Recording and Rehearsal Studios in Derby

Derby has a great selection of studios to support its ever growing live music scene.

Here at Singing Lessons Derby we really encourage our singing students to form bands and start gigging. It is a great experience and something that all young musicians should aim to do at some stage, yet it is no easy task.

Finding members, somewhere to practise and write songs - let alone record them - is tough at the best of times so we thought we would help you along by compiling a list of the best places to rehearse or record your first EP if you are a local band. So in no order...
