who we are
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Summer Music Academy, a joint event sponsored by the UAF College of Liberal Arts Department of Music and the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra, is an intensive two week program of musical education for students who have finished grades 6 through 12. Exceptions may be made for exceptional students who are entering the 6th grade and will be considered on a case by case basis. Written recommendation from a public school music teacher or private teacher is required for students seeking an exception. All students of the appropriate age and musical experience are welcomed at the UAF Summer Music Academy regardless of race, religion, gender, or culture. We recognize that each student has a unique style and pace of learning, and seek to provide opportunities for students to learn in their own style and at their own pace while fitting into the larger musical community.
