    "Adventures of Power" is a comedy about an air-drummer who never got the chance to play music. The director, Ari Gold, created POWER SAVES THE MUSIC to rebuild school music programs. He works with Vh1 Save The Music Foundation to find schools in need & bring music back into to kids' lives.

    Here we visited the kids at this New Jersey school as their new instruments were unpacked for the first time. Pretty awesome stuff. Filmed by Cindy Chwe. Edited by Lauren Auricchio.
