Little Rock School District security officer Chad Henson, plays notes with Thomas Jefferson Elementary school students in an after-school training session in a classroom at the school last December. Henson wanted to share his love of music, specifically the saxophone, with students at his school. The school didn't own or teach the saxophone so Henson reached out to the non-profit Art Porter Music Education (APME) for help. APME teamed up with North Little Rock's Saied Music Company to loan 4 instruments to the school and Henson volunteered to tutor the students after school. -
