Harmony Project Ventura began in 2011 with one teacher, 30 elementary school children from Sheridan Way, and 30 generously donated Home Depot buckets we used as drums to teach our first crop of 3rd grade musicians.
Working with the model of our parent program, Harmony Project Los Angeles, and our community partners, we have been able to take root and grow rapidly in Ventura. In 2012, we were adopted by the New West Symphony as one of their education programs. We are proud to report that our first generation of Harmony students graduated high school in 2020 and are pursuing college, and we look forward to celebrating many more achievements in years to come.
Because of generous donations and volunteers, Harmony Project Ventura now includes over 150 students from 8 different schools, 10 teaching artists, and a growing waiting list of students that are eager to join us.
