Nottingham City Schools were lauded for their commitment and collaboration with Nottingham’s music hub to provide their pupils with life-changing music opportunities.
Nottingham Music Service (NMS), a registered charity that provides music programmes for young people in the city, introduced the ‘Music Hub Champion’ award to recognise schools that have gone the extra mile to promote inclusive music education and support their pupils to benefit from the many music making opportunities provided by NMS. These schools have extraordinary staff members that support, encourage and inspire their children to continue learning their instruments and participate in out-of-school groups and events.
The awards were announced at NMS’s Christmas in the City event on Dec 12, 2018 at the Royal Concert Hall in front of an audience of 1,800+ people. Lord Mayor of Nottingham Councillor Liaqat Ali presented a certificate to representatives of the Champion schools.
NMS Business, Operations & Strategy Manager Michael Aspinall says: “We wanted to publicly acknowledge those school that are going the extra mile to provide music educational opportunities for their pupils. We are proud of our work with local city schools and feel that it is important to recognise those schools that are helping students to engage with all aspects of the service.”
