Rock It! is a community organisation representing teenagers from Greater Manchester aged between 11 and 21 with a passion for music and the arts. We are open to young people of any ability interested in new music.
Rock It! specialises in the creation of original new music, developing young musicians and composers, and delivering Arts Awards accreditations through music industry training and a comprehensive volunteer programme.
The group provides positive activities and produces trainee music leaders and peer mentors with the skills, knowledge and confidence to move forward, whether going for employment, training or educational opportunities.

Rock It! is proud to be supported by:
Redbridge Rehearsal Studios
Redbridge Rehearsal Studios contribute to our work by providing session rehearsal rooms at running costs only. This generous support in kind means we can keep our fees down and concentrate our funding on providing better chances for the future for the young people of Greater Manchester. Redbridge also help our progressing young bands by providing a professional rehearsal environment once they have left the programme.
BBC Children In Need
BBC Children In Need have provided funding to cover core project costs from 2017-18. Valuing inclusivity and access to opportunity for all, Children In Need support our work on tackling disadvantage in music education and the wider community.
Bolton CVS provide us with a network of volunteer and community project support across Bolton. They are key to ensuring organisations work with each other to benefit more of those in need and help to sustain community activity in the town. This year, we have also been successful in acquiring small grant funding to ensure our programme can keep meeting the needs of young people and their families.
Producer Neil Treppas
Neil Treppas is a highly experienced professional music producer/mixer/engineer and composer who recently produced his first European Number One track “Jena Na” by (X Factor Semi-finalist) Ardit Cuni and Vesa Smolica (The Voice Series 3) which stayed on the top spot for a record-breaking 6 weeks. Even with this success and a packed schedule, Neil supports Rock It! by providing recording sessions at community rates to help his local community.
