Matt Grimes, from the Birmingham School of Media, will be at the Pivotal Music Conference 2018.

The event, which will take place at venues in the Jewellery Quarter on September 14, will bring together speakers from across the country.

Matt, who will talk about the role education professionals can play in ensuring the ongoing prosperity of music education, said: “I am really proud to be representing Birmingham City University at Pivotal, Birmingham’s first international music industries conference.

“The city and region has a vibrant music industries across both the independent and major sectors, with a pool of fantastic music talent that has a global reach.

“From Black Sabbath, Steel Pulse and UB40 to Ocean Colour Scene, The Editors, Jaws and Swim Deep and now the likes of Lady Leshurr, Jorja Smith and Laura Mvula, a Birmingham City University alumnus, Birmingham has been at the forefront of producing and globally exporting fantastic new music.

“But Birmingham is often overlooked and has in the past seemed to be in the shadows of London, Manchester and Liverpool in terms of recognition as a music city.

“Pivotal now gives the opportunity to show that the Birmingham music industries is more than capable of punching above its weight, and successfully position itself as an amazing music city.”
