Austin Peay State University student Austin Ward fights for music education in Washington, D.C.

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University music education student Austin Ward is far from a natural-born politician; his first love will always be music.

However, Ward’s time as a university student has taught him that there is much more to music than just his instrument – and that music is worth fighting for at the highest levels of government.

APSU student Davey Edmaiston promotes music education in Washington, D.C.

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In July, Austin Peay State University music education student Davey Edmaiston boarded an airplane for the first time. If he was nervous, the Troy, Tennessee, native probably calmed himself by thinking about the importance of his trip. In a few hours, he’d land in Washington, D.C., to ask members of the U.S. Congress to make music education a priority for American school children.

“I’d never been anywhere out of the state before. First plane ride and everything. My mom was pretty scared,” Edmaiston said. “But we got to meet with senators and House representatives and talk about the Every Child Achieves Act, which identifies music as a core-curricular so every student has access to music.”

APSU Music Education Students attend state conference

 

APSU Department of MusicClarksville, TN – “Think Music. Think Austin Peay.” That’s the motto of the Austin Peay State University Department of Music, and earlier this year, Dr. Eric Branscome, coordinator of music education at APSU, decided to remind his students what exactly those five words meant.

“For the longest time, we have not had students in music education participate in many of the local or state-wide music education events,” he said. “My soapbox to the students has been, it’s hard to ‘think music, think Austin Peay’ when Austin Peay is not involved in the music education community.”
