A solid musical foundation enables our students to achieve more than they could imagine.
The research is in. A team at Northwestern University discovered that children who studied music with Harmony Project became better listeners with better focus, and this engagement in Harmony Project plays a crucial role in closing gaps in literacy. Harmony Project is recognized as one of the most effective arts-based, youth development programs in the nation.
Harmony Project is committed to each student’s development from Kindergarten through High School graduation.
Our students thrive in a nurturing environment that offers:
All students are enrolled in group instrument lessons and ensemble classes.
In most cases, instruments are provided for to each child to participate.
Our ensembles range from Son Jarocho to advanced chamber music and Salsa Jazz.
Our diverse staff of professional teaching artists are accomplished musicians that bring a variety of life experiences to their teaching.
We love to watch our students gain confidence as they learn new pieces and perform for each other.
We’re proud to report that Harmony Project students have a reputation of being well prepared when they enter competitive music programs at the middle and high school levels.
Performance skills such as intense focus and working as a team prepare our students for accomplished lives.
The most obvious results of our success is experiencing our advanced students returning to mentor our beginning musicians. The young ones have someone to look up to, while our older students have an opportunity to hone valuable teaching skills.
We have entire families enrolled in our program! Brothers, sisters and cousins are all making music together and enjoying musical bonds and connection with community.
