In October (date to be confirmed) we will be bringing you a new, refreshed Saturday session called The Drop.

You’ll be able to choose from a music technology session, or a band session.

Come along and this time YOU get to shape what The Drop will be.

We’ll be asking your views during the Autumn so that you get to have a hand in creating what it’ll become.

You’ll still get to:

Make the music YOU want to make.

Make friends, have fun, learn skills.

Learn or develop the skills you need to be a great musician – whether you’re a beginner or more advanced.

Be mentored by our music leaders – all music industry professionals with a passion for working with young people and making sure everyone can take part and no-one misses out.

Get opportunities to perform in events and festivals.

Interested? Sign up to our enews to be the first in the know or follow us on our social networks.


PARENTS/CARERS: The aim of all our sessions is not to teach musical instruments, but to mentor young people as musicians, and provide a space where they can explore their own creativity. They’ll gain an understanding of the skills needed to be a musician (skills that are useful in life), improve their musical and creative skills, and collaborate with others. 

* We welcome pupils who have taken part in our whole class music tech programmes in primary schools, and are in year 6 *

Want to help us to survive, thrive and continue to offer great opportunities like this to young people? The fee for Audio-Base is heavily subsidised: we keep all prices as low as possible to ensure access.

If you feel you’re getting great value for money and can afford to pay more, you can help us spread these opportunities to more young people – particularly those who can least afford them – by using the donate by PayPal button to the right.

Many young people miss out on making music – particularly those who could benefit the most. With you help, we can put that right.


Who’s behind this?

Our Saturday sessions are supported by Make Music Gloucestershire, the county’s music education hub which is funded by the Department for Education via Arts Council England.
