COOPER JOINS STUDENTS AND AREA MUSICIANS TO RECOGNIZE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS

NASHVILLE—U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper joined with music students at Hillsboro High School as well as award-winning Nashville musicians and songwriters today to recognize the important role music education plays in a student's overall learning experience.

"In Music City we all know music is good for the soul and for the heart but now we also know that students who participate in school music programs are less likely to be involved in drugs, gangs or alcohol and they have better attendance records," Cooper said. "The focus and discipline that are part of music education benefit all areas of study."
