Maximo Park say learning a musical instrument should be compulsory at school – watch

Band want kids to have the 'creative outlet' that learning an instrument provides

Maximo Park tell NME that they would change Britain for the better by making it compulsory for kids to learn a musical instrument in school. “I think music gives us so much joy and pleasure, and it is hard work, but life is hard work,” frontman Paul Smith says. “Even though [kids] might resent it at school,” he explains, “if people had that creative outlet, that would perhaps make Britain a better place.”
