  • Engage with music making on a regular basis
  • Develop and grow their skills in playing and singing with their peers from other schools
  • Experiment with different styles of music and different instruments
  • Learn how music is composed, recorded and presented in digital and live formats
  • Enjoy music-making and playing in an exciting and safe environment

The MyHub Music centres are run by One Education Music. The lead contact for all music centres is Kate Moran who also directs the Manchester Youth String Orchestra.

There are activities suitable for all player abilities. Music centres offer pathways for all instruments taught in Manchester Schools and some additional traditional instruments.

Level 1 activities are suitable for beginners wanting to learn an instrument or who may have started learning at home or at school and want to learn more.

Your music teachers will help let you find which groups are most suitable.
