Taylor Swift Donates $4 Million for Music Education


Taylor Swift
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville will expand its territory with more classrooms, new theater and interactive rooms among others.


Taylor Swift forked out a staggering $4 million to help music cause. On Thursday, May 17, the country singer gave the donation to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to create more exhibit rooms and space dedicated to teaching children about music.

"In terms of what it will allow us to do, we do education very well now," museum director Kyle Young tells the Associated Press. "It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs and I'm happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who's in touch with a young audience? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking."

Dubbed The Taylor Swift Education Center, the section is part of the Nashville museum's expansion which includes a new concert theater, musical petting zoo and a shared entrance with a new hotel. It will open in 2014.
