Regular Price per month
Member rate per month
Plans are the equivalent of buying regular price credit at the discounted rate. How you use that credit is up to you. You don't need to commit to one studio. You could, for example, use studio B or C for teaching and with your remaining or accrued credit jam or record with your band in studio A. Any time you don't use by the end of the month automatically rolls over into the next. How awesome is that!

You have four hours of teaching guitar/piano every week, so you book Studio C with a weighted keyboard and practice amps on a weekly recurring basis at a time you determine.
This can be achieved by selecting a membership plan that includes enough hours to accommodate your teaching and rehearsal needs. For example, if you taught in studio B or C for 2 hours every week with membership E4... (2 hours x $22) x 4 weeks = $176 for teaching $330 membership credit - $176 = $154 remaining $154 ÷ $40 studio A rate = 3.85 hours Assuming you didn't need any add-ons for your rehearsal time, you would have enough credit remaining to rehearse for over 3.5 hours a month after covering your studio rental costs for teaching. This would allow you to book one rehearsal session as we require a minimum of 3 hours for booking Studio A. Or you can save up your credit over time and apply it towards recording when you're ready.
While you can easily book one-off times à la carte, you'll save more by applying credit from your membership to rehearsal or recording time.

Our recording service is ideal for artists and bands who want quality recordings to then use in their productions back at their studios, which is why mixing services aren't included in our recording packages. We just want to do the best job handling the technical side of things and stay out of the way of your creative process.
