Preservation Hall Outreach Classes to Resume January 14th, 2012

Every Saturday from 10am to 12pm, the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz and Heritage Brass Band meets for its weekly classes. Held at Preservation Hall, 726 St. Peter Street, these free, weekly-meeting classes are taught by Carl LeBlanc, banjoist/guitarist for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. We will be resuming these classes on Saturday, January 14th!!

Open to students between the ages of 10 to 17, these classes teach repertoire, parade marching and dress, instrument techniques, and music theory as it relates to traditional brass band music. In addition, the program performs at a variety of musical outlets throughout the city, including second-lines, festivals, and along-side their mentors at Preservation Hall.

If you know a student interested in the program, please email Ashley Shabankareh, program coordinator, at
