Morrison, who plays high school choir director Will Schuester on the FOX TV show "Glee," hopes to launch his own international network of performing arts schools.
These schools will combat cuts in music provision, which Morrison fears could prevent a generation of students from achieving their potential.
"I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn’t found that passion at a young age. I think it’s a shame and a travesty to cut that stuff," Morrison said to the Independent.
Morrison, whose Broadway credits include Hairspray, The Light in the Piazza and South Pacific, attended public school as a child before attending New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Currently on hiatus from "Glee," he is touring to promote his recent album "Where It All Began."
