Kids Brass Jam is a reoccurring educational program that teaches, mentors and inspires students through music instruction on trombone, trumpet, sousaphone and drums.
Thanks to the support from Threadhead Cultural Foundation, Preservation Hall Foundation and the New Orleans Jazz Museum, we are able to offer this unique music curriculum.
Young musicians in the St. Roch neighborhood (Ages 9-17) participate in this exceptional 8-week session of percussion and brass band instruction with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Sessions are led by teaching musicians from ArtCamp504 and members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The Foundation’s mission is “to protect, preserve, and perpetuate the musical traditions and heritage of New Orleans." We will be connecting the music with the culture that birthed it. Students will explore from where the music came and how it has evolved over time, paralleled with the cultural evolution of our fine city New Orleans.
The final session of each series culminates in a public performance with the band at the New Orleans Jazz Museum!
