Who We Are

We are a group of parent volunteers elected to represent the interests of Music Studio families to the LaGuardia Parents Association (PA) and to LaGuardia’s Music Department, and the opportunities and requirements of LaGuardia’s Music Department to families. Our goals are to support our Vocal and Instrumental students, and to assist in the school’s mission to educate and inspire our young musicians. We also provide financial support for Music Department needs.
Please join us in supporting the unique talents of our children! Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to get involved.

News from the Music Studio

After-school Master Classes: This week, our two after-school master classes will launch for students who confirmed their enrollment. In fact, due to high demand, we will have two sessions of Audition/Performance Prep taught by Tereasa Payne of the Bloomingdale School of Music in addition to a 4-session class Performing a Song conducted by Neighborhood Playhouse. We hope to offer one more class this spring, either a second Performing a Song or Musical Theatre with Larry Pressgrove. Please be on the lookout for another announcement next week!


If you have not already done so, please complete the Parent/Student Information form so we can communicate directly with your child about after-school master classes and other opportunities coming from the Music Studio PA. As we know, teenagers would prefer to handle their own lives rather than having you tell them about things they can do.… Thank you!
