Are there any music stores in New Orleans that sell handmade cajun accordions?

I know there are shops outside the city in smaller towns in Louisiana. But are there any musical instrument stores in the central city area that carry them?

I found this site using Google:
http://www.cajunmarket.com/Hohner/Hohner-Accordions/index.htm

This site lists builders of cajun accordions

College problem what do I do?

I am currently a freshman music major at Louisiana Lafayette and I absolutely hate it. I am either going to drop out or maybe stay until the end of the semester although I don’t want to. I am considering options like Berklee College of music or just moving somewhere and working and starting a band while completing an online degree in something besides music. I can’t figure out what I should do. What do you think?

My best recommendation would be to make sure you have all the info you need before you make a final decision. Berklee is a great school and will undoubtedly provide a different experience than your current school. But that doesn’t mean it will be a great fit either.

If you do choose to go the online route I would recommend contacting a number of schools so you can find the best fit for you and your needs (tuition, schedule, career opportunities, etc.) and weigh that against Berklee. This site has some good information on online degrees in a variety of specialties and some colleges to help begin/expand your search if you go that route:

Good Luck!

What are some colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Siences as a major?

or criminal justice? Also what are some LA. colleges that offer minors in music?

Colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Science as a major include Loyola, Our Lady of the Lake, and McNeese State. Of those, Loyola is by far the best.
Colleges in LA that offer Criminal Justice as a major are listed here: http://www.uscollegesearch.org/louisiana-criminal-justice-colleges.html (under "Additional Louisiana Criminal Justice Colleges"–starting with Bossier Parish CC)
Most colleges, especially large ones, will have a music minor.

I’m looking for a famous actor, that was born in Louisiana, but is part french. Know any?

I’m doing a french project for school. And I need to talk about different literature, or music in loisiana that was inspired by french people, or france. Yeah, I’m confused too. Loisiana is partly french anyways. I think. My point is, I need a famous actor that’s part french, who was born in loisiana. It’d be awsome if you could help! Thanks!

Since its inception, music has been the most loved source of entertainment and people with different tastes and likings admire several kinds of music. It has different kinds and forms. Across the world different kinds of music has evolved with the emergence of distinctive civilizations and the characteristic nature of the people in different countries etc. The influence of music can be felt in every corner of the world. Various genre of music like rock, pop, classical, jazz etc have been immensely applauded by the people. Country Music

is also well accepted and admired by the music listeners across the globe. This highly melodious and mellifluous form of music is awesomely pure and subtle. Unlike the conventional pop and metal music, this genre is known for its flawless and soft rhythms that are soothing to the ears and pleasant to the soul. Many popular artists have given amazing performances and great albums that have remarkable influences from this music. These albums have achieved admirable success and recognition from the listeners.

Country music is a remarkably enticing genre of music that focuses on the melodies and the rhythms. It is identified by its immensely mellifluous tones and upbeat numbers. It is a blend of various distinctive music forms from across the world and mainly has influences from the music that was originated in the southern parts of the United States and the region of Appalachian Mountains. Around 1920, this category rapidly evolved and gained popularity among the masses. This kind of music has its roots in the various traditional and classical types like folk music, old times music, Celtic music, gospel and the blues. In the southern United States the various ethnic groups created music of different styles and the combination of all these styles emerged as the Western Music that comprises a major part of the country and western music.

There have been a number of artists and performers who have gained immense popularity with this genre of music. Elvis Presley, who was earlier known as The Hillbilly Cat was one of the biggest pop icons in the history of music. He won recognition through his immensely admirable country music performances. He was featured on the radio program Louisiana Hayride where he used to give amazing performances based on this music. Similarly Garth Brooke is one of the most appreciated country based music artist whose albums were chart toppers. He made short debut in other genres too. This genre saw its greatest high in the year 2006 when the country albums sales increased by the 17.7 percent to a whopping 36 millions.

The country pop has its roots in the soft rock and the country-politan which emerged as a sub genre of this music in the 1970’s. It was well accepted by the wide variety of audiences during the same decade. The singers like John Denver, Glen Campbell and Anne Murray were some of the most admired artists of this genre. “RhineStone Cowboy” by Campbell is amongst the best and biggest crossover music hits. The songs in this music CD are still hummed by the teenagers and youngsters. Olivia Newton John is considered as the best female country vocal performer.

Outlaw country revolutionized this genre of music completely with the derived Honky Tonk sounds of late 1950’s. After 1935, the Western Swing Big Band leader Bob Willis used drums as the major instrument in his band Texas Playboy. The drums were readily used by the country musicians and the rockabilly groups till 1955. Later, they became significant in the country bands also. The electric guitar was used in the bands that were originated in the beginning of 1938. Arthur Smith achieved immense success with the Guitar Boogie a MGM records album that declared the beginning of guitar as the most influential instrument in the country band.
