The leader of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband, has spoken to Classic FM’s Nick Ferrari about the importance of music education and his own struggle to learn the violin in an interview to be broadcast at 7pm tonight.
Ed Miliband told Nick Ferrari that music education is “something that needs to be valued” and can be “an incredible liberation” for many children
“I think there’s a danger that in education at the moment we undervalue these kind of creative subjects. I think we undervalue artistic subjects. Music, for example can be an incredible liberation for lots of kids and it can bring out extraordinary talent. It is an important thing and it is something that needs to be valued.”
