All of our 16 studio and teaching spaces are safe, secure, and beautifully decorated. These rooms are designed specifically for safety, comfort, and technical specifications. 


There are four extraordinary performance spaces available to music students at AFTA for individual recitals and group presentations. Varying in seating capacity for audiences from 100 to 1,100, all offer performers roomy stages, state-of-the-art sound, and recording capabilities, and are equipped with grand pianos as well as a 42-rank pipe organ in the largest auditorium. The spaces all offer comfortable seating, are accessible from ample parking, are supported by lovely reception halls, and are frequently in demand by professional music groups
throughout the region.
