Things to do
The Chatswood Youth Centre provides an information, recreation and referral service for all young people aged 12-18 years, so feel free to come in and check it out. You can lounge around, grab an acoustic guitar, use the pool table, play table tennis, try some rooftop basketball, volleyball or soccer, use the open air table tennis and punching bags, use the Internet, have a turn on the PS3, X-Box 360 and Wii games consoles, get into our kitchen facilities and a heap more… all for free!
The Chatswood Youth Centre has a fully equiped music room that comes complete with instruments and other gear, and can be booked for use by bands and young people (under 24). There’s a PA system, mics, drums, guitar, electric acoustic guitar, bass, keyboard, piano and amps available, but you are also welcome to bring your own instruments. You’ll be shown how to set the system up. To hire the music room is $4 an hour per band.
We also have the equipment to offer budget recording for young bands and musicians. We will teach you how to use the recording software and equipment, so have a chat to us about booking a recording session! For booking information contact the Youth Centre on 9777 7958 during opening hours.
