The Challenge


You witness it everyday. Public schools slashing music programs, the rural teacher who is never replaced, the young musician who lacks a musical horizon.

The arts today are divided between the “haves” and the “have-nots”. 

World-class institutions are locked behind the walls of major cities. Ten percent of the population has ninety percent of the musical opportunities, while thousands of young musicians are stranded without the instruction or inspiration to achieve greatness. 

One of our students, Jeremy, lives in a small town in Texas that is hours away from the nearest cello teacher. Poverty, a large family, and a lack of musical guidance are challenges that he confronts daily. 

Another student, Sarah, lives in New Jersey.  Her father works hard to make ends meet every month and has never been able to pay her way to the Fine Arts Summer Academy.

Young musicians like Jeremy and Sarah face uphill battles and without musical instruction, they will leave a portion of their potential untapped. 

However, after receiving scholarships to the Fine Arts Summer Academy and instruction from some of the industry's best, we have seen students like Jeremy and Sarah overcome these challenges and gain the foundation they need to become disciplined and confident leaders.

The Future Is In Their Hands


Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

Music forms leaders: the computer analyst who discovered his love of math through jazz; the doctor who performs hand surgery using the dexterity she gained from playing violin; the politician who began as a theater major and learned to capture the attention of everyone in the room. Such leaders wouldn't be who they are today without the influence of the arts. 

The Annie Moses Foundation works to mold new leaders through artistic experiences. By changing one life at a time, we're helping turn the tide to revive the arts in America. 


Student Testimonies

MOLLY had studied cello for five years, but the routine was old. Her progress had stalled, her teacher was checked out, and she wanted to spend more time doing things she enjoyed. She told her mom she wanted to quit.

Her mom said she could quit but only if she attended the Fine Arts Summer Academy first.

After hours of exciting and intensive work at the Fine Arts Summer Academy, Molly came back a transformed musician. She joined two orchestras, found a new teacher, and began to take her craft seriously.

JAKE was a self-taught fiddler. He and his sister performed original songs and simple reels at venues around town, but he was ready for the next level. So Jake traveled to Nashville for the Fine Arts Summer Academy.

After two days, he nearly quit. Jake had never read music before, and the show was ambitious. Plus, his technique needed reworking. But after a one on one interview with the Director of the Academy, Jake was given a personal practice coach to help him through the music. Two weeks later, he performed with 150 other musicians in the biggest show of his life.

Fast forward one year later. Jake has hired a private teacher, adjusted his technique, learned to read music, and begun composing his own works. He is eager for another two weeks of artistic success at the Fine Arts Summer Academy.

These are just a few of the lives FASA has transformed.  Join us as we seek to create extraordinary young people.
