Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are you looking for in the audition process?
A: FASA's vision is to forge great artists by getting them on a stage with music tailored to their strengths so they can experience the real-world pressures and joys of performance. FASA is also about community - we are not interested in the next American Idol, but in nurturing a broad array of genres, instruments, and artistic personalities that are united by a love of music and a love of God.
That's why FASA is for both beginning and advanced players, for promising young talent and college-age aspirants. We are looking for hard workers who love collaboration and project a good spirit, who take their art seriously and desire to deepen it for the benefit of those around them.
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: I’ve just begun my musical studies, can I still come?
A: FASA is open to all skill levels, provided you have a working knowledge of your instrument (at least 1 year of study if not more.) If you are a student who needs in-depth technical training, we recommend our Woodshed Intensives which are designed to bolster skill level and jump-start your artistry.
Q: Is FASA only for instrumentalists?
A: FASA features a wide range of disciplines including voice, dance, drama, piano, guitar, violin, viola, cello, harp and percussion.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Tuition for FASA (8-22 yrs old) is $1099.
The Spring and Summer Woodshed Intensives are $400 per person.
Room and Board are not included.
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.
