Newsletter FaySOM April 24/2024

Dear Students and families,

As we approach the end of the Spring 2024 semester, we are excited to announce that, as usual, we will be hosting several days of concerts at FaySOM. 

  • The recitals will take place between Tuesday, May 28th and Friday, May 31st. We will be sending an update about the specific schedule by the 1st week of May, and your instructor will also have more information available.


Returning students, please note that we have limited capacity and a growing waiting list. To secure your spot in our studios for the Summer and/or Fall semester, please fill out the Returning Student Registration Form Here no later than by May 31st. * Read below:

Registration Fees:

  • If you are currently a student at FaySOM, you won’t be charged any registration fees for enrollment in the Summer 2024 session.
  • If you plan to return for the Fall 2024 semester, please indicate your intention by completing the registration form. However, please refrain from submitting any registration fees at this time. I will contact you via email or text when we are ready to accept your registration fee.
*If we do not hear from you by then, we will assume that you will not be continuing as a student after the end of this semester.
Rate adjustment starting in the Fall 2024 semester
We haven’t adjusted our rates since we opened back in 2018, six years ago. In order to keep up with our increased operational costs, starting in August 2024, our new rates will be as follows:
– 30-minute lesson: $32.00
– 60-minute lesson: $64.00
*Dr. Amanda Virelles’ rates will remain the same for next year: $35.00/30 min lesson, $70.00/Hour lesson.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our students perform and to continue having you as a student in the near future. Thank you so much for your attention and continued support.
Best regards,

Dr. Carlos Castilla
