A modern, purpose-built, acoustically treated recording studio that’s perfect for your next rehearsal, recording or live performance.

The studio comes equipped with a Kawai Shigeru Concert Series grand piano and has a flat timber floor space of 46 square metres and a ceiling height of 3.9 metres.

The acoustic treatment provides an environment well suited to small ensembles and vocalists. Full-length heavy drapes on three sides can be closed to reduce reverberation and create a very intimate environment.

Rehearsals

An intimate and quiet space for performance rehearsal, exam practice and private music lessons.

Recording sessions

Well suited to recording small music groups, vocalists, podcasts, voiceovers and audition videos.

Live performances

The studio can accommodate a small audience (subject to ensemble size).

Dry Hire

Suitable for private functions, film and photography shoots and workshops.
