Michelle Obama supports music education

In July 2014, the First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, gave the keynote speech at a Grammy Museum event in Los Angeles to salute teachers who use music in innovative ways as part of their lessons. She stressed that music and other forms of art often connect with students and enhance their interest in core subjects such as maths, science and history, and said: “For so many young people, arts education is the only reason they get up out of bed in the morning.” The event was held to raise money and awareness of the Grammy Museum’s education efforts which aim to bridge the gap left by previous cuts in funding and provision.
