Big Music Project

You’ve probably reached this page because you watched a video of our Youtuber friend DanTDM with some of his mates from Minecraft performing at the incredible Royal Albert Hall. Or maybe you found us through the Big Music Project? This is a Lottery-funded project, partnered with Capital - the UK’s number one hit music station, which gives real opportunities and careers advise to young people looking to get into the music industry.


So why should you keep reading? Because if you’re into music, we have an incredible opportunity for you.

The Big Music Project and DanTDM are teaming up to give you the chance to create a track (short piece of music) that Dan will use on his very own YouTube channel as an intro theme tune. What’s more, the winner will develop their track with Dan at Capital, which we will be filming on the day.

Don’t worry though; you don’t need any previous experience of making music for this. Just the willingness to give it a go! There are a tonne of free music apps that you can download to help you make your masterpiece. 

If this sounds up your street, read on...

How to enter?

All you need to do is create a short track that you think would work well on Dan’s channel as a title track. If you need a bit of inspiration, head over to Dan’s channel and check out some of his videos at TheDiamondMinecart .
