About us

“Music has the power to change lives”

Musinc was established in 2012, born out of a targeted musical inclusion programme funded by the National Foundation for Youth Music. The programme is hosted by Middlesbrough Council, and is based at the newly refurbished concert hall and entertainment venue, Middlesbrough Town Hall.

Musical inclusion sits at the heart of our approach to our work and the principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion influence all aspects of our musical offer. Find out more about our approach here.

We know that music has the power to change lives, for people of all ages and backgrounds. The process of making and engaging in music activities can contribute significantly to increased wellbeing. We offer a range of music engagement activities including open access groups, targeted work for people facing barriers, 1:1 tuition, special projects, schools activity, and performances and showcase events.

As well as opportunities for people to get involved, we offer a range of professional development opportunities. These are for existing and emerging musicians, music leaders and music practitioners to develop their skills in leading and teaching music.
