This lecture/performance series, sponsored by MAPP Construction Co., The Advocate, ATMOS Energy, Slim Harpo Music Awards and Pal Productions Co, places music educators and professionals in schools across the state of Louisiana. Music educators and professional musicians participating in the program include Deacon John Moore, Bobby Campo & Mike Esneault, Theresa Andersson, Herman Jackson, Buddy Flett, Andy Pizzo, David Hinson and Johnny Palazzotto. Each brings his or her own unique style and personality and instrument, to the presentation. Students are invited to interact with the presenter and even participate in impromptu music lessons.

The Music in the Schools (MIS) has produced an informational DVD that features the performances and interviews of our Music in the Schools performing artists. These DVDs are available to schools at no charge and may be obtained by contacting Johnny Palazzotto. rhythmpal@yahoo.com 225-383-0968
