About The Academy of Fine Arts

Montgomery County’s most exciting school of music, dance and acting!

The Academy of Fine Arts Music Department offers the highest caliber private instrumental and voice study to its students. Ranging from beginner to advanced, students experience the joys of mastering their instruments, immersion in the language of western classical music and communication with audiences in live performance. Each faculty member has been chosen through a rigorous search process including resume, interview and observed live teaching situation rounds. Through the process, the Academy has built a faculty of highly skilled instrumental and voice teachers with demonstrated success and, just as important, good people skills and demonstrated rapport with students. Students are encouraged to perform as often as possible. Free Monthly Student Recitals, individual teacher Studio Performance Classes, local competitions, and master classes with faculty and professionals from outside the school give students ample opportunity to share their work with supportive listeners. The Academy has a long list of prize winners in state and local competitions, festivals and evaluation programs. Monthly Student Recitals Free!

    My daughter Alessandra enjoys very much learning from Phil Hosford and The Academy of Fine Arts.
    Although Phil takes it seriously he makes makes the class fun; Alessandra is having a blast while learning. Phil is helping her to tune her acting skills to a new level.

    My daughter has taken classes at the Academy since she was 18 months old starting with the toddler class. She then moved up into the group piano program which we loved. Being with peers instead of all by herself as she learned piano was really important for her.

    Then she started Dance (Ballet, Tap and Jazz) and loves it, especially their performances at the Olney Theater. Now she even wants to add Hip-Hop after taking a trial class!

    She also takes art classes with Mr. Rickard and absolutely loves him and the class. She’s not taking acting at the Academy now but when she did, she loved it too, had a great time, learned to speak clearly and now she’s doing commercials and community theater. She’s going to start again this Fall with Ms. Rita. All the teachers at the Academy are fantastic!

    It’s great to have my daughter in such quality programs, all in the same place.

    My daughter began taking classes at the Academy fall of 2012. She’s 5 years old and wanted to take an art class that could teach her to be a better artist. Mr. Rickard’s Intro to “Drawing to Painting” course has fit the bill and then some! Children actually LEARN technique and fundamentals!!! And he makes it fun in a very warm and friendly environment. This is not an arts and crafts class–it’s the real deal. She LOVES the class and her artistic ability has blossomed. I can only imagine how much more she will grow as she continues upward through the art department’s courses. The art department and Mr. Rickard are fabulous additions to the Academy’s line-up of top notch instruction!
