About Trombone Shorty Foundation:
Founded by renowned New Orleans musician Trombone Shorty “Troy” Andrews, in 2012, the foundation is Andrew’s vision of sharing his passion to inspire the next generation by developing their musical talent and connecting them to the city’s unique musical heritage.
 
In just a short time, the Foundation, along with the Tulane University's New Orleans Center for the Gulf South, has established two important programs to cultivate and develop local talent--the Trombone Shorty Academy music performance program, directed by New Orleans legend Donald Harrison Jr. and Detroit Brooks; and The Fredman Music Business Institute, led by Grammy-award winning sound engineer Chris Finney, the only program of its kind in the region.
 
The Foundation’s mission is to preserve and perpetuate the unique musical culture of New Orleans by passing down its traditions to future generations of musicians.
