can I sign my child up for both the Instrumental and Performing Art programs?
Yes! Not only do we invite students to join both YAA programs, we highly encourage it! Through simultaneous involvement students build a greater foundation that is proven to further develop their performance in all other art areas.

Great question. Click here to see all of the audition and placement dates and to see if your child needs to attend one or more of them.

Don’t worry! Our auditions aren’t intimidating. At YAA, we hold auditions to best accommodate your child’s talents, interests, and level of experience.
Is it true that Mount Vernon students receive free transportation to YAA?
Yes! Thanks to our friends at the Mount Vernon Department of Recreation, all Mount Vernon students can access a free bus from their school to YAA at their school’s dismissal time. A bus departs YAA at 6:00, taking Mount Vernon students to the Doles Center for pick up.

dO i NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN INSTRUMENT?
Yes, except for piano and drums.
Do I need to study voice or my instrument privately?
Ideally, students will study privately as this promotes the most efficient progress and a sound technique. Most of our current students study and take their parts to work on with their teachers at their regular lesson. For a list of private teachers that we recommend, please email us at email@example.com.
