Important News, Updates, and New Information

Because of current circumstances, all FAYM classes and activities will be conducted online for the Fall 2020 semester. Former FAYM families should have gotten an email explaining our decision. More details can be found on the Fall 2020 Covid Changes page.

Classes will start on September 2-3 and run for 12 weeks until November 18-19. Classes will meet once a week, either on Wednesday or Thursday. 

If you are new to the area or new to homeschooling, we would be happy to welcome you to join us for our fall semester! Some of our basic skills classes have enrollment limits. When we find that there is more enrollment than expected, we sometimes add extra class sections to accommodate the extra enrollment. It is our intent to be able to welcome as many students as possible in as many classes as possible this fall.

If you have any specific questions about FAYM, music classes or private instruction, or homeschooling in the Fredericksburg area, please email [email protected]


An important message about SmartMusic: Ask your teacher for an invitation and class code to connect to your FAYM class on the NEW SmartMusic. Do not try to sign up and pay for the SmartMusic account yourself!

All Band, Orchestra, Conducting, and Chorus classes will REQUIRE the use of SmartMusic for assignments and grading during this COVID time of ONLINE classes. Other classes may use it as well, such as Music Theory or Recorder. Please check with your teacher to see if your class will be using the program. As always, the SmartMusic program is highly recommended as a practice and assessment tool. Click here for a very short video about how SmartMusic works!
