Welcome to the Preservation Hall Lessons website. The Preservation Hall Foundation’s primary activity is to serve the next generation of New Orleans musicians and listeners through hands-on education and community engagement programs. Our programming serves youth in schools, detention and community centers in the Greater New Orleans area. The core constituency of our music students are elementary and secondary schoolers for whom we subsidize or completely underwrite the cost of weekly music classes, field trips and educational resources.
