T.J. Wheeler, a blues and jazz artist in residence at Grant Elementary School, trains students Tuesday for their upcoming Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ performance.

COLUMBIA — Musician T.J. Wheeler is at Grant Elementary School for a one-week residency to train students who will perform Saturday at the Roots 'N' Blues 'N' BBQ Festival.

"I learned from many of the old blues masters as a young man, but I never really had much to give back to them, economically," Wheeler said in a 2011 profile in the Missourian. "The only thing they have really asked of me is to take their lessons and keep their music and the history of their music alive for future generations.”
