PAFE Teachers Program

We have been so happy to be able to provide services for the more than 100 music teachers of our performers for the 2019 PAFE Festival. We look forward to providing this support again this year. To ensure students are prepared to participate in the Festival and have selected appropriate pieces, we require they be working with a teacher, and that their teacher has joined the PAFE Teachers Program, which costs $25 per year.

As a member of the PAFE Teachers Program, you will receive regular reports on your students’ enrollments, updates on the Festival schedule, and notices of awards your students have won. We ask that you work with your students to ensure they pick appropriate pieces before they enroll, as no changes are allowed once they have enrolled. We also ask that, once we send the finalized schedule, you work with your students to ensure their accompanists know when and where to be.

There have been some changes to the Syllabus, so be sure to read it. For important dates, please see the calendar on the PAFE Home Page.
