Andy Davis Talks Music Education and Little Kids Rock on FOX5's Good Day Street TalkDec 01, 2012
New York, December 1, 2012 - Music Empowers Foundation’s Andy Davis appeared on FOX5’s Good Day Street Talk early Saturday morning to talk music education with Steve Levy and a beneficiary of Little Kids Rock, Jade Adams. Andy shares his mission and drive for bettering music education across the country, and the importance of self-empowerment and creativity in growing children.
Andy touches upon the current poor state of music education, explaining that, “there’s definitely a wide-spread need out there and the reason why we founded the Music Empowers Foundation was because we saw that need.” Music Empowers Foundation’s grants to the Little Kids Rock program have already helped hundreds of children like Jade Adams to not only receive the opportunity to learn about music, but to express themselves with it. Jade explains how Music Empowers’ grants to Little Kids Rock “provide a great alternative for children who want that outlet through music.”
Davis also touches upon music education’s celebrity support throughout the years and especially, this past October at a benefit concert for Little Kids Rock, where musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Kris Allen, and Steven Van Zandt performed.
