Nottingham College has been praised for its commitment and collaboration with Nottingham’s music hub, providing students 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 City schools, acad­e­mies and col­leges 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.

There were 27 City insti­tu­tions pre­sent­ed with the award, each applaud­ed for their extra­or­di­nary staff mem­bers that sup­port, encour­age and inspire their pupils to con­tin­ue learn­ing their instru­ments and par­tic­i­pate in out-of-school/­col­lege groups and events. 

The awards were announced at an NMS event held at the Roy­al Con­cert Hall in front of more than 1,800 guests. Lord May­or of Not­ting­ham, Coun­cil­lor Liaqat Ali, pre­sent­ed a cer­tifi­cate to rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Cham­pi­on schools/​colleges.

We want­ed to pub­licly acknowl­edge those that are going the extra mile to pro­vide music edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties for their pupils. We are proud of our work with local city schools, acad­e­mies and col­leges, and feel that it is impor­tant to recog­nise those who are help­ing stu­dents to engage with all aspects of the service.

Not­ting­ham Col­lege Music, Media and Per­form­ing Arts Coor­di­na­tor, Andy Oak­ley, said: We are delight­ed to receive the Music Hub Cham­pi­on award in recog­ni­tion of our com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing the high­est qual­i­ty oppor­tu­ni­ties for music stu­dents across the city. Work­ing with the Music Hub to host their Sat­ur­day Music School pro­vi­sion with our excel­lent rehearsal facil­i­ties has been very suc­cess­ful and we have been hon­oured to host their Sing City’ and Noise from the Next Gen­er­a­tion’ com­pe­ti­tions in our live venue.”
