Why Purple Deer Music Academy of Fairfield is the
#1 choice for music lessons in the Fairfield County Area!

Purple Deer Music Academy of Fairfield is the area's premier music school, teaching students of all ages.

Whatever instrument you or your child wish to play, odds are we teach it: Piano, Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Drums, Voice and Singing, Violin & Cello, Woodwinds, & more.

Are we the right music academy for you?

Purple Deer Music lessons are taught in an encouraging environment with the student’s musical interests, level of skill, prior experience and musical goals in mind. All students can learn to play an instrument. Students are allowed to explore, be creative and have fun at their lessons. They are taught music appreciation as well as music theory, including scales and chords, composition, transposing pieces, note reading, sight reading and correct technique – just to name a few. Lessons at Purple Deer Music pair the student and teacher together as partners in learning.

Students practice at their lesson what they will need to do at home. Students are taught how to set a practice goal and how many times they will need to practice to achieve that outcome. This way, when practicing at home, students make less mistakes and learning is accelerated. Music practice is not viewed as homework – it’s actually fun! Students can’t walk by their instrument without playing something.

Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed.

Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by thousands of families for many years.

5. All inclusive “optional” recitals so your family and friends can share your musical journey!

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital.

Many of our students choose to perform in our bi-annual recitals. Our recital location has a grand piano, so piano students are not playing on just a keyboard. Our sound system ensures a quality experience for all!

Unlike other schools, parents never have to pay admission or any related fees for these recitals.

7. Early afternoon and late evening time lessons for home schoolers, retirees, college students and working professionals

Since we are a fast growing school, we are able to be a 'full service' music school. This allows us to offer lessons in the early afternoons and later in the evenings. If you are a homeschool parent, retiree, college student or working professional who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of our early afternoon or evening lesson spots.

8. Trophies, certificates, and award wristbands to celebrate achievement

We are the only music school in Fairfield that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces (see pictures to the right) by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder® is our unique method of music education that you can only get here. More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder® here.

If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.

Meet the Director

The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons encourage a student’s personal, social and academic development.

Purple Deer Music Academy of Fairfield provides an enjoyable lesson experience for each of our students with teachers who plan lessons that foster creativity, confidence and joy.

Everyone can improve their music skills. As a musician and music teacher I’ve witnessed thousands of students transform their lives in ways they never imagined possible through the power of music.

We make it our mission to help Purple Deer Music students explore and develop their talents wherever their curiosity and interests lead them.

Julie Blumenstock
Purple Deer Music Academy of Fairfield

"Julie works around the childrens personalities. My son for example is a visual learner so all of the music she teaches him she color coordinates the notes. She is very kind, patient, and passionate about piano and it shows through when my son plays! He looks forward to going there every week!"

"We feel so lucky to have found Purple Deer to restart piano lessons after others didn’t “take” with an 8-year-old.  The wonderful Patti kept things lively but also set an expectation to practice that helped a kiddo who didn’t necessarily want to do so. The year culminated in a lovely, small-format recital that really locked in did our child her enjoyment of the whole thing. She’s eager for more next year! Recommend this business without reservations."

"Hi! My two daughters started piano lessons with Julie in spring. One of the daughters didn’t have an experience and after a few lessons she started to play songs with both hands right away. It gives them great pleasure to be in company of Julie and learn more about beautiful music. Girls have already participated in spring/summer recital which is a great opportunity to share your work and also to learn from others.  Good luck to everyone! I would definitely recommend Julie Blumenstock from Purple Deer Music School as your piano teacher."

"We have 2 young children studying piano with Julie. From the very first day, she’s managed to connect with them, fully capture their attention and guide them in creative and engaging fashion. Julie has a wonderful rapport with our children and her teaching methods truly allow them to maximize their potential and blossom. She is invested in their progress and keeps in touch throughout the week to provide feedback and support which we very much appreciate. Her dedication is sincere and she genuinely loves teaching. Her love for piano is contagious."
