The Gift of Music

Music is powerful, emotive and for many – a joyful universal language that connects people and cultures.

Here at Chetham’s Foundation, we are a charity driven by a passion for music education. We want to ensure that we can do all that is in our power to provide access to music to enhance the lives of young people. Now more than ever the benefits of music education are vital to post-Covid recovery of children and young people.

We know that playing and listening to music does so much to enhance a child’s development and gives skills that will last a lifetime.

Research shows that incorporating music into education at an early stage can –

  • Improve communication skills
  • Boost attainment across other school subjects
  • Enhance emotional intelligence, compassion, and memory, and even relieve stress

We want to ask for your support to launch a new wider programme of creative engagement and performances which will give more musical opportunities to very young children and their families in Greater Manchester.

Help support the future of live music and create opportunities for everyone

£15 will provide a ticket for a young person to see a live music performance at The Stoller Hall

£150 will enable a family with children under 5 to attend a season of Stoller Story Sounds workshops

£500 will enable a whole class of school children from Greater Manchester to attend a concert or workshop at The Stoller Hall
