Creative response showcase

We want young people to get really creative with classical music and develop imaginative responses to the Ten Pieces music.

Find out how you can upload new creative responses, including performances inspired by the Nutcracker Live Lesson.

We're not just looking for musical responses - children can get creative in any art form, from composition and dance to digital art and poetry!

Get inspired by looking at some brilliantly imaginative submissions below. We've received an amazing range of responses from across the UK so far this year.
