PLAYBUILD NOLA will host monthly “Build by Ear: Bridging Music and Architecture” workshops indoors and out at the New Orleans Jazz Park National Historical Park once a month in partnership with the French Market.
Build By Ear is an exciting new workshop developed by PlayBuild to show how music, architecture and a little creativity can be used hand-in-hand to re-imagine the world around us. To kick off the series, this month focus on native son, LOUIS ARMSTRONG. Kids will learn about Armstrong's life and work and then ‘build’ a house collage for him while listening to his music. The result: a take-home poster and an appreciation for New Orleans music!!
Find the indoor “Build by Ear” workshops at 11:30 a.m. before Kids Swing and Sing. Then, outdoor workshops occur in the Playbuild tent at 12:30 just outside The Jazz Park when the live music from Kids Swing and Sing series featuring Jayna Morgan and the Swing Setters begins!
