This is not about learning music - it is about using music as a tool for learning life skills. Our programme responds to specific need and its impact is evidenced by our established network of academic research partners. Anyone, regardless of age, background or ability, can benefit from and play a part in our programme. Participants own the entire process, and create new work that crosses art forms.

Ed Vaizey, Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy:
'I have frequent engagement with Manchester Camerata and I commend its imaginative approach in engaging other parts of local services, particularly the fire and rescue service and the health service. The arts can not only engage young people and children in education, they can also help to engage adults in a whole range of other local services.'
