Many Texas musicians also went on to become pioneers in the world of Delta and Chicago blues.
Youth Mentoring Program
In addition to our numerous exhibits, TBM has established a program that focuses on educating inner-city youth in poverty-stricken areas around the region.
With a range of scholarships, these youth can spend time at the facility to learn about the music industry, offering them a chance to learn about management, agents, accounting, recording, stage setup, and more. In addition, an afterschool program of instrumental instruction is in the works.
