After you register, you will receive a confirmation email.

The lesson fee is $100/60 minutes or $55/30 minutes and will be paid directly to the teacher at the time of the lesson. Please sign up for no more than two time slots. These typically fill very quickly.
- PRE-CONFERENCE LESSON OPPORTUNITIES
If you are interested in arriving early for pre-conference private lessons with our Sponsoring Teachers, click here to sign up for your spot. These lessons are opportunities for trainees and affiliates to work privately with Sponsoring Teachers. Make sure that there is a time slot available for you before you book your housing/meals with the U of R. The lesson fee is $90/hour and is paid directly to the teacher at the time of the lesson. There is no limit to the number of lessons an individual may sign up for during this time. There is limited housing available during pre-conference time.
- CAMPUS HOUSING AND MEALS
To register for housing and meals, please click HERE to go to the registration portal on the University of Redlands website. You will see three choices when you get there and they are organized by the date you will be arriving on campus. The third choice (Wed., June 19) is the regular conference attendance package and includes housing from Wednesday evening, June 19 through Saturday evening, June 22. The three dollar amounts represent $15 linen charge, $120.25 for meals and $168 for campus housing. This registration system does not allow people to pick specific nights to stay on campus. Click here for more information about the Brockton Apartments, the facility where AE attendees will be housed. The conference meal plan begins with dinner on Wednesday, June 19 and ends with lunch on Sunday, June 23. There is no option to pick certain meals - it’s an all or none package. There is a $15 linen package - if you want to bring your own things from home, feel free to do that.
- PRE-CONFERENCE CAMPUS HOUSING AND MEALS
If you have signed up for pre-conference lessons and want to stay on campus, you have two options on the University of Redlands registration portal. In addition to the regular conference package, you can select either of the two pre-conference options. The first option is for staying two nights (Monday, June 17 and Tuesday, June 18) and the second option is for just one night (Tuesday, June 18). There are options for meals for these two plans as well.
