http://PowerSavesTheMusic.com is an auction created by my movie "Adventures of Power" to support the Vh1 Save the Music Foundation, which is working to preserve music-education in public schools. We had raised enough to help the Foundation restore a full music program, and here Adrian and I visit the talented boys and girls in whose good hands the new instruments have fallen. We had the great pleasure of watching the new instruments in action, as the children put on a great performance for us. Thanks boys and girls!

"Adventures of Power" is a comedy about air-drumming and the American Dream, and the idea for the auction came about in a conversation I had with Rush drummer Neil Peart about the importance of music education in the development of the human brain and soul. This interview is also available on the Power DVD here: http://amzn.to/eyJBG0

Someone bought an air-drum lesson for $1100!

PS. I'm a real person and I'm not an agent. (Yes, my name was "borrowed" by a TV show, and no, I was not paid for it.) AND I make movies and play ukulele! Thanks!
