Van Zandt jams with New York school kids
22/09/2011
Steven Van Zandt surprised a group of school children in New York on Tuesday by showing up for an impromptu music lesson.

The E Street Band member and his wife, Maureen, visited the Intermediate School 162 Lola Rodriguez De Tio in the Bronx to gift students with new guitars and amplifiers as part of the Little Kids Rock charity program and Van Zandt's own Rock and Roll Forever Foundation.

The youngsters played a number of songs and Van Zandt joined in with a rendition of The Rolling Stones' Satisfaction, before hosting a question and answer session for the curious kids.

He tells the New York Daily News, "Putting instruments in their hands is empowering. (Music in schools) is absolutely vital. We're the only country that thinks art is a luxury - it's not. Kids who take arts classes do better in school. Instead of saying, 'Take that iPod out of your ear’, it should be, 'What are you listening to?'"
