Recording Parties/ Recording Experience (adults)
Do you know anyone who dreams of recording in a professional studio and taking away a CD of them singing one their favourite songs? That probably includes most of us! But, if anyone would really like to try recording, we can do it here in the comfort of MusicStation. Recording studios can be quite intimidating to even professional musicians, so we hope by recording here in familiar surroundings for our students, it will help to calm nerves and get a better performance.
Here is a video we made of Kiah Spurle singing ‘Rolling in the Deep’ in our studio.
We can also record anyone playing any instrument of their choice – we have recently recorded a spoken word session on the history of Jane Austen in Tonbridge. Apparently Jane Austen has actually set foot in 3 Bank Street (MusicStation) when she came to Tonbridge! You can hear about it if you have an audio tour of Tonbridge Castle.
Our prices are all inclusive of mixing, mastering and producing a CD (or emailable file) within the time booked.
MusicStation has a nicely equipped recording studio using Logic X Pro and Reason.
