Our programs were created to supplement current arts programming, as well as provide access to facilities located in underserved arts areas. We currently offer three unique builder programs: (Subsidized programming)
AFTH Youth Harp Program: (youth ages 6 yrs to 17 yrs) Our music enrichment programs were created to provide music programming to organizations that currently do not offer a music-curricula as well as to supplement, current programs that are looking for a unique addition for their students.
AFTH Music Technology Program: (youth and music students) Though AFTH specializes in group harp instruction, we also realize that in a tech savvy world it is important also to add a technology component to our programs. In this program, students will learn the basics of music production using software such as: Presonus studio one, Garage Band and Pro Tools. They will also learn how to write and compose music using well-noted music software Finale.
AFTH Voice Program: Providing students the opportunity to learn how to sing and play the harp simultaneously. This program teaches students using a 20/20/20 method: 20 minutes learning to play a song of interest on the harp; 20 minutes warming up voice and learning a song and 20 minutes putting the two together.
Here are a few other programs worth mentioning!
