Ashford Arts Centre is a non-profit organisation dedicated to making the Creative and Performing Arts available to anyone in the community whilst supporting freelance professionals in music, dance, film and production. The arts centre offers:
* Graded qualifications in piano and voice as part of its basic membership.
* Work experience in music, film and radio performance and/or production.
Music, film and production students can earn qualifications in their areas of interest through the AAC training centre.
Ashford Arts Centre is open to anyone. However, an informal discussion with a Centre Director or Department Head is required to assess whether the AAC can meet the applicant’s needs and expectations.
Fees are paid by direct debit and collected on the 1st of the month. Members may pay monthly, quarterly or twice a year. There is no charge for lessons or activities covered by your membership. Fees for optional qualifications are not included in your membership fee and will be clearly explained before your sign-up to earn a certificate or diploma at the AAC.
Students are required to have an Ashford Arts Centre T-Shirt within 1 month of joining. These can be ordered from reception or your centre director.
Students will be awarded a Certificate of Completion for Grades 1 – 3 in piano.
Optional examinations for Grades 4 – 8 will be awarded by ABRSM or Trinity and Guilds exam boards. There is a separate fee for this service and students will be scheduled for exams only upon approval from the centre director.
Photos and Video
Students and Club Members who enrol may have photos/films taken of them performing and/or rehearsing. These will be used for Ashford Arts Centre promotional material including the website. Some performances will be used for AAC sponsored television, film and music projects which are regularly recorded at the AAC as part of student work experience and training exercises.
