Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith will head to Washington D.C. next month to lobby Congress on behalf of music education. According to Audio Ink Radio, Smith will join up with representatives of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) to meet with members of the government on the subject of funding music education programs in public schools.

Smith said in a statement, “I am a perfect example of someone who’s been musically educated exclusively throughout grade school, middle school and high school by the public school system. If there hadn’t been a music program in my public schools, I would not be where I am today. Every kid — and I mean everyone — needs a chance to learn and grow with music.”
