Instrument Repair Initiative

Your old trumpet called. It wants to move out. And we think we've found a pretty good home -- at a school. So whatever instruments you have, we'll take them. Banged up. Dinged. Rusted. Broken. We'll fix them and get them into the hands of kids who will love playing them. 

Join 5:01 @ Tip's!

Tipitina's Foundation

It's been 10 years. 10 hoppin', swingin', rockin', years. In that time, we've placed $3 million worth of instruments in schools, graduated 125 students from our Tipitina's Internship Program, hosted workshops for 1500+ young musicians, and offered music technology training for adult musicians. Yet, this is just a snippet of all we do. With your help, we'll be able to do even more.




Our Mission

Tipitina’s Foundation supports Louisiana and New Orleans' irreplaceable music community and preserves the state’s unique musical cultures. The Foundation grew out of the Tipitina’s music venue, a revered New Orleans cultural icon that continues to be instrumental in the development and promotion of Louisiana music around the world. Tipitina's Foundation promotes childhood music education, the professional development of adult musicians, and the increased profile and viability of Louisiana music as a cultural, educational, and economic resource.
