Nashville’s Musical Future Could Benefit from Law Rewrite
Music education in Nashville could soon get a boost.
The city is well positioned to take advantage of a recent rewrite of a major federal education law that opens the door to additional funding for the arts, music education advocates say.
The Every Student Succeeds Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama earlier this month, lists music as a component of a well-rounded education. It’s a philosophy that has been pushed by Nashville’s Music Makes Us program, which recently celebrated an all-time high of students enrolled in music education programs.
