The final sessions of this term will be led by music producer and songwriter Holly Rees at Production Room. These music tech sessions will focus on building knowledge and skills on how a recording studio setup works through fun practical tasks creating, recording, editing and mixing music.

If you’ve been writing music in some of the TUTQ sessions so far, you’ll get hands-on experience of recording these songs to create demos with multiple instrument and programmed parts using music software and equipment available in the studio.

Production Room is a professional recording and production space in Newcastle. Owned and run by local music producer and teacher Lisa Murphy, the studio has been home to several projects to support more women to work in music production, as well as the place where many local artists have recorded and mixed music which they have gone on to release.
