Audio slideshow: Music workshop
Legendary New Orleans nightspot Tipitina's Uptown runs a Sunday afternoon workshop for children of all ages to play with and learn from the city's best musicians.

Many of New Orleans' music programmes have been on hold since Hurricane Katrina, so Tipitina's workshops are serving a vital need in the recovery process by passing on musical traditions to a younger generation.
