While we have no doubt that The Beatles and Oasis probably had to practice in a few dingy rooms before making it into a shining recording studio, that isn’t to say we can’t offer young people the chance to develop their talents in a professional environment from an early age. We’re talking of course about a custom-made space where musicians and singers can perform to their heart’s content, and then professionally modify their sounds to create something spectacular. Just imagine the reactions!

A recording studio may not be a small addition to your creative budget, but it is a fantastic resource that can equip students of all ages with both artistic and technical skills. Whether it’s a state of the art installation to enrich the drama and music curriculum at a secondary school, or a necessary resource for university students on music technology courses, a recording studio can really ignite a passion for learning and self-development in pupils.

As well as being a resource students can’t fail to appreciate, a recording studio can be a huge selling point for schools and universities when prospective applicants expect the very best facilities on hand. Recording studios also have the potential to offer a new stream of revenue when not being used for educational purposes.

Popular TV shows such as ‘The X Factor’ and ‘The Voice’ have understandably stirred up the performer in all of us and recording studio ‘experience days’ have become increasingly popular amongst budding singers. Professional musicians additionally require local studios for high quality recordings.

So, what factors would a profession installation company such as PG Stage take into account when designing and implementing a studio? The great thing about a recording studio is that it can utilise unused space, i.e. basements, and be as elaborate or simple as you desire. Will your needs require you to record a whole orchestra or just allow single artists and groups to perform? A recording studio can be tailored to your needs and budget.

Subdividing and sound proofing your space are obviously key considerations and a professional recording studio usually consists of a performance space, control room (for mixing and editing) and potentially isolation booths (for use when loud instruments need to be segregated from the recording studio to isolate their sounds). These spaces need to be encased in a soundproofed domain for sound quality, but you may already find the existing construction of your space facilitates soundproofing to some extent.

Once your initial structure is devised, the next step is to focus on your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) which is basically the electronic equipment needed to run a studio. These construction and technical installations are the basic factors to address, and although creating a recording studio can seem intimidating, with the right team to expertly implement all technical components, you can be confident you’re getting the best equipment for your requirements and budget.
