Welcome to the online home of the Agoura High Music program!
The AHS music program fosters positive student growth through rigorous preparation, teamwork, research, enrichment in the arts and social well being. As a result of the national recognition our department has received in the fields of classical music and jazz, we have developed strong relationships with several of the nation’s top universities. Graduates of our program have been accepted to universities and conservatories such as The Juilliard School of Music, Eastman School Of Music, The Manhattan School of Music, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, CSUN Jazz Studies, Temple Jazz Studies, Northwestern, M.I.T., The University of Chicago, The New England Conservatory of Music, and many more.
Whether you are a current or prospective member of our program, we invite you to learn more about how your participation in music at AHS will help create opportunities for you in college and beyond.
