Important News, Updates, and New Information

Registration for the fall semester is now over. If you missed the fall semester, watch for registration for our spring semester! Classes start in January. Registration will open on December 26.

We are excited to announce the addition of a new introductory band class for students aged 7-8: WindStars is a class for younger students who want to learn a band instrument, but the size and weight of a traditional band instrument might be too large or too heavy. FAYM will own all of the instruments used in the class and students will rent them for use during the semester. The WindStars2 curriculum will be used, which is appropriate for beginning band students aged 7-8. Starting in January, this class will meet on Thursdays at 12:30.

The Intro Band class will still be offered, but the age limit for students will now start at 9 yrs old.

An important message about SmartMusic: The old SmartMusic Classic is being retired. The current new version is the only way to link up to your FAYM classes. Ask your teacher for a class code to connect to your FAYM class on the NEW SmartMusic.

All Band, Orchestra, and Chorus classes use SmartMusic for assignments and grading. Other classes may use it as well, such as Music Theory or Recorder. Please check with your teacher to see if your class will be using the program. As always, the SmartMusic program is not required in order to participate in any class, but is highly recommended as a practice and assessment tool.
