Is your school on the map?

Public Schools in New Orleans are working hard to build vibrant music programs, and to provide opportunities for students to explore our rich cultural traditions. But it's very difficult to get a clear picture of exactly what is happening in music education across the city.

MAPPING MUSIC invites music educators, teaching artists, community arts organizations, administrators, families and funders to collaborate on the first citywide, crowd-sourced database for music education.

Click "Get on the Map," complete a basic contact form, and we will be in touch soon to learn more about the music programs at your school.

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.
— Chiho Feindler, Senior Director of Programs and Policy, VH1 Save The Music Foundation
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.
— Scott Aiges, Programs Director, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation
