Info for Primary age range

We’d like to hear your music and we’d like to know how we can help you with your music

If you’re a primary school-aged child in Wiltshire and you’d like to participate, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you:


Step 1: Choose Your Creative Piece

Select a piece of music that you’ve written yourself or with others. It could be a recording, a video, a TikTok, a musical score, or even a graphic representation.

Step 2: Your Creative Style

Make sure you choose a piece that reflects your creative style. This could be in the melody, lyrics, or overall presentation. Might it be about one or more of the following things?(but it doesnt have to be!):

        • Being young in Wiltshire
        • Feeling or being different
        • Relationships or friendships
        • The Climate Crisis
        • Mental health & wellbeing
        • Ideas for new seasonal music & songs

Step 3: Complete the Short Questionnaire

Provide additional information and you and your music by completing the short questionnaire. This will help the organisers understand more about what inspires you and what would support your musical journey.

Step 4: Submit Your Entry

Send in your submission along with the completed questionnaire. Don’t worry too much about the quality of the recording; the emphasis is on expressing yourself. 

Step 5: Await Feedback

Once you’ve submitted your entry, look forward to receiving feedback from experts. This feedback can be valuable in helping you grow as a musician.

Step 6: Stay Connected

Keep an eye on any updates from the organisers. They may provide additional opportunities, resources, or events that could further support your musical journey.

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and let your creativity shine through in your submission. Good luck!
