Our little studio is located on one of Melbourne finest streets, The Grove. Finest because the sun rises at one end and sets at the other and along the street, it has a long row of leafy trees. Our studio has been fully functional since the beginning of 2012.
We have a huge archive of sheet music and music manuals to draw from at a moments notice as well as a Behringer PA system. There's also a tub of fun percussion instruments to annoy the neighbours with!
