Recording and Rehearsal Studios

Recording and Rehearsal Studios

Many of our students at Guitar Lessons York decide to record their guitar playing, and our tutors find it a great way to compliment your lessons as you progress with your guitar playing. There is nothing better as a guitarist to hear yourself playing and realise how far you have come since the days of barely being able to play a chord on guitar! With so many recording studios in York, it can be difficult choosing the right one for you – one which gets the best from your guitar playing whilst giving you an enjoyable experience. Our tutors here at Guitar Lessons York have experience with many of the recording studios in York so have put together a short guide to the best ones in the city.

The Jam Factory Studios has a unique setting, what with being based in an old Victorian factory, so you can guarantee that the environment will offer great inspiration for your guitar playing. However this environment doesn’t impact on the quality of sound, for the studio offers state of the art technology able to cater both to solo artists and full bands. So no matter whether you are looking to record your guitar playing alone, or are a guitarist in a band, The Jam Factory Studios will be perfect for you. And at £20 per hour, it proves that high quality recording doesn’t need to come with a high price tag. Even for those not ready to record, The Jam Factory Studios has four soundproofed rehearsal rooms which are perfect to practice your guitar playing outside of your lessons with us here at Guitar Lessons York. The studio is conveniently located on Eldon Street, YO31 7NH.

The White Rooms offers a fantastic recording experience, with soundproofed and fully treated rooms to ensure that you get the best sound from your guitar playing.

The studio truly caters to the individual, so no matter what your guitar playing style, the White Rooms will be able to capture your sound. They also offer five rehearsal rooms, which each come with a PA system, so all you need to do is arrive with your guitar and be prepared to play. The rehearsal rooms are also soundproofed and acoustically treated, making it a great place for beginner and experienced guitarists alike to practice outside of their guitar lessons. The studio is based in Bentley Park, just five minutes from York University.

However, the studio can also record you at a location of your choice, so for those who may be daunted by entering a studio, you can record in the comfort of your own home and just focus on getting your guitar playing perfect.

Melrose Yard Studios is located in the heart of the city of York, YO1 9XF, so is a great choice purely for the convenience of its location. However, the studio also has a lot to offer, with both a recording studio and rehearsal rooms available. In terms of recording, the studio uses state of the art technology to ensure they will be able to capture your guitar playing at its purest. And at £25 per hour including a sound engineer, the studio is reasonably priced. They also offer audio editing and mixing at reasonable prices to ensure that you get a perfect product at the end.

Equipment such as amps can also be hired for a small fee. And if you’re a student, the studio offers some great deals so there is no excuse not to get in the recording studio!

Here is what I can offer:

A musical and holistic way of learning: not just boring scales and theory for their own sake, but actual songs that you like and want to play, as well as how they fit in with the overarching web of practical theory, specifically as it relates to guitar technique. We will learn how music works through the songs and genres that you love.

A structured method to progress in both guitar playing and musical knowledge. All foundational and advanced elements of musical theory and practice covered – scales, arpeggios, picking techniques, improvisation, genre exploration, composition, reading musical notation, tablature and chord symbols etc.
