Spring Session now open:

Tuesdays Mar. 10—Apr. 28


Sound Cafe: 2700 Chartres Street


Clinics are open to young people ages 5-15 with an interest in instrumental and/or vocal performance. The clinics are free, with dinner & instruments provided. No musical experience required, and no prior registration necessary.


Each music session includes an instruction period, a dinner break, and an informal jam session, during which clinic participants have the opportunity to perform with the professionals.  Experienced musicians, led by Music Director, trumpet virtuoso Shamarr Allen, teach fundamental techniques on a range of instruments.  In addition, participants have the opportunity to take one subsidized private lesson per week with one of our professional music coaches.


All young New Orleanians with an interest in music, as well as parents and community supporters, are invited to attend our Youth Music clinics as participants or as audience members.



Learn an instrument, practice the instrument you already have, or just come enjoy the music!


Instruments and dinner provided.
