We Make Music



Spotlight On… The Soundlab

Active since 2003, The Sound Lab is a grassroots, largely volunteer-run charity providing creative opportunities to communities across Glasgow and beyond. The Sound Lab believe that opportunities to make music and be creative should not only be available for those who can readily access and afford it: music making should be available to everyone. Their vision is that, irrespective of age, gender, race, ethnicity or economic background, everyone should be able to access the resources and support they need to fulfil their creative potential.
The Sound Lab are a proudly small organisation; made up of a dedicated team including their expert tutors who, together, bring free music and creativity to hundreds of people every year.
