Workshops

The Delta Blues Museum hosts a variety of workshops for teachers, students and the public. Most workshops are centered around the blues music genre, while others are focused on music education. Teacher workshops are complemented with lesson plans and teachers can also receive continuing education credits upon workshop completion. Workshops generally run one to four days. Over the years, the museum has hosted workshops about the Mississippi Blues Trail, Great Migration, plus music camps.
