Are You Ready To Book A Studio?

Is your budding musician ready to move to the next level? Have they been asking for a way to record their music?

While some will be content to record their music from home, others will want to experiment with recording in ways beyond home spatial and technical means.

While every piano player envisions themselves being the next Bach or Beethoven, there are many steps between playing the piano for fun and creating a recording that can be shared with the public.Are You Ready To Book A Studio?

Am I ready?
The most important question to ask in the process is: Is my music ready? Do you have the ability to complete the songs in a high quality way? A music engineer can’t fix being out of tune or not having perfected arrangements. They can’t help you finish writing a song. Their jobs are to help edit and process it into a final arrangement.

What are you trying to achieve?
The first thing an engineer is going to ask you is what your objectives for the studio are. If you are paying money to create something, you should know your ultimate goal. Do you want a single or an entire album? This can also help you select the right studio for your goals. Have they worked with other artists like yourself? Can they provide resources to help you accomplish your goals? The more you know going in, the better fit the studio will be.

Do you have the resources?
Studio space is expensive. If you don’t have realistic expectations, you might blow your budget long before you get your final results. A good studio will help you create a realistic budget and help you move along on schedule. Be sure you understand the process and how you’ll proceed if things go off track.

Do you have the right equipment?
Is your piano in tune and recently serviced? There’s no excuse to enter a recording session without having instruments playable and at your expectations.

Before you head into the studio, you might choose to play with your own recording devices. A quality digital piano can help you play better and record your music to digital output, which can be edited using online resources. It’ll give you a better idea of what you want to create once you book studio time and head in for your first recording.
