The majority of our work takes place with schools from across Greater Manchester. Whether we’re welcoming you to the Hall for a one-off visit or a longer term project, we believe in giving all children the opportunity to experience music and creativity from an early age.

Schools can book workshops and tours of the Hall at any time through the year. A day or half day visit can help students build confidence and communication skills, discover new talents in singing, music or performance poetry, and learn a little about how a major concert venue operates. Speak to us in advance and we will aim to tailor tours and workshops to your learning.

Every season we plan several longer term projects for schools who are interested in becoming more deeply involved in music development. Professional leaders and musicians will help children explore themes connected to the Hall’s programme, with projects often culminating in a public performance of students’ own work in our main auditorium.

"Absolutely fantastic...great fun and loads of learning going on. An inspiration."  Teacher, St Matthew's RC High School
