Meet Harmony Program flute teacher, Maria Del Valle!

Maria has worked with the Harmony Program since March of 2015, but has been playing the flute since she was in the 5th grade. She chose her instrument because she admires that flutes are played in every culture. Currently the assistant conductor at our Flatbush location, Maria brings smiles and music to students in our Saturday orchestra.
