Rehearsal Studios

boom mic stand There are many places used by musicians and bands for rehearsing, including halls, community centers and even Dad's garage but if you don't want to get yelled at to 'Turn it Down' then a dedicated rehearsal room is the way to go.

A rehearsal studio ranges from one bare room where you are expected to use your own P.A. equipment to the dedicated studio with several soundproofed rooms that are fully equipped with a full P.A., monitors, backline, drum kit, recording facilities, stage, mirrors and relaxation area.

The average rehearsal studio will have one or more rooms containing a P.A. which are hired out in 3/4 hour blocks with backline and kit available for hire if required. Prices vary according to location, facilities provided and there are usually day, evening and weekend rates, but expect to pay approximately £4 - £10 per hour for the room and extra for backline and kit.

Rehearsal rooms with recording facilities are handy for those wanting to review their progress, although tapes cost extra and the quality of the recording is not particularly good, it does provide a basic idea of what songs need improving.

Some studios are combined rehearsal and recording studios with rooms capable of both functions.

Check out all studios in the area, most advertise in Yellow Pages, Loot, music press, local music shops and are listed in the phone book.  Try rehearsing in each studio within your budget and talk to other musicians for their recommendations.

Try and avoid rooms where the p.a. emits a constant 'hum' or 'buzz', whilst this may only be a temporary problem which can be resolved by the staff, a recurring problem is likely to be bad wiring, check your equipment as well as the P.A. settings, instrument leads and mic leads are correctly connected before complaining!!

A small selection of contact details for rehearsal studios and practice rooms suitable for for musicians, bands, singers, songwriters and entertainers are provided here for convenience. Free inclusion on this list is available by sending details to the Webmaster. **Recommended (only applicable to studios we have personally used!!)
