Have some questions? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for quick answers.

What is Zip06?

Zip06 is the digital news division of Shore Publishing covering the towns along the CT shoreline between New Haven and the Connecticut River. It is a community news platform that aims to not only provide up to the minute local news and information but also provides a platform for community engagement where registered users can share opinions, photos and information with their neighbors. Join in the conversation!

Are you connected to my weekly newspaper: the East Haven Courier, the North Haven Courier, The Sound, The Source, Harbor News, or the Valley Courier?

Yes! The newspaper that arrives free each Thursday in your mailbox is created by the same staff that runs Zip06!

Do you publish the Shore Line Times?

No. The Shore Line Times is published by the New Haven Register. You can contact them at 203-789-5200.

Will you publish my stories, photos, or events?

Yes! Registered members of the Zip06 community can contribute stories, photos, and events.

If I submit through Zip06 will my story, photo, or event be printed in my local newspaper?

Not yet! We're still working on making this happen. For now, if you want something to appear both online and in print you should submit to the website and also email news@shorepublishing.com

How do I submit a story or announcement?

If you are a registered user of Zip06, please click here to submit. If you have not yet registered, please click here to do so and then submit away!

What is 'News From You'?

'News From You' is exactly what it sounds like: It's news from you!

This is the special place on Zip06 where all of the news submitted by members of the community winds up. Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you getting married? Did your child make the honor roll? Those are all examples of news from you!

Do I need to create an account?

No. Creating an account with Zip06 is completely optional. You can read all of our stories, browse calendar items, watch videos, and browse photos without ever creating an account.

Some users, however, will want to create an account to submit events to the calendar, post stories and announcements, participate in some online contests, and comment on stories.

The choice is completely yours.

CMS PRESENTS JAMES LANDINO - VIDEO GAME MUSIC WORKSHOP

Music

Community Music School
90 Main Street, Centerbrook, CT

Community Music School presents an exciting workshop that delves into the world of music for video games with composer and performer James Landino on Saturday, October 25 at 1 pm. The workshop takes place in Studio 15 at the School located at 90 Main Street, Cenerbrook, CT. Originally from Westbrook, CT, James is a leading force in the digital music generation as a composer and sound designer for Boston-based Harmonix Music Systems, developer of "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band."
James studied classical and jazz piano at Community Music School for over 10 years. During his adolescence he taught himself digital audio production and electronic composition. He earned his Bachelor's degree at Berklee College of Music where he focused on Electronic Production and Design, a cutting-edge major that reinforced his passion for video game music.
James has worked with studios such as Disney, 2K Games, Square Enix, and Rooster Teeth. He is currently a composer and level designer for the upcoming Sony PlayStation®4 game, "Amplitude HD." In addition, James performs live as a video game remix DJ and released his debut electronic album, Transition, earlier this year.
Community Music School offers innovative music programming for infants through adults, building on a 30 year tradition of providing quality music instruction to residents of shoreline communities. CMS programs cultivate musical ability and creativity and provide students with a thorough understanding of music so that they can enjoy playing and listening for their entire lives.
