Billy Bragg on Q & A about the link between music and social change:
“Young people ARE engaged in the debate. But let me tell you this (about social media): nobody
ever wrote a tweet that could make you cry, nobody ever toured Australia reading out their
facebook comments. If you want to see the world and get paid for it, learn an instrument, get on
it, step up, let us hear your voices!”
Lesson idea: Discuss this quote, then write two paragraphs about how music can create social change.
