Confetti is set to become a leading force in contemporary music education with the creation of our new home for music and live events in Nottingham.
We’re working on transforming the ground-floor of the Marco Island building in Nottingham into a contemporary music and events education hub which will include music studios, rehearsal rooms, sound recording and editing suites, social spaces and a 300-capacity auditorium. The first spaces are expected to be ready for students starting a course this October and the full development is expected to be fully open by Spring 2018.
This means that if you’ve accepted an offer to study on both our college-level and degree courses in Music Performance, Music Technology and Live and Technical Events production you’ll learn in some of the finest studios in Europe!
“We have always re-invested in our facilities to stay current, but this development takes our provision for music and events to another level. It makes Nottingham a “must go to” destination for contemporary music education.”
Craig Chettle, Founder and Chief Executive at CICT
The new music hub is going to be kitted out with all the latest industry-standard equipment, and acoustic and technical design for the new spaces is being delivered by renowned industry specialists White Mark.
“Confetti’s new Contemporary Music Hub will, undoubtedly, be an educational centre of European significance. Its facilities – both in quality and variety, will fully reflect the highest standards of the professional work place and offer students a learning experience in a context that truly represents the world in which they hope to succeed.”
David Bell, Managing Director White Mark
The location of the new music hub places our students right on the doorstep of the UK’s largest musical instruments retailer and our close partners Professional Music Technology.
“The Marco Island Development will undoubtedly become the UK’s centre of excellence for music technology education. By working closely with Confetti, our company will ensure that the facility and its community of students will have access to cutting-edge music technology, performance-based equipment and exclusive events.”
Simon Gilson, PMT Chief Executive Officer
The new music hub will not only be a teaching space, but together with our partners at Nottingham Trent University, we’ll also run a distinctive programme of public-facing activities, such as gigs and events.
