A specialist music project based in Newcastle, running since 2006, providing one to one and group music sessions for a wide spectrum of people with learning and physical disabilities, enabling them to create, rehearse, perform and record their own music.

There’s no such thing as a typical music session at the Pool of Sound. During their sessions our clients have, recorded their own original music onto CD, made their own ambient soundscapes using Soundbeam*, recorded cover versions, mixed and produced their own dance music and made original audio/visual pieces for public performance. All music genres are catered for from Rock n Roll to Reggae, from Pop to Punk or Country to Classical we’re up for anything.

During their group sessions our clients can sing, dance and play along to a range of songs they have selected with a project musician or use soundbeam and instruments to create original music that can be put onto CD to take home.

The Drop in Band is a live music session for people with learning disabilities. It’s on every Wednesday and Friday between 1.45pm and 3.15pm at Byker Community Centre.
