Pia and Karen Advance American Idol “Top 13”

Two LaGuardia Arts graduates, Karen Rodriguez (’07) and Pia Toscano (’06), advance to the “Top 13” in American Idol. The 2011 American Idol has highlighted several contestants American Idol, Karenfrom LaGuardia. In the “Top 12 Girls” round, Rachel Zevita (’05) joined Karen and Pia. Current student, Alessandra Guercio, also competed this year. Alessandra made it to the “Hollywood” round, which is quite an accomplishment for the Sophomore Vocal major

Students may audition for the following studios: Art, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Technical Theatre, and/or Vocal Music.

This year, 664 students were chosen from more than 9,000 applicants. Students come from all five boroughs and reflect the diverse racial and cultural composition of New York City. Our Application and Audition Process is organized into three sections:



Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts is a high school specializing in teaching visual arts and performing arts, located near Lincoln Center and the Juilliard School in the Lincoln Center district of Manhattan, on Amsterdam Avenue. The school is operated by the New York City Department of Education.

Although it also offers academic diplomas, the school prepares public high school students for professional careers and/or conservatory study in dance, drama, the visual arts, vocal, instrumental music, and technical theatre.

Students are accepted based on auditions (Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music and Vocal Music) and portfolios (Art and Technical Theater). Their academic and attendae records are also scrutinized with most incoming students scoring at least a "3" - meeting standards - on their seventh grade standardized exams. Auditions are held in November and December.

It is difficult to be accepted into one of the specialied schools, considering the thousands of students who audition from all five boroughs of New York. Those auditioning for LaGuardia must realize that chances of securing a spot depend upon the ratio between the number of spots and number of applicants within that specific department; in other words, some departments are harder to get into than others. In the instrumental department, auditions are separated even further; the auditionee would be competing only against auditionees who auditioned on the same instrument, and therefore it is harder to get in using very common instrument than on a less common one.
