  1. What is an under 18s session
    Under 18s sessions are designed for younger musicians who wouldn't normally be able to play a full kit or amps in a studio environment. They are not intended to provide lessons, merely a chance to practice what they already know or to jam with friends. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult for the whole session.

    Under 18s sessions are available between 3:30 and 5:30pm on weekdays and Saturday's subject to other commitments. If you would like another time, please feel free to get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate your visit.
  3. How much are under 18's sessions and what does that include?
    These sessions are £5 for 30 minutes or £7.50 per hour. The session includes full use of the studio and the equipment, drum kit, amps and PA. We will shortly be able to offer a bass and an electric guitar, all still included in the price.
