Fireside's family tree is currently comprised of three branches, a performing and visual arts education program, a music retail store, and a theatre troupe.
Fireside Arts and Music was created in 2016 by local music and theatre teaching artist, Tyler Phillips, to offer the immensely talented young artists of the 285 corridor a place to learn, discover new passions, and create impactful performances and long-lasting memories.
While FAM's main focus is GROUP LEARNING , the studio is also proud to have relationships with some of Colorado's finest PRIVATE LESSON instructors. In April of 2018, the Fireside Arts and Music ownership team was augmented by the addition of Jeff and Danielle Roberts whose children have been FAM students from day one!
As part of our education program, we groom our students who have an interest in artistic careers for leadership, creative, and administrative positions within our company. There is no training like on-the-job training!
In order to provide our creative community with the best access to top of the line instruments, sheet music, and accessories, the FAM ownership team founded FIRESIDE MOUNTAIN MUSIC STORE in the Green Valley Shopping in Conifer. Our retail store is home to some of the industry's leading brands including Hartke, Seagull, Ernie Ball, Vandoren, Danelectro, Dunlop, Boss, and Roland.
The most recent addition to the Fireside Family Tree is our theatre troupe, THE FIRESIDE PLAYERS. The players (previously known as "Campfire Stages") launched a student-directed production of "West Side Story" in November of 2018 and are continuing with a brand new program dedicated to paying all performers and team members of each show and donating a portion of the proceeds from each production to local orgs and educational groups.
