participate in orchestra and elective classes only and attend
AFA only in the mornings (e.g., from 8:45-12:00). They do not participate
in chamber music or receive private lessons. By participating in orchestra,
students must be available each morning during one of the ranges of
dates given below so that they may rehearse and perform
the selected repertory with the orchestra. Applicants unable to fulfill
both the rehearsal and performance requirement will not be permitted
to enroll on a part-time basis.

you wish to attend part-time on your application in the "schedule
