We know that Music Matters. We also know that everyone experiences music and musical opportunities differently. We want to hear your individual stories about why Music Matters to you. 

You might be a current or previous NCO member, a young musician's parent/carer, an aspiring musician, a tutor or teacher, a professional musician, a concert goer, a donor, someone who just loves music... the list goes on!

Your stories will help us to bring the similarities and differences of individual journeys to life in the most wonderful and impactful way. Real-life stories are important as they show children and adults interested in music what being a part of NCO, or learning an instrument, can be like. They are a powerful way to spread the joy of music making and they enable us to advocate for the importance of music education.
