Before you can register for any FAYM class, you MUST read everything on this website.

Most questions, concerns, and problems can be solved simply by reading and understanding all information that has been presented to you. When you register, it is implied that you understand and agree to abide by all policies and procedures that have been posted. If you have questions, please ask them FIRST before registering. Email FAYMdi[email protected] with questions.

It is expected that every family (parent and student) has read the handbook. If you haven't read the handbook yet, please click here.

Classes are filled in the order the registrations are received. Some classes have a limit on the number of students that can enroll. If that class reaches its maximum capacity, enrollment for that class will be closed, and any remaining registrations will be put on a waiting list. Students on the waiting list will only be contacted if there is an opening during the first week of the semester. After week 1, the waiting list will be discarded.

How to Register for FAYM classes:

Families that want to register for FAYM classes must follow all steps below. If you do not complete all steps, IN ORDER, your registration will not be complete and you risk losing your class registration to another student.

Step 1: Fill out a registration form. Click here for the registration form. You must fill out all information as completely as possible, or your registration may not be processed.

PLEASE READ: If you need to make corrections to a registration form that has already been submitted, please do NOT fill out another registration form. Just email the corrections to [email protected]

Step 2: Create a FAYM financial account at faym.musicteachershelper.com and make a payment (pay after you get an account activation email). A link will be provided after you fill out a registration form, or you can just type the above address in your browser. You should not create a financial account without registering for your classes first! Click here for www.faym.musicteachershelper.com

Returning students don't have to create a new account! Your old account will be activated once your registration form is processed.

You can't make a payment until the account is activated (starting Jan. 1). You will get an email to confirm that your account is active (on or after Jan. 1). You should make your first payment as soon as you get the activation notice (on or after Jan.1 ). 

Upon registration (and activation of your account), a minimum payment of the registration fee ($45) PLUS at least the 1st tuition installment is due immediately. If the required payment is not received within 3 business days of your activation notice, the registration will be deleted.

* If you already have an account, you can keep your same name, password, and settings. Students previously enrolled in a FAYM class do not have to create new accounts. Their previous accounts will remain inactive until a registration form is received and processed.

Step 3: Sign up for a music theory placement test, an audition, or a testup, if required.

New Music Theory students are required to take the placement test.

New band/orchestra students with previous experience need to audition.

Previous band/orchestra students that want to move up to the next level need a testup.

Please sign up for the EARLIEST AVAILABLE audition time. Click here to sign up for an audition, theory quiz, or testup.


Step 4: You will automatically be added to the Google Group email list. Communication and general FAYM announcements are MUCH easier on the Google Group list than through regular email. Please look for your notice that you've been added. All registered FAYM students are required to remain on the group list throughout the entire semester. Please do not unsubscribe yourself from this list as long as you are taking FAYM classes.

Before registering for any FAYM class, please read all of the class descriptions, age requirements, prerequisites, and other information that pertains to your class(es).

Please DO NOT sign up for a class in which you do not meet ALL the written requirements for that class.

Age limits are firm! Please do NOT sign up your child for a class if he is outside of the age range without discussing it with the director first!

Some classes have minimum/maximum class sizes. Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. If a class fills up, any additional registrations will be placed on a waiting list. The waiting list will be held until the first week of classes. No additional students will be admitted to a class after week 1 of the semester.

Please fill out all information carefully to register for any FAYM class. If you are registering more than one child, list them as "Child #1," "Child #2," "Child #3," etc.

All items marked with a * are required.

Students in band or orchestra should sign up for the SAME level class they attended in the Fall 2017 semester. (Your registration form will automatically be updated if you pass a testup after your form was submitted.)

Guitar and Piano students may sign up for the NEW level, even though they still need to complete the short playing quiz.

Percussion students have to sign up for a band class AND a percussion class.

Music Theory students who passed their last exam may sign up for the new level.

Registering for classes should take about 10-15 minutes. You can save the page to finish later, but reserving a spot in any class will not be complete until you submit a completed form. You should also have your calendar handy before you begin.
