Lavigne began his musical excursions at the age of ten first on guitar then trumpet. It wasn’t until his senior year when he finally decided piano would be the instrument of choice. “I wanted to explore harmony and the colors of music and the piano represented that vehicle for me”. Piano was just one facet of Darrell’s study when along the way he became interested in how music was put together. He decided to major in composition at Xavier University of New Orleans and was under the guidance of composer Roger Dickerson. As a pianist, his influences came from the usual jazz sources such as Monk, Bud Powell, Ahmad Jamal, Hancock, Corea, Tyner and Jarrett
