Room 1? Pole Room? Live Room? Everyone has their favourites here at Factory Studios, and we thought we’d offer a few pointers on making the most of your time at the studio.
1. Be Prepared
You would prepare for an interview or a test, so why not a rehearsal? Unless you’re writing new material together band members should have practised their parts in advance. If you have everything you need at the beginning of your rehearsal it will make achieving your end goal easier.
2. Set Goals
Establishing your goals as a band ahead of time is a good way to keep things on track. Messing around and jamming is a great way to warm up but it won’t help you reach your end goal.
3. Respect your bandmates
Be respectful and understanding of the amount of time and energy your bandmates are putting into the rehearsal and make sure you’re pulling your weight.
4. Keep going until it’s right
It can be really frustrating when you’re working really hard and don’t feel like you’ve got a lot to show for it or it’s not what you envisioned. Persevere, it’ll be worth it.
5. Record and Review
By taking a live recording on your phone you can review many things, how you sound, your stage presence and it’s a great way to evaluate your progress and see what needs to be improved.
