Our mission of expanding access to music education is made possible through our partnerships.


after-school music education programs We partner with schools and community centers to bring instrumental music instruction to young people in the communities where they live and learn. With our after-school partners, we create valuable educational opportunities while supporting the development of our students and the greater community.


Free concerts and performances for children in NYC Our cultural partnerships introduce Harmony families to a variety of performances and cultural venues. Visiting artists, field trips to performances, master classes, and professional coaching all enhance the learning experience for our teachers and students alike.


Harmony’s college and university partners make invaluable contributions to our work, from hosting classes and performances, to assisting in teacher recruitment, training, and evaluation.

We work with schools, community organizations, universities, and cultural institutions to create learning opportunities that have a lasting impact on students and families.
