About Nottingham Music Service

Nottingham Music Service has the ambition to provide outstanding and inspiring musical opportunities for young people in Nottingham City, in terms of access, inclusion, quality, progression, and civic and community connections.
Our vision is that all children and young people in Nottingham have an inspiring and rewarding experience of making music with others.
Our mission is to facilitate joyous, life-enhancing and confidence-building experiences that equip children and young people with perseverance, self-belief and a life-long love of music.

We believe that:
• Participation should reflect diversity and that pathways should be affordable and accessible to all
• Opportunities should enable all children and young people to progress to achieve the best that they can and wish to
• Music making should play a vital role in the life of the city, promoting community cohesion.

Nottingham Music School runs predominantly on Saturday mornings at Nottingham Academy, and currently comprises of the Robin Hood Youth Orchestra (RHYO), RHYO Intermediate Orchestra, a ‘popular music’ school with focused support for student-led bands, and a world music provision. Together with the Area Bands, these ensembles provide vital progression routes in addition to pupils’ in school instrumental lessons.

The Music Service runs large-scale events throughout the year for a mixture of participants, including pupils from Nottingham Music School, Area Bands, WCET programmes, primary and secondary school choirs, individual singers and student-led bands. Many of these events also tie in to the wider life of the city.

An Exam and Accreditation Strategy was put in place in 2011 following support from the ABRSM to devise a set of bespoke ensemble pieces for the ABRSM Music Medals and a flexible approach regarding mixed instrument teaching at Grade 1 level. The exam strategy has been a huge success over the last 5 years: with relatively little history of pupils taking exams in the city, we are thrilled that 406 young people have gained a formal accreditation (music medal or grade exam) in 2015.
