Is your school on the map?

Public Schools in New Orleans are working hard to build vibrant music programs – but schools need access to resources and programs that can support this work. In our decentralized landscape, it's difficult for national and local foundations and community organizations to know exactly what the needs are. 

MAPPING MUSIC invites music educators and school leaders to share your school's current MUSIC PROGRAMS and to provide a MUSIC WISH LIST of any resources needed to strengthen those programs or initiate new ones.

Click "Take the Survey" to get on the map and share your MUSIC WISH LIST by May 9, 2018!

Why should you get on the map?

We are interested in knowing what music programs exist in New Orleans right now, so the arts community – including VH1 Save The Music Foundation – can assess the needs.

This is an extremely important project. Parents need an easy way to see which schools in the city offer music programs. Arts organizations also need a handy reference for which schools might make good partners. And funders like the Jazz & Heritage Foundation need to be able to see which schools have music programs that deserve support, and which schools could use an additional leg up.
