DIY & HOME RECORDING 

Spring / Summer 2021 Workshops

It feels like a long, lonely time since the first lockdown in March 2020.
Hardly any gigs, not even able to see pals at the pub for most of it, and so many recording plans put on hold.
It's been rubbish.
But there's been a home recording boom during that time, and - punks that we are at heart - we're happy to see so many people getting into the DIY ethos of music making. It's how we started too.
So this Spring & Summer we want to see as many of you as possible to make up for lost time, and we want to help you get better at home recording too, or help you get started if you're still hesitating.
When the restrictions ease, as we hope they will soon, we're gonna start running workshops again.
We'll have different ones to cover ...
  • Drum recording
  • Guitar recording
  • Vocal recording
  • Making the most of minimal equipment
 
... and if there's anything else you want us to cover, let us know.
 
Attendance will be on a pay-what-you-can basis, but space will be limited so we'll be taking advance bookings.
All contributions contributions will be donated to Help Musicians UK.

One-to-one mentoring

Whilst lockdown has led to a boom in DIY home recording, a lot of people are finding out that there can be a steep learning curve to climb before you get good at it.
Although there's tonnes of information out there, sometimes it's hard to find exactly what you're looking for, and it's often hard to know whether that information is actually good and helpful advice or not.
We've been through the same learning process as you're going through - more than 20 years of making records as artists and producers, and we think we've got a lot of useful knowledge and advice to share.
There's no syllabus or set programme of lessons. We don't want to run courses that try to cover everything like you'd get at music college - if that's what you want there's already a lot of choices for you out there. 
Instead we want to support the learning-by-doing D.I.Y. attitude towards recording, focussing on whatever it is you want to know more about, with a practical approach. Because while theory is important, we want to help get you recording as quickly as possible - after all, that's the fun bit!
Get in touch to discuss your particular needs and we'll work things out from there.
