Live Music in the Schools

To see how our Live Music in the Schools courses align with TEKS click here

 

(Limited dates available)

Texas Music Partners (TMP) has a project designed to bring professional musicians into the schools to perform for the kids. Each year TMP will feature a certain style of music, artist, or theme. TMP will come to the school and (1) teach a workshop on the season’s featured theme, then (2) a live band will come in to perform a show, based on that theme, for the school.

First Upcoming Season – “The Blues Is Alright”

Looks at some of the influences that created blues music and the different styles of blues, over the decades, including rural blues, urban blues, boogie-woogie, jump blues, electric blues, blues-based rock and roll and soul music.

 

TMP has the privilege of having a number of the musicians from Antone’s nightclub who backed up many of the blues legends who performed there over the years performing with us.
