Youngsters should be encouraged to make music, says Sting
Children must be encouraged to learn to play musical instruments at school, according to teacher-turned-rock star Sting.
Speaking at the Hay festival, he commented: "Give them the opportunity to play instruments."
Sting, who recently participated in a reunion tour with his old band, added that the still finds the process of writing a song something of an enigma.
"It's still a mystery to me, the whole idea of how you write songs," he remarked.
This, he said, was unusual as he has been writing songs - such as the hits Every Breath You Take, Roxanne and Don't Stand So Close To Me - all his life.
Sting has also enjoyed a successful solo career since the 1980s, which has included collaborations with Mary J Blige, Anoushka Shankar and Craig David.Posted on 1 Jun 2009 14:40 to category : Music News
