Student Stories

Tamika

Tamika began cello with the Harmony Program as a second grader at PS 152 in Flatbush, Brooklyn. She has studied with musicians of the New York Philharmonic, performed with Joshua Bell, and attended the Mark O’Connor Method String Camp.

She later interned with the Harmony Program’s summer camp and managed her high school’s pit orchestra. She says learning music “helped [her] to be confident” and through it she “learned how to communicate better with other people.”

Tamika graduated in 2023 from Baruch College, where she studied marketing while interning with Pandora, Sirius XM, and the Warner Music Group.

She has remained connected to the Harmony Program, and in 2022 was a featured speaker at the annual gala. Today she works in publicity at Def Jam Recordings.
