Youth And Community

Bands, Instrumental lessons, Songwriting, Rapping, Sound-engineering, Arts/Crafts and more!

Age 10-18, from complete beginners to experienced young musicians.  Learn an instrument, write songs, join a band and a great place to try things out and meet people.

An amazing mix of people, ages and experience. Bursting with creativity, community spirit and a lot of fun!

We run over 100 youth and community workshops a year with young people of all ages and levels of ability, and everyone comes together though exciting and contemporary orchestras, events and other productions.
