Premier High School – Austin South serves children who are at a high risk of dropping out, whether it's due to poverty, use of drugs and alcohol, or any number of challenges teens face today.

One teacher, William Padgett, uses music to stimulate the interests of his students through an after-school program as he believes it will offer many benefits.

"High school students need positive outlets for creativity and expression. Many of them don't have the means to access musical instruments," he says. "Music offers itself to these students as a way of dealing with stress. It allows them to express the feelings that they can't always verbally articulate."

In the Guitar Club, kids gather each week for new lessons and sometimes just to play for each other. It's here that youth find music to be something to bring everyone together.
