In class and on stage, our teachers inspire the musician in every child.


MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Music is part of a well-rounded education and should be available to all of the City’s children. By teaching young people to make music, Harmony teachers not only share their talents, but help to close the opportunity gap in underserved communities.

DEVELOPING SKILLS

BUILDING A NETWORK

Every Harmony Program teacher is part of a network of community-minded professionals who work to engage and inspire young people through music. Our teachers collaborate with other educators and artists to exchange ideas and learn from each other.


Ongoing training, an established curriculum, and a supportive network of fellow educators provide the foundation for our teachers to grow and succeed.
