Music box: One Year of the School of Honk
The School of Honk was born during the fall of 2014 in Somerville, Massachusetts as a space to play and learn Brass Band New Orleans and other world music through a mentorship based approach.
The School, the brainchild of Kevin Leppmann, encompasses the spirit of a community like no other: free to all, the School is donation based and people are asked to contribute whatever they can. For many, it’s either the first time they play an instrument, or a return to one. It’s a process filled with frustration and joy. Participants grow as musicians and friendships are built, all while strengthen the community.
