The MusicStation Green Room is the main downstairs live room, and has state of the art soundproofing with double doors and thick acoustic glass. Reflective walls are covered in sound absorbing ‘Buzzi Felt’ to soak up unwanted reverberations. The room is fully air-conditioned for maximum comfort. This room is used for guitar group teaching using the Boss JS10 unit, vocal group teaching, Trinity graded music exams and band workshops.
The room has the latest Apple iMac and a 50-inch plasma screen to show presentations and videos. We use Roland guitar and bass amps, with two Fender Stratocaster guitars, a half size electric guitar, an acoustic guitar and an electric bass. We have recently purchased a beautiful Yamaha U3 acoustic piano for exams and recording sessions along with a Roland digital piano. The Green Room also has a high quality drum kit for recording , workshops and exams. There is also a music white board.
See below for pictures of our most recent Recording Party. As you can see, a lot of fun was had by all! Prices start from £60 per session.
The MusicStation Orange Room is our dedicated drum teaching suite.
We use the Roland TD11-KV VDrums for all of the lessons.
This is a very impressive piece of kit. The toms all have mesh heads to improve the playing experience and to cut down the ambient noise in the room. Each kit has 25 pre-programmed drum kits that cover pretty much any drum sound you could want to hear. There are also 25 user kits that enable you to design your own kits. The sound through our state of the art Roland headphones is nothing short of astonishing! Come and have a listen to see what we mean. All the kits are connected to a Jamhub. This is a new invention that enables whole band to play silently, but hear each other through headphones with total clarity. The lecturer will be able to monitor the students playing at all times. The kits also feature a wireless mode that can transmit the student’s performance direct to an iPhone or iPad. There is a worldwide community of drummers uploading their performances to a Roland website.
All the rooms use heavy-duty Tiger music stands that will hold music, folders, or even iPads.

The reception room downstairs has plenty of room and includes a large TV monitor showing the CCTV cameras in each room, so you can watch your child’s lesson, make sure you ask for a free tea or coffee. It doubles as a recording studio control room when lessons are finished for the day. The recording studio runs on Logic X and Reason recording software. The audio signals are converted by the new Roland Studio Capture device. The monitor speakers are the top of the range Adams Ax7s. The recording microphones are a mixture of Shure and EV.
