Work with us

Musical inclusion ensures that all children can make music, by removing barriers to music-making that some young people face.

We put the voices of children and young people at the heart of our work and embrace a wide range of styles and genres to develop children's musical, social, and personal skills.

MAC is a strategic partner of Youth Music working towards creating a musically inclusive England, to ensure every child can access creative music-making opportunities, regardless of their circumstances.

Primary & special schools

We work in partnership with primary schools, special schools and pupil referral units across the West Midlands and design bespoke packages that offer a child-centred, creative approach to making music.

Our workshops cover music technology, improvisation, and give children the chance to perform and record their own music - with the chance to experiment with music production in MAC's Recording Studio.

We work towards developing the children's musical, social and personal skills including communication, self-efficacy, confidence, co-ordination, empathy, turn taking and self-esteem.

Our practitioners are specialists at delivering inclusive music-making with children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. MAC Makes Music offer individual or small group sessions depending on the needs of the children.

Get in touch with us to find out more or book a session at your school.

Youth Justice programmes

Building on our expertise and experience of working in Pupil Referral Units, we now work in partnership with local Youth Justice Services. Our Music Leaders offer young people a creative outlet through individual music-making sessions in community settings.

Sessions are designed around the needs and interests of the young person and usually include beat making, lyric writing, rapping, mixing and recording (with a studio visit).

Music Education Hubs

We work closely with Music Education Hubs regionally and nationally to explore how inclusion can be embedded strategically, throughout the workforce, and across all opportunities for children and young people.

Our five partner organisations are Services for Education, Coventry Music, SIPS Music & Arts, Solihull Music, and Severn Arts.
