Experiences Happen


[Tuesday, 2nd April - 7PM]


It’s not every day you get to see a behind-the-scenes look at a band recording live in a world-class commercial recording studio.

If you are interested in a career in music production, then you won’t want to miss our open house.

Over the evening, you’ll get a fly-on-the-wall look at this amazing process, including a set-up tour in Studio A, a live recorded performance with local artist Aly Rowell, and an insight into the mixing process.

If you want to dive deeper, we’ll have staff on hand to answer questions on the process, and the courses we run at Studio West and The Recording Arts Center.

There are a maximum of 30 places for this free event. Please complete an RSVP for each member of your party.


We’ll have Studio A primed to go for the recording session, which means we’ll be ready to start our session! We’ll give you a run-down of the room, and the equipment we have chosen for this session.

After the recording, we may add some overdubs, extra musical takes, or additional vocal tracks. We’ll then do a quick dive into the world of mixing, and transform our recording!

The evening will be presented by Studio West Owner, and Director of The Recording Arts Center – Peter Dyson. The session will be Engineered by a Senior StudioWest Instructor.

Artistic talent is provided by local writer/performer Aly Rowell and her band.
