Lagond Music School, located in Elmsford, New York, is a charitable not-for-profit organization dedicated to music education and live music performance, serving a diverse community of students throughout Westchester and surrounding counties.
Lagond Music has created an innovative and dynamic approach to music education; teaching contemporary music with the same rigor traditionally applied to classical training. This regimen, along with our parallel focus on live performance, promotes excellence of discipline, expression, commitment and achievement in our students. These experiences not only help Lagond students achieve their full creative potential, but are equally influential in their academic success and social achievements.
Lagond students regularly move on to top universities as well as prestigious music conservatories. As evidence of our students’ successes, the class of 2010 alone has generated over $880,000 in music scholarships, and over $900,000 in academic scholarships. Several of our students have been chosen to perform in the annual Grammy® Awards High School bands, along with numerous other musical accolades.
With a focus on contemporary musical styles (jazz, Latin, funk, rock, singer/songwriters – encompassing all instruments and voice), frequent live performances, and a dedicated, hands-on, conservatory college prep program, Lagond Music works to bring out the best in our students’ personal and creative potential.
At Lagond, we take special pride in the strong bond of our community, including parents, families, faculty, and many of our school alumni who regularly return to connect and perform with – and inspire – the current crop of Lagond students.
