Be empowered, as an artist and a human being.
Study at AFTA involves both the joy of music and arts and the discipline required to develop artistic skills. Students are exposed to the great wonders of music and the arts while being expected to practice regularly, learn the foundational theories of music and art, and share their emerging talent in structured public performance or exhibition. The ample and gorgeous space of First Baptist Church provides a unique and inspiring setting for these goals to be realized.
The arts have a nearly-unique power to connect people across differences and diversities of every kind. The experiences of learning, performing, and enjoying artistic crafts offer people the opportunity to know, to encourage, and to value one another on the common ground of aesthetic excellence. We offer such common ground to our community.
