Make Music NOLA


Make Music NOLA is an intensive music-for-social-change program. The mission of Make Music NOLA (MMN) is to promote academic achievement, cultivate artistic expression, and promote the healthy growth and development of children in New Orleans through culturally relevant music instruction and performance. MMN provides focused, tuition-free, in-school and after-school music training to students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch at six charter schools and three community centers in East New Orleans, Central City, the 9th Ward, Mid-City, and the Riverbend. MMN currently offers instruction on string instruments – primarily violin, viola, cello, and double bass.
