Challenge

Children and teens who actively play music do better socially, academically, and developmentally. However, many Louisiana band directors turn children away due to a simple lack of instruments. Tipitina's Foundation can increase the number of students who have access to music education by placing more instruments in Louisiana schools.

Solution

The mission of the Tipitina's Foundation is to support Louisiana and New Orleans' irreplaceable music community and preserve the state's unique musical cultures. The Foundation works to support childhood music education, the professional development of adult musicians, and the increased profile and viability of Louisiana music as a cultural, educational, and economic resource.
The Instrument Repair Initiative will strengthen the Instruments A Comin' program, allowing Tipitina's Foundation to collect, analyze, repair, and refurbish donated instruments before placing them in the hands of children throughout the state of Louisiana.

Long-Term Impact

After-school music programs will provide youth development opportunities in a constructive and enriching environment. Through participation in music education programs, Louisiana students will be better equipped to succeed in their academic and personal lives.
