Welcome to MyHub (Manchester Music). This website is primarily for parents, teachers and funders although if you are a young person looking at what is on offer you will find plenty of information.
Manchester is a very rich city for music and young people can engage in a whole range of music making. Did you know our Irish bands are competition winners, our Russian groups are well known and respected in Russia and we have a whole raft of young people playing steel pans and of course we have a wealth of pop and jazz musicians just waiting to entertain you.
We live in a city where classical music is exceptional through the Hallé Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, and the BBC Philharmonic young people have the opportunity to join their youth orchestras, wind bands and choirs and to seal it off we have some of the very best conservatoire training in the country though Chetham's School, the Royal Northern College of Music and the Universities of Manchester.
On this site you can find out about the work of the Hub and how we are funded; our commissioned partner One Education Music and the cultural organisations who deliver music tuition and music projects in and around Manchester. You can also find out what is happening through our news section and access some photos and stories about Manchester’s young people and their engagement in music.
We will also direct you to other websites relevant to your needs.
