ReBels Music

ReBels Music is here to celebrate all lines of work in the music industry and give young people the opportunity to explore and create.

ReBels Music is part of our wider talent development work supporting the underground voices and subcultures in Plymouth -  giving them platforms to be heard. ReBels Music is funded by Youth Music will support the growth of musical talent in the city. Not only those who want to perform, but those who want to record, produce, market and design tours that promote their work.
Barbican Theatre believes you ‘can't be what you can't see’, and this programme aims to break down barriers to expose young people to all the vital roles that make up the music industry, and work with industry leading professionals.  We want to break the isolation, and give young artists routes to finding their own creative voices - whether as lyricists, composers, producers, mixers, engineers or musicians.

Why We Exist...

We believe that young people's creativity has no limits or restrictions

How we do the Why...

You can't be what you can't see.

A young person should encounter endless different creative outlets and opportunities to help find the best way to express themselves. Without financial, social or cultural barriers.

What ReBels do...

We provide project focussed training groups that allow young people to experience and develop with mutiple artforms and styles, while focussing on one production or performance. We listen to our young people to find out what they want - if we don't already cover subjects or artforms they want that's how we find out and develop with and for them.
