Music in Nottingham

Did you know Nottingham is one of the most diverse cities in the country? We have an exciting mix of different cultures and each culture has its own music. To celebrate these rich musical traditions, we have launched an exciting project called Music in Nottingham!

We LOVE receiving your Music in Nottingham submissions. Keep them coming! See below a fantastic entry by John, a city pupil, and his parents.

Another sneak peek at how the interactive musical map of Nottingham City is coming along. A MASSIVE thank you to all the children and their families who have already sent in their entry. We're still accepting entries so please get involved!

What is 'Music in Nottingham'?

In your lessons this term, you have learnt all about different kinds of music and how music is so important in many cultures. To celebrate the different kinds of musical cultures in Nottingham, we are creating an interactive musical map of the city - and you can be part of this exciting project!

We would like you to interview a friend or a relative, and ask them about any particular musical pieces/songs or instruments that hold special value in their culture. And if you, your friends or family can play/sing this music, we would LOVE to hear it! Watch the trailer below for more information.

We'd also love to see any photographs or pictures that show any celebrations or events where you may hear this music (for example weddings or birthdays). It would be amazing if you can record the interview with your friend or family member.

To submit any videos, recordings and/or photographs, please follow the below guidelines:

1. Make sure you have completed Question 6 on the form and a parent/guardian has given permission

2. Save each of your files as name>your school>description of content (for example: JohnB - ABC School - Interview with Mum)

Send files to MusicinNottingham@nottinghammusichub.org.uk via WeTransfer.com. In your email, please write the email address of the parent/guardian that was entered on the form.
