Event description

Description

MLR is a one-day conference for anybody working in music education. Held in the prestigious and vibrant surroundings of the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, it is a call to action to keep relevant, dynamic, inclusive and engaging music learning alive for all young people. 

Powered by Musical Futures, the Music Learning Revolution provides a diverse range of workshops with practical ideas that can be incorporated into classrooms the very next day; a series of talks by leading voices from creative industries, schools and higher education; it connects industry and education, and creates a space for teachers to come together, share ideas, collaborate, network and above all make music together.

Musical Futures is a non-profit organisation working with teachers to keep music alive in our schools and to nurture the creative talent of tomorrow.

What will you get out of it?
