Events

Halloween Howl

PumpkinOur first event of the year is a favorite among our students!  Donning their Halloween costumes, students perform for each other in a very casual, kids-only environment.  This is a drop-off event, but parents are always welcome to stay if you or your child prefers.  Too nervous to perform?  Dress up and join us in the audience!

Every year we hold a food drive for Operation Hope, so please bring a non-perishable food item to donate. (The food drive will continue in the lobby through November 12th).

Please RSVP below or at the front desk by Friday, 10/19 to reserve your spot.

FSM is expanding to Trumbull!

As we begin our 7th year, we wanted to share some exciting news with you all: FSM is expanding!  We will be opening a second location in Trumbull in late October.  The new school will be located off Route 111 at 100 Corporate Drive #A207 in Trumbull, just past the end of the Rt. 25 connector.  
 
To reflect our presence in both towns, we are changing our name to Fairfield/Trumbull School of Music (FTSM). 
 
We will keep you posted on all of the developments, including our official Grand Opening date and a new website that’s coming soon!  In the meantime, registration is now open for Trumbull lessons.  Call us today to secure your lesson day & time at the new location: 203-690-1888.
