Tune in to the Roots of Music: Thanks to our partnership with Louisiana Honda Dealers, WGNO, and NOLA38, you can catch a glimpse of our students on prime time! Together we’ve created a PSA that airs during every broadcast of The New Orleans Music Playlist (3rd Sundays of the month on NOLA38 at 9 PM, then again on 4th Saturdays on WGNO at 10:30 PM). You can get a sneak peek of the ad right here… then be sure to tune in each month to see it again and again!

Meet the Roots of Music: What makes our program so special?  Watch and learn!  Many thanks to our friends at StubHub!, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and HBO, who produced this uplifting video vignette to introduce the world to our amazing students.

We believe music has the power to transform lives. The Roots of Music empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of our city. Our goal is to provide our kids with the resources they need to lead positive, productive, self-reliant lives.
