5 Year Trophies Awarded

After 5 years of study here at The Frisco School of Music, we award music students with a 5 Year Study Award Trophy. This is such a great time of year for us to be able to recognize these students that have been so dedicated to their lessons. It's not only rewarding for them, but for all of us here at the school.

Pictured is 5 year Trophy recipient Maeve Moulder with her guitar teacher Mr. Wes. And thanks Maeve for recommending your friends to our school.

Also, in our south hallway, is our Wall of Fame. The students on this wall have been studying with us for 4 years or more. This year we will be placing 46 new picture frames. This is quite an accomplishment. Check it out next time you are on campus!

Congratulations to all of these dedicated students from the entire FSMPA Team!
