Pop star Taylor Swift cut the ribbon at the opening of her new music school in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday (12Oct13).
The Fifteen hitmaker launched the $4 million Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The facility will have an instrument room and classroom to encourage would-be musicians to improve their skills.
Speaking at the launch, Swift says, "I'm really excited about this music education center and the fact that right now they have three different classes going on today. It's really exciting that we can be here on a day when they're not only unveiling it, but they're starting to actively use it today.
"We've been talking about different programs I can be involved in. I hate to call it a lecture because that sounds like I'm yelling at people, but we could do a Q&A (question and answer session) talking to students here and a songwriters discussion would be really fun to have at some point."
The school opening kickstarted a great weekend for Swift - on Sunday (13Oct13), she is due to accept her record sixth songwriter-artist of the year award from the Nashville Songwriters Association International.
