The rattle IS A CURATED COMMUNITY & HUB THAT offers studios, workspace, and mentorship to pioneers, Tech makers, artists, and mentors - aLL dedicated to TEARING down barriers in music AND breaking every rule ever written
Monthly membership includes free use of state of the art music studios, engineers, producers, maker spaces, co-working spaces, world class mentoring, workshops, dinners, events, one-on-one coaching and much more. We do all we can to helping nurture the next generation of cultural leaders by not letting the pressures of the past dictate their future.
£299 per month (first month £199) - all inclusive. That's it. No strings attached.
We're not a college, traditional music studio, accelerator, or whatever else you may be used to. We're also not a members club - which means we don't charge extra to use a studio, come to an event, or have a coffee. We are a community with a base in East London all about grassroots change. We nurture and develop you as a professional. We coach, develop, and help you create better work. We don't touch copyright or equity, we simply want to be the catalyst for a more creative, independent, and fair music movement. Prices include VAT.
There is no fixed term, no joining fee, and you can cancel your membership at any time. And if you don't like it within your first month, we'll give you a complete refund. No questions asked.
WHAT IS THERE'S MORE THAN ONE OF US?
Full Members are those who make The Rattle their professional home. We typically ask those who are founders of their act or company to be Full Members. They have regular access to our suite of music studios, writing rooms, co-working space as well as hands-on mentorship from in-house experts and visiting star mentors. We support the development of your art, tech, or startup. Including in membership:
- Coaching from both in-house and visiting mentors.
- Everyday access to the Startup Studio.
- Up to 40 hours music studio time per month - if music creation is related to your business.
- Use of hot-desks 7 days a week.
- Workshops, talks, gigs and dinners.
- A location for meetings, showcases, and hosting your own events.
- High speed internet.
- Excellent facilities to create with over £300,000 worth of music studio and tech equipment available to use.
- Personal support - because it's tough being a founder.
Full Membership - £299 including VAT
When there's more than one of you, you can add additional team members to your membership. If you'd like them to share your allocation of studios time, come and go as they please, but they do not use The Rattle as their professional home, they can become a Community Member for £100 including VAT. If that person considers The Rattle their place of work, needs access to the mentorship, more studio time, then they will need to pay for a full membership.
