About Me

Hi there! My name is Jameson Forsythe and I'm the manager of the Fairfield Music & Arts. I've been with Music & Arts since 2010 and I started my career here in Fairfield. After going across the country and training a bunch of new staff, I came back to Fairfield as the store manager in April of 2012. I really enjoy my time here and I love helping kids find their passion and their musical voice, just like I found mine a long time ago. I've been making music on the trumpet ever since 1994 and studied trumpet performance and music education at the University of Connecticut under James Ackley and Charles Schlueter.
 
We love serving our local schools and are proud to say that we help literally thousands of beginners and advancing players each year. The schools we work closest with are Bedford Middle, Burr Elementary, Calf Pen Meadow Elementary, Chapel Street Elementary, Coleytown Elementary and Middle, Daniels Farm Elementary, Dwight Elementary, Eli Whitney Elementary, Fairfield Ludlowe High, Fairfield Warde High, Fairfield Woods Middle, Fawn Hollow Elementary, Frenchtown Elementary, Greens Farm Academy, Greens Farms Elementary, Holland Hill Elementary, Jane Ryan Elementary, Jennings Elementary, Kings Highway Elementary, Long Lots Elementary, Marvin Elementary, McKinley Elementary, Middlebrook Elementary, Mill Hill Elementary, Nichols Elementary, North Stratfield Elementary, Orchard Hills Elementary, Osborn Hill Elementary, Peck Place Elementary, Pumpkin Delight Elementary, Riverfield Elementary, Roger Ludlowe Middle, Saugatuck Elementary, Saxe Middle, Second Hill Lane Elementary, Sherman Elementary, St. Andrews Elementary, St. James Elementary, St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary, Stratfield Elementary, Stratford Academy- Johnson House, Tashua Elementary, Tomlinson Middle, Weston Intermediate and Middle schools.
