"...Music soothes our souls! During these days, it has been so wonderful to watch and listen as our child is learning to play the guitar. She loves it and we love it. She has been learning via zoom..."
"No matter what program we have been involved in, my children rave about it. They continually ask to participate in more activities offered by FAA. There really is something for everyone to enjoy!"
"I’m so happy that we are able to continue Music therapy with all of the changes. This is something that both of my children look forward to and so important to maintain any level of a normal routine...”
"...to start exposing kids to the concept of schooling, following a schedule, cleaning up and learning about music. I'm so glad to have this class available for my children!"
...No one judges others and he has made some great friends. He loves the staff and the classes he takes to gear up toward the big weekend performances..."
"My sister's day program was closed due to COVID. Music therapy has been so helpful for her. We appreciate FAA highly."
Lea Ann C.Sibling of FAA Student
"It's fantastic. FAA has gone above and beyond to make an easy transition in the time of COVID. They even supplied us with instruments, a packet, shakers, and a tambourine."
"I am a teacher myself and have greatly appreciated the virtual piano lessons. I like how we can have back to back lessons without the travel and scheduling that goes into the in person lessons..."
From a parent's perspective—especially a more cautious, worried one like me... I want to thank the whole FAA team for clearly a lot of efforts to make the building welcoming and safe."
“I highly recommend FAA’s acting classes. First and foremost, they rolled with the punches of COVID. They started in the theatre and when our family went into quarantine, they provided a Zoom option for Bryce. Not the same as the stage, but better for a large audience! He was proud of himself. We were all thankful for what his teacher Sandy had done to create that moment.”
Jaime M.FAA Parent
“Our son is so shy and was really scared to give this a try. Now, he can’t wait to do more!”
"Great people here. I have been performing here for about 6 years now, and it has been a blast. The teaching staff I have interacted with are professional and talented."
