BluesEd is a non-profit youth artist development program sponsored by Blues Society of Omaha. The Blues Society of Omaha’s mission statement is “Keeping the Blues Alive.” The BluesEd program began in 2001 and was created to provide opportunities for Jr. High and High School age musicians to play with other students in a “band” format. Through a series of workshops, BluesEd students learn a repertoire of blues music, along with learning the art of improvisation and solos, the methodology of rehearsals, techniques of jamming, stage presence and performance, and the historical origins of the blues genre.
