About Us

Welcome to the Academy of Fine Arts

Launched in September 1995, The Academy of Fine Arts has grown into one of Montgomery County’s premier resources for quality arts education. Formerly named the Academy of Music, the school branched out to include outstanding faculty and programs in Dance and Theater. Three different Academies in one space makes for a lively atmosphere and convenience for parents and students wanting to investigate and excel in more than one discipline. The exceptional faculty, each member chose through a rigorous search and audition process, have trained literally thousands of students over the years and made a significant contribution to the arts in Montgomery County.


Our Mission

To bring to our current students and those from future generation the joy and exhilaration that comes with deep and committed involvement in the art of music.

We will provide the best musical guidance possible to help students explore and realize their full potential, fostering their growth as sensitive, responsible, thinking people.

We will recognize the unique value of our distinguished teaching faculty and create an environment where they continue to grow as musicians, bringing the full force of their talents to lessons, classes and student progress.

We will learn, reevaluate and modify our techniques and methods as teachers and administrators, striving always to build a school where sincere artistic expression is sacred and excellence in craft is attainable.

Mastery of an instrument and deep understanding of great art are priceless. We dedicate ourselves to giving our students " ...the joy and exhilaration of knowing a deep thing well".
