Your Music Studio board is 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.

 

 

Whether you're a new or returning family of an Instrumental or Vocal student, we're excited to share this school year with you at LaGuardia Arts HS, where formative learning experiences, exceptional performance opportunities, and boundless personal growth create unique harmonies. TO BE IN THE KNOW about your teenager's LaG life - classes, practices/rehearsals, clubs, sports, concerts/shows, the wider LaG Arts community and more - we're here to help with monthly Music Studio meetings (in person and on zoom) and weekly Music Monday newsletters.

 

Your board is comprised of Instrumental Co-Reps: Rebecca Sherman and Monique Johnson; Vocal Co-Reps: Marcee Smith and Christian O'Connor; Co Corresponding Secretaries: Tauheedah Yasin and Danielle Soto, Recording Secretary: Catherine Bernstein and Laetitia Ducroux, Treasurer: Barbette Leonard/Treasurer Assistant Vanessa Enriquez, Merchandise Director: Marcee Smith and Merchandise Coordinator Diane Vasquez;  Volunteer Coordinators - Sherry Stuart Berman and Sonya Houston. 

See below for contact details.

 

IMPORTANT: in order to receive Music Monday (our weekly newsletter) or important email blasts you MUST join our PA directory ASAP and OPT IN to receive the info you need. Click here to go to the LaGuardia HS PA site where you can create an account on Membership Toolkit (the backend). Once you sign up and fill out the forms, you will get emails from the PA and Music Studio!

 

BOTH parents/guardians AND students can OPT IN, which helps to ensure that you and your student(s) won't miss a beat! Much information shared through Music Monday newsletters benefits students, and allowing them direct access to that information empowers them to take responsibility for their LaG experience.
