Why Choose Our Recording Lessons?

We Record Drums, Guitars, Bass, Vocals, and More

Our recording studio is set to record you on your instrument. You will get to keep the finished tracks you record. If you don’t play an instrument and want to learn engineering, Stuart will play as your session musician.

We Use Industry Standards

We use high-quality equipment in an optimal setup. We’ll teach you how to do the same using 24 bit / 96KHz audio fidelity. We will teach you industry-standard workflows and methods. We use excellent speakers for monitoring.

Our Setup Is Simple

Our equipment is high in quality, but not extensive. We use microphones, an audio interface, a computer, digital signal processors, and speakers. You can replicate our setup at home, and we can help you build an even more affordable setup.
