Move On Up

Move On Up! and the Transition Project

Join us for our new exciting event, Move On Up!, a musical celebration designed to support young people continue to learn music as they move from primary to secondary school. The event is at Nottingham's Albert Hall on Monday, 11 July 2022

For Secondary Schools

Nottingham Music Hub invites all Secondary Music Teachers, Music Leads and Transition Leads to run workshops and break-out sessions for pupils moving up to your school in September 2022 to give them a taster of the fantastic musical opportunities that will be available in Year 7 and beyond! To find out how to get involved and register your interest, please contact Hannah at or on 07564 843944.

Units of work are being developed for Y6 and Y7 pupils based around the Model Music Curriculum KS3 piece Twist & Shout and will be linked to our Move On Up! event: these will be available soon. To further support pupil transition from Primary to Secondary School in Music, a Directory of Primary Schools in which Nottingham Music Service provides instrumental teaching has been produced and shared with Secondary Music Leads. By providing the direct contact details of Primary Music Leads and details of the instruments learned in Primary Schools, it is hoped that the Directory will support Secondary Music Leads to:

  • identify pupils who will join them in Year 7 in 2022-23, and begin to plan instrumental teaching provision so that children can continue to learn their instruments
  • build relationships with their Primary School counterparts, facilitating discussions about pupils' musical learning, musical opportunities and events etc

For Primary Schools

All Nottingham City schools are invited to bring their Year 6 pupils to this event. The event will include an opportunity for Year 6 pupils to meet Music Teachers from the Secondary Schools they will be starting at in September, and find out about the musical opportunities available in Year 7 and beyond! The highlight of the event will be a huge, celebratory performance of Twist & Shout.

Further details, including how to sign up your Year 6 classes, will be send out to Primary Music Leads very soon!
