Guitar lessons are fun for students at Arlington Heights Music Academy! Our guitar teachers are friendly and patient. Each teacher possesses a university degree and a variety of guitar skills so that each student can progress from beginning to advanced instruction with the same teacher, creating a lasting bond and mutual understanding that can help the student learn in the best way possible. Students will gain an understanding of music theory and guitar technique. We base the learning process on the student’s goals – they can learn acoustic, electric, classical, or bass guitar, and have the option of learning classical music, rock, and more, based on their interests. Our instructors can teach both guitar tab and sheet music, giving the student the option to learn in whatever way best fits their goals and learning process.

We keep students interested in their lessons through a combination of incentives, performance opportunities, and making lessons fun with the use of games that teach as well as entertain. All lessons include the opportunity to win weekly prizes and end-of-year medals through earning points based on at-home practicing. Students are also given the chance to compete in music festivals and theory tests to further increase their musicianship. We also provide three recitals per year as an opportunity for the student to perform! The recitals are a wonderful way for the student to share with his or her family the skills they have learned, as well as having the chance to hear the performances of other students.

The benefits of learning and instrument are lasting – experts agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, fine motor skills, self-confidence and problem solving, as well as fostering a love and understanding of the art of music. Guitar is a skill that can be a benefit for a lifetime, with many opportunities to continue performing and enjoying the instrument for years to come.

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.
