Sunderland Music Hub works with schools, teachers, practitioners, young people and organisations across the City, to ensure all young people can access a high quality music education. The partnerships provide a range of music education activities from instrumental tuition, ensembles, access to progression routes, singing opportunities and large scale performances and events . 


Since May 2015 we have undergone some changes, moving offices and recruiting a new Hub Lead Manager. We are also in the process of updating this website with information about upcoming events, so please do bear with us.
