About This Website

The Adult Music Student Forum (AMSF) website provides information for adult music students, particularly those in the Washington, D.C. area. The site is sponsored by the the Adult Music Student Forum, Inc., a nonprofit corporation that promotes the educational and performance interests of active adult non-professional, non-collegiate instrumental and vocal students, whether they are beginners, persons returning to music after an extended absence, or advanced students, whether study is formal or self-directed.

We encourage visitors to explore the whole site, which should be easy navigate, and should provide for easy access by all. We welcome your comments and suggestions for meeting these goals. If you have questions for the sponsors of the site, please see the Contact page for contact information.
