The Don "Moose" Jamison Heritage School of Music was established in 1990 by the saxophonist Edward "Kidd" Jordan. The program operated on the campus of Southern University at New Orleans from 1990 until 2005, when the campus flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After Katrina, the program operated at several schools in the New Orleans area, most recently on the campus of Dillard University.

In January 2015, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation opened its new education and community center, the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center, which is now the permanent home of the Heritage School.

Many prominent New Orleans musicians have participated in the Heritage School, most notably Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Shamarr Allen and Sammie Williams of Big Sam's Funky Nation.
