MAPAS logoMusic and Performing Arts Salford is here to offer opportunities in the performing arts for all.

MAPAS has worked in Salford for over 50 years, teaching music and performing arts to the people of our City. Today, the service continues to offer lessons for people of all ages who want to learn an instrument or sing. MAPAS are proud to offer the free loan of a handheld instrument to any child who wants to learn to play.

The MAPAS Centre offers the opportunity to be creative and perform alongside other people through a variety of bands, choirs, orchestras, drama and musical theatre groups. There are a range of groups to suit all abilities and ages. Our single monthly membership fee gives you access to as many groups as you would like to join (provided you meet the entry requirements/age restrictions).

MAPAS continue to offer a range of support to Salford schools, from advice and Continuous Professional Development for school staff, through to delivery of curriculum, whole class instrumental tuition and specialist instrumental tuition. MAPAS is a key partner in the Greater Manchester Music Education Hub, giving our schools and students access to a wide range of projects, opportunities and support at a regional level.
