SQA Registered Centre
Glasgow Music Studios is proud to announce that they are a certified SQA registered centre. We will be running courses and workshops for all ages and abilities so watch the space. We are starting our first SQA Project- The Music Worx on Tuesday April 5th. With thanks to Skills Development Scotland we are running an employability focused project for young people in Glasgow. Our project will allow young people with additional support needs to get into employment within the Creative Industries. for more info contact Lynne Howard – firstname.lastname@example.org
At Glasgow Music Studios, we pride ourselves on providing inclusive music projects for all. We run projects for people of all ages and abilities and help them to form their own bands. They also get help to write their own music, record in the studio and take part in live performances. Our team of experienced tutors and sound engineers guide participants through music, from the basics to the final performance.
“The Jam Project allowed young carers to experience music tuition in a creative recording studio environment and to develop their own creative talents. The Jam Project promoted positive team work within the bands and encouraged the young people to share ideas and opinions with adults and other young people – with the knowledge that their ideas would be respected and valued. The Jam Project has provided positive experiences that may shape their future and memories that will last a lifetime.”

“The staff are very supportive and offer a meaningful learning experience within the music industry. Additionally the location of the venue is critical to the success of removing territorial barriers. Subsequently, we have been able to refer many young people who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to access such a learning opportunity”
Maxine Morrision – 16 Plus Learning Choices – Glasgow City Council
“We went to Glasgow Music Studios to record a samba piece last November. We were able to meet with Lynne beforehand to talk about exactly what we wanted to do and what we would require on the day. The pupils and staff were made to feel very welcome and we all had a fantastic experience recording the music. The pupils were able to go into the booth to see how the recording equipment worked and the sound technician took time to explain what he was doing and worked with us until we got the sound we wanted! Glasgow Music Studios go out their way to make the recording experience a wholly educational one.”
