Fort Belvoir, Va. — Britain’s Prince Harry is checking out the art and music therapy programs at a Virginia military base, where he is helping to draw attention to programs that help injured service members.

The prince was so impressed with the jazz and blues coming from a drums-and-keyboard duo that he joked, “If I played an instrument, I’d join the band.”

One of the players credited the music therapy program with helping save his life.

Harry was accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the wife of the vice president. Later Wednesday, the prince will visit with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

Prince Harry also is promoting the Invictus games, an international sporting competition for injured armed service personnel.
