Harmonia, a composition and performance studio in North Carolina led by Julie Harris, has become a magnet for creativity and prize-winning compositions. Students of all ages gather to learn, to share, and to create a musical community.
Our composition students write for solo instruments, chamber groups, small ensembles, film scores and other genres. The best performers in the area premiere the student pieces at concerts which have become a regular community event.
Our composers consistently win awards at the state, regional, national and international level. Our pianists enjoy both private piano parties and public concerts. They particularly enjoy duets and chamber music, and working with other great performers and composers. All students get a thorough grounding in theory and music history, and participate in informed listening. Online games, a thriving specialized social network, frequent studio events, all make Harmonia a vibrant gathering place.
Best of all, Harmonia students develop a lifelong passion for music. We all have a great deal of fun while creating or performing the highest quality music! If you'd like to contact Harmonia for lessons, or to perform any of our pieces, you can reach me through email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
