New Classes to be Offered at Preservation Hall
Do you know a beginner music student between the ages of 10 and 17 who is looking to learn more about New Orleans Jazz? If so, we have the perfect class for them!
Starting today, Friday, August 3rd, the Preservation Hall Foundation is offering beginner classes in traditional New Orleans Jazz. Geared towards younger students, this class, taught by Sousaphone player, Jeffery Hills, and outreach coordinator and trombonist, Ashley Shabankareh, will teach repertoire, parade marching and dress, instrument techniques, and music theory as it relates to traditional brass band music. The class will also perform at a variety of musical outlets throughout the city, including second-lines, festivals, and along-side their mentors at Preservation Hall and advanced student members of the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz Band.
We are currently seeking students on trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, tuba, drums, and piano. Students need to require their own instruments, as the Preservation Hall Foundation is able to provide them.
Parents of students interested in this program should email Ashley Shabankareh to schedule an audition.
