About Us

Our Mission

The Harmony Program harnesses the power of collective music-making to help children gain critical life skills and make meaningful peer connections. Bringing music education directly into underserved communities across New York City, the Harmony Program creates opportunities for children to develop musical proficiency and social-emotional skills within a supportive environment.

Our Vision

The Harmony Program’s vision is to provide every child in New York City with the opportunity to make music.
