Although not a professional teacher off-screen, Matthew Morrison wants to help with the education of children, according to the Independent.
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.
"You’d have to keep up the grades to be involved," he said. "It would have a big element of under-privileged kids, I think that's important. It's also been proven that music helps you in science and maths."
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."
