Manchester has a reputation for producing vibrant music covering all genres. We want to inspire, facilitate and support the next generation to learn about, take part in and enjoy music and singing throughout their lives. We want to ensure that there is a coherent and high quality journey for all young people to engage with so that everyone has the opportunity to get involved.
We work with a range of partners locally and nationally to ensure there is a wide and varied offer to reflect the interests of young people. As part of this we support access to a music education in primary, secondary, special need schools and pupil referral units through our major partner One Education Music https://www.oneeducation.co.uk/services/teaching-learning/music/music-centres/ They employ a team of specialist music teachers who visit schools to support the teaching of music . Our grant to them also supports eight music centres across the city; two larger centres at Blackley and Chorlton and six smaller specialist centres. These can be accessed at evenings and weekends.
MyHub (Manchester Music) is part of a network of organisations across England, funded by the Department for Education (DFE) and Arts Council England (ACE), who are responsible for delivering the National Plan for Music.
