Honda Power of Dreams Music Education

Untitled Document

When funds for the musical education and arts programs in Detroit-area schools began to be cut, Honda stepped in and started their Power of Dreams Music Education Fund. The program offers music education through a collaboration with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and has changed the lives of students seeking to express themselves and continue their educations through music. As Charles Burke, senior director of Education at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, says, “Most of the children involved in this project would otherwise never have had the opportunity to even touch an instrument, let alone learn what effect playing music can have on every aspect of their life. Thanks to Honda, some of them will pursue classical music as a career, but no doubt all of them will never forget this experience” (DSO).
