Our mission of expanding access to music education is made possible through our partnerships.
Meet our Partners
Who We Work With
SCHOOLS & COMMUNITY CENTERS
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.
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.
COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
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.
The Harmony Program’s intensive and high quality programs prepare children to be valuable members of their orchestras and valuable members of their communities.
