Recording and Rehearsal Studios in Portsmouth

Perfect local recording & rehearsal spaces

Going to a recording studio is usually a major decision for a band or solo artist. It can represent a significant investment of time and money from everyone involved, so in our experience, it is worth taking some time to find a studio that is right for you and your band. Is it really worth it? We think so.

You might have tried recording a band practice at some point and been disappointed with the results - so have we, and the crazy thing is that you didn't really sound that bad. Recording music is an art and a skill which requires expensive and specialist equipment, so even if you have a mixing desk and a laptop that's still not going to be enough. Well, here at Singing Lessons Portsmouth we want you to make the right choices, so we have short-listed a few of our favourite recording and rehearsal studios in and around Portsmouth for you to check out:

SDR Audio Production

SDR Audio Production, located at 16B Gladys Avenue, Portsmouth PO2 9BE, aims to provide the complete package for a recording musician - everything from the recording right through to the mastering stages. With first-class equipment, the studio uses a "one room" studio design to capture your band sounds its best. And at the daily rate of £120 p/d it is certainly worth checking out.

The Old Blacksmiths

The Old Blacksmiths is Portsmouth's premier recording and rehearsal venue. With packages to suit every artist, their experienced team will ensure that you walk away sounding your very best.

Portsmouth Studio

Portsmouth Studio is run exclusively by singer and producer Mark Harris. His studio project was born out of necessity, not to make money, which is reflected in his prices. Not just a recording studio, Portsmouth Studio is a full-blown creative centre which can provide many other services which will be useful for bands, such as photography, videography and web design. Mark and his studio can be found at 44 Kennedy Close, Portsmouth.

Mayfield Studios is a new modern studio that offers everything from Recording to Video shoots and they even have their own record label. They already have a great reputation in the area for producing high quality recordings in a wide array of styles. The studio boasts that it is a State-of-the-art, acoustically treated and air-conditioned facilities allow for professional recording, production, mixing and mastering at an affordable price. From the reviews online, this is something I don't think anyone can argue with. If you want high quality affordable recording, then please check out Mayfield. The studio is located on 2A Down End Rd, Drayton, Portsmouth PO6 1HT.

We hope that gives you somewhere to start on your quest for the perfect recording studio, but remember that this will not be the same for everybody. As we said before, recording an album, or even for a singer to record a single can take a lot of money, so take the time you need to find the right place and the right producer for you. There are many other recording studios in the Portsmouth area, so if you do decide to go elsewhere then we would love to hear what you think. Just give us a shout using the details at the top of the page and tell us your story. From all of us here at Singing Lessons Portsmouth - good luck.
