About the Heritage School of Music:

The Foundation's longest standing educational program is the Don "Moose" Jamison Heritage School of Music. Established in 1990 by Edward "Kidd" Jordan in response to the frequent lack of resources available for music education in the public school system, the Heritage School of Music provides free weekend programs for teenage students from around the greater New Orleans area.

From the beginning, Jordan’s philosophy has been to give young musicians a solid grounding in the basics of music performance and theory, so that as they mature they can find their own voice. “I try to help them with their instrument and with the jazz vocabulary,” Jordan says. “Then they can take it and do something with it.”

In addition to providing free music education to young people in the community, the Heritage School of Music creates employment opportunities for the musicians who serve as teachers. These have included some of the city’s most respected performers, such as Edward “Kidd” Jordan, Kent Jordan, Germaine Bazzle, Jonathan Bloom, Edward Anderson, Leah Chase, Geoff Clapp, Brent Rose and Jesse McBride.

At a time when New Orleans faces extraordinary challenges, especially in the realm of public education, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation is moving steadfastly to reinforce the role of music and culture in the lives of our youth.

About the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation:

The Jazz & Heritage Concert Series is a program of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. The foundation uses the proceeds from Jazz Fest, and other raised funds, for year-round programs in education, economic development and cultural enrichment.
