We are delighted to be able to offer our students placements as Mentors with the Nottingham Music Hub. This pioneering role involves working closely with a primary school in Nottingham on a weekly basis, to put into practice music’s proven potential to be transformative within disadvantaged communities.
Working with professional musicians and teachers from the Nottingham City Music Service, the programme's lead partner, they will not only gain valuable experience for their professional careers, they will also have a direct and potentially transformative impact on the lives of local children and communities.
Inspiring and encouraging children to be creative with their instrument has been a challenging, yet incredibly wonderful and eye-opening experience – I have developed invaluable skills from the programme and hope I am given the opportunity to work with In Harmony again in the future.

It has been great to be a part of such an inspirational and innovative project that has evidently improved the children’s musical experiences and provided them with performance opportunities that I would have relished at school.
