Fourth graders at Mineral Wells Elementary got a special concert Thursday afternoon from a local musician.

Todd Burge local musician and a board member with the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame stopped by with the mobile music museum to help teach students the importance of music to the state.

The traveling music exhibit visited schools in Waverly and Wirt county.
Friday the exhibit will head to Ripley to help educate students about music that is influential to West Virginia.

Burge talks about why it's important to keep music education in the schools. "For me as a songwriter it was important when there was music in the schools because it inspired me, " said Todd Burge.
