Country singing sensation and album chart topper Taylor Swift is lending a helping hand towards music education, as she donated $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Not only did she make the sizeable donation to fund what is now called the Taylor Swift Education Center, but she also wanted to benefit and educate children, teens and senior citizens about music. Youth education programs will increase thanks to Swift.

“It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs, and I’m happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who’s in touch with a young audience? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking,” Kyle Young, the museum’s director told the Associated Press.

The exhibit and classroom center is part of a larger $75 million expansion of the Hall of Fame. Swift’s space will be more than 7,500 square feet, be two stories and have three classrooms with an exhibit room. Furthermore, there are plans for a musical petting zoo and an art classroom.

Swift’s donation is the second largest in Nashville’s museum history. The center will open in 2014.
