Studio A features the largest recording space in the area with a 1,100 sq/ft live room, plus five isolation booths.  While being the professional musician’s obvious choice for perfect acoustical-space recording, Studio A is also the go-to place for recording any style of music whether it be rock, jazz, classical or folk.  Students learn how to use the superior acoustics of these rooms in tandem with our large collection of studio-standard mics to get the perfect acoustic and tonal results they need for their projects.
