DJing & Music Tech
Led by DJ Rasp UKDMC Champion for 2009 and 2010, an experienced professional DJ – you will develop DJing skills using top of the range equipment and have the opportunity to show case your talents at special events throughout the year. Music Tech sessions will help you to develop your production, recording and lyric writing skills, stage performance, and support you to produce and record your own music.
The DJing workshops take place on Wednesday evenings from 6 – 7 pm.
Develop your singing and ensemble skills by working towards creating your own harmonies to perform songs you enjoy in your own style.
The Singing workshops take place on Saturday afternoons from 12pm – 1pm.
Rock Band & Guitar
The Citadel is offering limited slots for beginners or experienced musicians the opportunity to use our facilities on a Saturday afternoon. Whether you want to learn how to play an instrument or just spend some time in our Auditorium rehearsing then this is a MUST NOT MISS OPPORTUNITY.
Some equipment will be provided but if you have your own instruments we advise you bring them. AND you can learn how to develop your sound and even how to promote your band. The sessions are led by Citadel sound staff who are also musicians. You will also get the opportunity to perform at The Citadel.
The guitar classes are the first step if you want to be in a Rock Band. You can come along with little or even no knowledge of how to play and just give it a go.
Guitar workshops take place on Saturday afternoons from 1pm – 2pm.
Rock Band workshops take place on Saturday afternoons from 2pm – 3pm.
Led by Sophie Tickle (a performed in the Olympic closing ceremony) this workshop will develop your skills in street dancing working towards regular performances both at the Citadel and within the community.

If that’s not enough, why not come along to our social event, M:ZONE which is an under 18’s night were you can dance the night away to live music or chill out in the gaming room for only £2.50.
