alec as child

The Founder of The Drake and The Drake Gives, Alec Glasser, learned to play the saxophone in a public school when he was 12. That experience profoundly shaped his life in ways he never dreamed possible -- his wish is for all kids to be able to have the same opportunity in their public school education.
