Thu 28 Sep 23
Thu 23 Nov 23

Free music-making sessions for instrumentalists, producers, rappers and singers aged 13-18.

Reverb is for you if you want to:

  • Meet and collaborate with other musicians your age
  • Develop skills in songwriting, production or playing in a band
  • Create new music, or develop some of your own ideas
  • Perform live on stage

We’ll support you to develop ideas and skills in a friendly, collaborative and supportive space.

Each session is led by your interests. Tell us what you want to do and we’ll get you set up.

If you’re looking to play with others in a band or have a go at production, we’ll have instruments and computers available for you to use. 

There’ll be opportunities to perform, but there’s no pressure. If you’d rather stick to working on tunes, and maybe recording some, that’s cool.

When and where

Thursdays, 6-8pm, on the following dates:

  • 28 September
  • 5, 12, 19 October
  • 2, 9, 16, 23 November

We’d love you to come to all sessions, but it’s ok if you can’t make every date.

The project will take place at Contact, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6JA. Visit Contact’s website for more information on how to get there.

The gig will take place on either Wednesday 29 or Thursday 30 November. We’ll confirm the date, time and venue as soon as possible.

We also have an online introductory session on Thursday 21 September from 7-7.30pm. You don’t have to come to this, but it’s there if you’d like to meet the people who’ll be supporting you each week, and ask questions before you start.


Reverb is free to take part. 

To help you get to and from the sessions, we can cover your travel costs on public transport.
