Yesterday, the Harmony Program held an open house for students and parents at Success Academy Harlem West, and we're so proud of their work!

Open houses are a great way for parents to come into the classroom to see what the instruction process is like for our students, and to hear them perform a few of the pieces that they're working on. Pictured (from left to right) is Harmony Program student Chris Marcano and his father, Walt Adams, who are getting a lesson on muscle group strength from violin teacher, Noah Luft-Weissberg.

Keep up the great work!
