AMS Membership Fee

At Asheville Music School, we’re all about finding the right musical fit for you and your family. For new students embarking on private lessons, we offer a two-week trial period with your chosen teacher to ensure it's a perfect match, without the immediate requirement of an AMS Membership.

Here's how it works:

  • AMS Membership for Private Lessons: To access our network of talented teachers and book private lessons at AMS, families with students taking private lessons beyond the initial two-week trial must have an active AMS Membership. This can be either $6/month or $65/year. Any changes to your membership, including payment updates or cancellation, can be done at our Billing Portal or by reaching out to
  • Direct Payment to Teachers: Remember, while the AMS Membership allows you to arrange private lessons, the actual lesson tuition is separate and paid directly to your teacher, not to AMS.
  • What the AMS Membership Covers: The AMS Membership provides the opportunity to connect with and take lessons from our private teachers at the school. It does not include the cost of private lesson tuition, group class tuition, ensemble membership, or summer camp fees — those are additional and paid as per the respective programs.


By registering and paying for our memberships, in consideration of my (and/or my child’s) participation in this activity, I hereby release and discharge Asheville Music School, and its representatives, independent contractors, board of directors, volunteers, successors, and assigns, from any and all liability arising from accident, injury, and illness that I (he/she) may suffer as a result of my (our) participation in this activity. I (we) also will follow the rules and regulations set by Asheville Music School and above named parties. Parent or guardian must sign for anyone under age 18.
