Music Rehearsal Studios Hire Guide

Are you looking for a rehearsal space for your project, but the amount of options seems overwhelming? Worry not! London is full of fabulous music rehearsal studios and we’re here to help you find the one tailored to your needs, as well as your budget. 

If you want to start your search for your next rehearsal space, here’s what you need to know. First, do a headcount of all your band members, producers, sound engineers and everyone else involved in your session. This will help you determine the amount of space required. Make sure to confirm scheduling with everyone and check with the venue manager if the studio is available for your timeframe. You’ll need to consider the budget for your rehearsal studio, and the amount of time you wish to spend practicing with your crew or band. Also, double check if your rehearsal space has all the music equipment, studio monitors, cables and instruments you’re going to need. Many of these spaces will be able to supply you with the studio gear you need either with the cost of your hire, or for an additional fee.

Top 5 best types of venues for music rehearsal

The ultimate rehearsal studio can mean something very different to various people. When searching for the best option for you, you may want to consider which of these types of spaces will be best  for your next demo, concert, or tour rehearsal:

  • Music studios - With top-notch music gear and soundproof booths, conventional music studios will make a great option for rehearsing as a solo artist or small band, depending on the size of the venue.
  • Multi-purpose spaces - blank canvas spaces in all shapes and sizes are located in all parts of London - with our smart search filters, you’ll be able to find the one that’s perfect for your project.
  • Recording studios - London is famous for some of the greatest recording studios in the world, thanks to the legendary venues such as Abbey Road Studios. Spacious rooms with soundproofing will make your sound extra clean, so that you can have full control over your voice or instrument. Good recording studios are always in demand in the city, so you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice. However, if you find a favourite, make sure to book it early before you lose it!
  • Stages and theatres for hire - There’s nothing quite like practicing for a concert on a real stage. If you want to get more used to the feeling of performing on stage, this may be a very smart option for your band.
  • Clubs and small venues - similar to theatres, rehearsing in a real club, bar, or restaurant will help you improve your performance skills and stage presence. If you want to test what it feels like to perform in a real setting without the pressure of preparing for a real gig, many small commercial venues will gladly share their space with you during off-peak hours.

In order for you to get the best bang for your buck, you may need to be a little creative with your choice of rehearsal space. If you’re the leader of your band, you will need to have an understanding of what you currently need from your rehearsal space. It’s good to have a discussion with your co-members about that as well.

How to lead a music rehearsal

Whether you’re just a group of friends creating a cover band, or a promising group looking for your big break, regular rehearsals are key to giving professional performances in front of a crowd. We’ve made you a list of tips and tricks to make your rehearsals as smooth and efficient as possible:

  • Stick to your scheduling. There’s nothing as annoying as band members showing up late for their studio time. While there will be situations where delays are unavoidable, showing up on time for rehearsals is a sign of respect to your fellow band members, and you waste less of your studio hire time that way.
  • Set goals for the session. In order to stay on track with your progress, make a list of tracks or things you want to go through during your practice. Going through your song list, improving your coordination, eliminating mistakes and bad habits - all of these things can be worked on during the rehearsal. It’s important for these goals to be band-specific, as individual band members should work on their own bad habits outside the studio.
  • Practice set-up and stage play. These are the elements that are often overlooked, yet are very important for your overall performance. Studio rehearsals are a good opportunity to check if you’re capable of coming on and off the stage quickly. Same thing goes for stage play - if your band wants to be all about the music, it’s completely fine, but rehearsing different forms of interaction with your fans (while having some fun in the studio) can enhance your confidence on the real stage.
  • Record and analyse. While it’s likely you can spot some of your blunders during play, it’s extremely important you listen through your performances in order to notice things you wouldn’t be able to hear otherwise. Analysing your own mistakes can help you use your studio time better, and make your performances cleaner and more enjoyable.

What should I expect to come with my music rehearsal studio hire?

Depending on the type of space you’ve chosen for your rehearsals, it should have some sort of sound system. If you opt for a conventional music studio, you will have microphones, instruments, mixers, amps and studio monitors at your disposal. If the studio has some sort of soundproofing foam or panels, they will help to reduce echo in the room, making it easier for you to hear what you’re playing.
