The Roots of Music

The Roots of Music Program fills a void in music education programs in the New Orleans educational institutions. Marching bands were always an integral part of the New Orleans middle schools before Katrina drastically changed that. Now many schools don’t even offer music programs anymore. Today the program serves over 100 students, making up a full marching band that is successfully parading the city since Mardi Gras 2009. The program provides music education in history, theory, instrumental instruction and ensemble performance. Furthermore, academic tutoring is offered to ensure the students maintain at least a 2.5 GPA in school.
