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: 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.
