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.

Support Flooded Schools

We are saddened by the recent natural disaster affecting Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. Here in New Orleans, we are all too familiar with the struggles that plague communities during and in the months following natural disasters. As such, we’d like to extend our help to central Louisiana in the best way we know how—through music.




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.
