Music and the Curriculum

Music and the Curriculum is a scaled-down version of the Hallé Education partnership programme, Hallé Inspire, combining music with other curriculum subject areas. Using music as a creative tool, the two-hour workshop aims to reinforce and deepen the children’s learning and understanding in a chosen curriculum area. The programme is recommended for pupils in Years 3-6, and is available to schools in Greater Manchester and across the north-west.

The project is designed for a class of 30 pupils and involves a two-hour session led by two Hallé musicians.

Some example themes include:

  • The Titanic
  • Evacuees and World War I
  • Reversible and Irreversible Changes
  • Rainforest
  • Peterloo
  • The Maya Civilisation
  • The Anglo-Saxons
  • The Skeleton
  • Celebrating Differences
