Super Talented Matthew Smith is a Grade 5 standard violinist and also plays the guitar, drums, piano and viola. 

Incredibly he will take the lead when Nottingham Symphony Orchestra (NSO) play Die Fledermaus at the Royal Concert Hall in the city on April 2. 

The concert will make Matthew the world’s youngest conductor – beating the previous record of a 14-year-old boy who directed the Venezuelan youth orchestra. 

The schoolboy has been practising with the 75-strong orchestra once a week over the past few weeks and took part in a rehearsal at a local school on this week. Today, Matthew said he can conduct the whole of Johann Strauss’ operetta Die Fledermaus from memory. 

People who live nearby must come and see this on April 2!

ITS A COMPLIMENT! I THINK YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE REALLY GOOD AT THE PIANO WITH WRISTS LIKE THAT! Also like you could totally rock all sorts of bracelets! BE PROUD DAINTY WRISTED MAN!

I’ve always wanted to learn piano!  I opted for guitar and drums instead, mostly guitar!

Instruments as sayings from our band director
  • Flute: if I kill you, will you be more in tune?
  • Clarinet: If I had a dollar for every time the second chair clarinet squeaks in rehearsal, I would be God
  • Saxophone: Do you know what a C# is? I feel like I'm talking to a hedgehog
  • Trombone: Oh, you messed up that chord. What if I messed up your grade for this class?
  • Trumpet: If only our band was as big as a trumpet's ego
  • French Horn: Why can't you just pay attention? I'm a pretty person, that should be enough
  • Percussion: I could replace you with monkeys and I would get the same quality of music, but more entertainment
