Music College Counseling Services

Let us put you on the right track.

Whether in person or virtually via Lagond Connect, we will give you everything you need to prepare for the music college and conservatory application, audition, and interview process. We will also help with the planning and execution of pre-screening demos required for admissions, scholarship applications, and competitions. Each student’s needs are different. We develop an individualized plan to meet those needs. We mentor students and guide families through the entire process, tailoring a consultation package that suits the student’s goals and works within the financial budget of the family.

A proven track record since 2002

Lagond’s proven approach regularly gains students acceptance to prestigious music colleges and Ivy League schools, including Berklee, USC, MSM, and Harvard. Our 20 years of experience has positioned many clients who have studied with us to win national and international competitions, and routinely receive acceptance to their top-choice schools. Our seniors accrue some astonishing merit scholarship numbers extending all the way to full tuition, including room & board.
