MUSIC & MEDIA

The Music and Media room is open every day as part of senior and junior club sessions, a great space for our members to let their creativity run wild – young people can learn guitar, join in with open mic sessions, get song-writing advice and even record their own records via our very own label, Reet Good Records.

What young people gain from our Music & Media room;

  • Develop new skills or build on existing talents.
  • Build confidence through learning and performance opportunities
  • Meet new people and collaborate with other musicians
  • Develop on communication skills

See below to find out what’s on in the music room every day of the week.
