The Hunter Street Arts Academy offers private and group music lessons for a fee. Instruction is provided by qualified Christian instructors to individuals of all ages in order to help them develop their artistic abilities to more fully magnify God.
The Hunter Street Arts Academy is located in the KidQuest building on the campus of Hunter Street Baptist Church in Hoover across from Long–Lewis Ford and operates as a part of the Magnification/Worship Arts ministry of Hunter Street Baptist Church.
Each year a non–refundable registration fee of $25 per student is required. This fee is made payable to Hunter Street Baptist Church. No lesson will be given until registration fee is paid in full. A discount is available for families with multiple Academy students.
Contact Faye Wilson if you are interested in registering for piano, voice, guitar, violin, flute, or saxaphone lessons.
Full semester tuition is payable to the individual teacher before lessons begin. In addition, students may be asked to purchase music books and materials per teachers instructions. Alternate payment plans for tuition may be available. Call the Academy office for details at 205.739.5350.
All Arts Academy students must commit to a full semester (or summer term). This is to ensure the integrity of a student’s experience in learning the individual instrument. It is also important that the student arrives a few minutes early to each lesson. Any student arriving late will be taught only for the remaining minutes of their allotted lesson time.
Students may enroll at any time during the semester based on availability. Tuition costs are pro-rated for the remainder of the term at a per lesson price.
Make Up Lessons
It is the student’s responsibility to contact the teacher if a lesson is to be missed. If the teacher cannot be reached, please contact the Arts Academy Office. Make-up lessons for cancellations are granted only for an excused absence in which the teacher is notified at least six hours prior to the lesson. It is the Academy policy that an excused absence consists of student illness, extreme emergency, or death in the family. An unexcused absence includes homework, athletic events, or a school activity. Only one makeup lesson per semester will be granted.
