Trombone Shorty Academy Students
Free show: students from after-school music program for musically gifted students
Students from the Trombone Shorty Academy after-school music program showcase their musical talents!
The Trombone Shorty Academy is a free after-school music program that works to educate the next generation of musically gifted students. Following the path that led to Trombone Shorty’s success, Trombone Shorty Academy is based on Danny Barker’s Fairview Baptist Church Brass Band program.
Led by Artist Educators from the Soul Rebels, Rebirth Brass Band, and New Breed Brass Band, students enrolled in the Trombone Shorty Academy are immersed in musical ensemble instruction while learning the history and theory that are so deeply entwined in New Orleans music.
The Trombone Shorty Foundation’s mission is to inspire the next generation of talented opportunity youth through music education, instruction, mentorship, and performance. By honoring the New Orleans tradition of “playing it forward” from the earliest jazz legends onward, the foundation seeks to preserve and perpetuate the musical heritage of a city where music is everything.
Experienced and professional teachers, tutors, and mentors support every student in the pursuit of a well-rounded understanding of New Orleans’ musical traditions, experience in music performance, reading, writing, and now, even business, and the social and academic skills they need to make noise wherever they go – in music and in life.
