Our free, weekly music-making group for young musicians aged 13-19. Find out more…

Songwriters, composers, performers and producers aged 13-19 – join us at Sing City to collaborate, create new music and perform across Manchester!

Sing City is a free music-making group open to young musicians (of any genre!) aged 13-19 who want to develop skills in:

  • original song creation
  • production
  • collaborative music making
  • playing with a band
  • studio recording
  • event promotion
  • live performance

You’ll also learn more about the music industry with support from our team of professional musicians, and be offered the chance to perform at a live night each term. You can help plan these live nights too if you like!
