HARMONY HUB PARTNERSHIP WITH UTAH CLASSICAL GUITAR EXPANDS FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR!
 
A HUGE WELCOME to Harmony Hub's new guitar instructor Darlene Castro. Beginning in September, Riley Elementary 5th grade students will have the opportunity to attend classical guitar group classes twice a week. Through our partnership with the Utah Classical Guitar Society, Harmony Hub will continue to offer after-school youth group guitar classes at the Sorenson Unity Center on Thursday evenings. Music stands and guitars are provided for participants.
Youth City participants Ashley and Marlene, learning the beginning elements of guitar during the final session of music classes held this summer in partnership (Salt Lake City Division of Youth and Family Services). 
We are grateful for our continued partnerships with Sorenson Unity Center, Salt Lake City Division of Youth and Family Services, and Riley Elementary. These partnerships make it possible for the Harmony Hub program to provide a variety of music education opportunities for the students attending Riley Elementary, youth and families who access the Sorenson Unity Center.  The language of music is endless and we are excited for this new opportunity for the students we serve!
