"I was a French horn player and a vocalist, but my focus was really in music education, teaching children," says Matthew Burns, Kindermusik Educator.

And for once, it's good to hear that a community isn't cutting its arts programs. The city of Clarksville in Tennessee will expand its creative reach, and has asked Kindermusik Educator Matthew Burns to lead the effort.

The former schoolteacher was recently tapped as the new coordinator for the Community School of the Arts at Austin Peay State University.

"The Community School is ready to take the next big step," Burns said of the changes he will make.

We think it's a good beginning for many great things to come for Clarksville and the arts.
