Our curriculum is both thorough and captivating. Our instructors tailor the lessons to the individual student’s needs and goals, whether that means a heavy focus on theory or preparing for a specific performance. Class and private lessons include theory, ear training, fun and creative activities, and the opportunity for ensemble work as well as solo.  Our program is committed to helping students learn to read music and understand theory, so that they become increasingly independent and will be able to carry this skill throughout their lives. We are equipped with learning games, midi technology, visual aids and a variety of motivational tools to make music lessons both enjoyable and rewarding.

 

Our students are given the opportunity to perform and compete with each other as well as outside the school. With our Practice Points program, students are encouraged in their at-home practice time through competition and small incentive rewards, culminating in awards given out at our spring recital to reward their hard work. Our recitals, taking place in December, May, and August, allow the students to perform for their families and friends, as well as each other. This is a family favorite, and many of the students enjoy the opportunity to show off what they have learned. Students are given the opportunity to compete outside the school in the Whitlock Theory Test and TFMC Junior Festival each February–with some students advancing on to the TFMC’s State Festival in May!

PAYMENT POLICY

Registration at AHMA is for the school year. For your convenience, a nine-month payment plan is available. Our automated payment system withdraws a monthly payment from your account or charges your credit card on the 2nd of each month (September through May) or once a semester. Early withdrawal before the end of a semester does not terminate responsibility for payment of tuition. (See withdrawal policy below.)

WITHDRAWAL POLICY

A 30-day notice is required for early withdrawal. One of the two following conditions will apply: (1) Refunds for withdrawal from classes during the semester will be limited to the tuition for remaining classes minus four week’s tuition. (2) For those making payments in quarters, one payment will be due upon withdrawal.

MAKE-UP LESSON POLICY

Musikgarten – Because these young students need the security of having class with the same group of students each week, class lessons missed cannot be made up during another class. No refunds or credits will be given for missed class lessons. Private lessons may not be made up except in the case of illness or emergency, and then only if we are notified by 2:00 PM the day of the lesson to be missed. To cancel a private lesson call your teacher at 817-731-2612. Leave a message if he/she is unavailable. No refunds or credits will be given for missed class lessons or un-rescheduled private lessons. No makeup lessons will be given after the next AHMA school session starts. Please remember that tuition purchases instruction time, training and experience. Your lesson time is reserved for you even if you don’t use it.

Parent Participation

Parental supervised practice is of utmost importance! Parents are partners in the learning process. Gentle encouragement is needed for the student to feel the delight of successful learning. It is very important that a student feel successful at the tasks he or she is attempting. Please encourage daily practice. Younger children should not be expected to do all of their practicing alone. Sing songs together, practice rhythm and note reading exercises together, practice the assigned pieces together. Try to set aside the same time every day for practice sessions, and make it a goal to practice each piece multiple times each day. Practice time is rewarded through our Practice Points program. Students can receive small prizes throughout the year, and end-of-year awards are also given out.

BAD WEATHER POLICY

Bad weather closing of AHMA will coincide with Fort Worth ISD. Information on school closings is available from radio/TV. Due to scheduling difficulties, bad weather days cannot be made up.

Special instructions:

Students and parents arriving early should enter through the front entrance and wait for their class in the waiting room (foyer). Parking is available in front and behind the school. Please do not park in the driveway! This blocks students and parents who wish to park in back from entering and exiting.
