Have questions about our enrollment process? Here’s how it works. The Roots of Music welcomes new students four times a year: early January, immediately after Mardi Gras, beginning of June, beginning of September. Interested families submit an application online. Two to three weeks before each application period, Roots staff reaches out to our applicant pool. New student meetings occur one week before their start date. And lastly, there is always a waiting list.
