How to make your most of the time in the studio

May 10, 2022

Words by: Nathan Reece

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.

Ready to get going? Head to our online booking system to check availability and book your next rehearsal today.

Persevere, it’ll be worth it.
