Autumn Spring 2017 graphic WEB-2.png


FASA is a faith-based musical event designed to transform you into a consummate professional, able to command a stage and execute your craft with excellence.  This isn't your typical summer music program — FASA takes the best of popular music and fuses it with challenging technical training and Broadway-level stagecraft for concert experiences like no other.

We unlock the practice room and put players on the stage after days of intensive training (more if you opt in for the hard-core "Woodshed" Technique Intensive).  You will hone your craft alongside other passionate players and interact with the some of the finest teachers in music. 

Our directors tailor-write and arrange four genre-specific shows ON nashville STAGES THAT FEATURE YOU AND YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS.  

Classical technique, improvisation, and professional stage presence are just a few of the abilities you will develop through the Academy.  Whether your interest is musical theater, big band, or bluegrass, FASA is where your artistic aspirations can become reality.  


Our Vision

Join the Annie Moses Band for AN UNFORGETTABLE summer

Our Vision

Join the Annie Moses Band for AN UNFORGETTABLE summer


When we began the Fine Arts Summer Academy over ten years ago, we never dreamed that FASA would grow to be the extraordinary event it is today. Being a musical family we found that many families wanted to emulate what we had done as the Annie Moses Band. FASA was our answer - an event that would give young musicians a life-changing experience of real-world excellence. 

Too many musicians stagnate inside practice rooms, handicapped by low standards and bad information. Performance opportunities are rare, especially in professional venues. FASA exists to change that. We know first-hand how powerful it can be to perform with excellence alongside people you love. That's the experience we want to share with you.

The arts are transformational to society. The stages of the world open up to individuals marked by excellence. Our vision is to see those stages occupied by extraordinary artists driven by a love for the good, the true, and the beautiful - a love for God. We were created to create, and FASA is an opportunity for us to fulfill our purpose - together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is FASA so short? I’m used to Summer Festivals that are 8 or more weeks long!
A: FASA is different from other summer festivals - it’s not a place to hang out all summer, it’s an INTENSIVE… if we all spent 8 or 9 weeks working as hard as we do for the 10 days of FASA, we’d all end up in the hospital. So come ready to work harder than you ever have (in a musical sense), and gain a more amazing reward after 10 short days than you ever thought possible.

Q: Why is FASA so long? I’m used to ___ day camps…
A: Because FASA isn’t an after-school day camp - it’s an INTENSIVE 10-day immersive experience where you rub shoulders with other dedicated artists who are striving for excellence. It will transform your artistic horizon.

Q: What if I’m a beginner? Can I attend FASA?
A: Our only requirement is that you have studied your instrument or talent for a minimum of one year.  We have both incredibly advanced students and those who have just recently begun their musical journey, but our original orchestrations are designed to challenge the most advanced students while also allowing beginners to be a part of the fun. 

Q: I’ve just begun my musical studies, can I still come?  
A: The one-year requirement is only for Upper Division, so if you are under the age of 11, you can attend Younger Division.  For those 12 and older, we recommend taking a year to get familiar with your instrument before jumping into an intensive experience like FASA.

Q: Is FASA only for instrumentalists?
A: Nope. FASA features a wide range of disciplines including voice, dance, drama, brass, woodwinds, piano, guitar, violin, viola, cello, bass, harp and percussion.  Our faculty include Mississippi jazz masters, renowned Nashville blue-grassers, Juilliard-trained technical instructors, and Manhattan dance pros - just to name a few!

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Tuition for FASA Upper Division (12-21 yrs old) is $1399; Early birds, those who register before February 27th, will only pay $1299 for tuition. After February 27th, tuition will cost $1399. 

Younger Division Tuition (5- 11 yrs old) is $599. 

"The Summer Woodshed" Intensive: $400

"The Winter Woodshed" Intensive: $400

Room and Board not included for either division. 

Q: Do you have payment plans?
A: Yes, we do.  The earlier you register, the lower your monthly payments will be.  At the time you complete your registration, you can set up monthly payments.  The payment plan is subject to a 5% fee, to handle credit card processing.  Remember, we’re a non-profit - we can’t keep tuition this low and absorb credit card fees.

Q. Is FASA a family friendly environment?
FASA is a faith-based program that values artistic excellence and personal integrity. One of the passions of Annie Moses Foundation is equipping families to perform together. The arts are a powerful medium in our culture, and we aspire to raise up a generation of skilled artists that communicate positive messages.
