FAQ’s

Can we record in the rehearsal studio?

The short answer is yes. Many people use their REHEARSAL studio to record. Depending on your neighbors playing schedule and time of day it is always a possibility to record. My thoughts are: if you come to the facility 50 times to record and have success 40 times I would consider this a success. If you come to the facility 50 times to record and you are successful 10 then you have two choices. 1) move rooms to neighbors that will give you more success 2) you can vacate. It’s a month to month lease. It is easiest to record during the day during the week. Long Island City: Take the 7 train to the 33rd street Rawson.
