Dr. Valerie Capers
Born in New York City, Dr. Valerie Capers attended the New York Institute for the Education of the Blind before obtaining both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Juilliard School of Music. Her jazz and classical compositions have been performed in venues worldwide, including Carnegie Hall. She served on the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music, and from 1987 to 1995, and was chair of the Department of Music and Arts at Bronx Community College, where she is now President Emeritus.



Ms. Natsu Ifill
Ms. Natsu Ifill is a retired arts administrator who over the years has worked with, and assisted, the numerous arts organizations in New York City. Ms. Ifill held various positions within arts organizations such as The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Ballet Hispanico of New York, The Harlem Arts Alliance (HAA) and our very own HSA.


Dr. Vivian O. Windley

Dr. Windley is known for innumerable accomplishments, among them being Professor Emerita, the City College of New York. For 18 years she led the way in helping students and colleagues to rethink the traditional role of a teacher in the classroom. Dr. Windley gained national recognition as Director of the TTT (Training Teachers of Teachers) program. Using the "open classroom model," the role of the teacher changed from dispenser of knowledge to one who guides, facilitates, stimulates and extends children's experiences. She has taught, conducted workshops, trained and produced a seven-part radio series on education for teachers.


The Harlem School of the Arts is funded, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York City Council, Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, New York City Department of Youth and Community Development, JPMorgan Chase, The Carnegie Corporation, Altman Foundation, Jean and Louis Dreyfus Foundation, United Jewish Appeal, The Sidney Frank Foundation, The Clark Foundation and other corporate, foundation and individual partners. HSA is a member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts.
