Music Recording and Production



TEENS: With our fully stocked recording studio you can access your musical side by producing and recording your own original music. Whether you want to become a rockstar or just get better at playing the guitar the music studio is the place to refine your sound and become your best.

If you want to learn the basics of our software and state-of-the-art equipment, come to a Studio 101 session. Once you've been signed off by Ryan, you'll be free to access the Studio anytime to work on your projects.

If you’re interested in bringing your own music and editing, mixing, and spicing it up, check out our Open Studio times for your chance to pick at Ryan’s brain and get the one-on-one input and support you need to make your work perfect.
