Do you have dreams of your musically inclined clan being the next Partridge Family, Jackson 5 — or even Rebecca Black? Whether you’re making a home movie and need to score it, or want to record a CD with the kids for Mother’s Day, there is now a recording studio open to you for whatever project you’re working on.
The Bronx House School for Performing Arts’s recording studio features state-of-the-art equipment and a highly professional staff you won’t get elsewhere.
The studio offers professional sound and music production services, including 24-track digital production, music arranging, scoring, midi sequencing, audio for film and video, and voice-over production.
The facility is equipped to handle almost any project: from a personal single to voice-overs and jingles, and even sound effects and TV scores.
If you don’t have any experience mixing, don’t worry. The studio will take care of everything, and will even get your tracks onto a CD or ready for digital distribution.
During a session, you can even have musicians from the Bronx House’s professional music faculty — who have performance and composition expertise in strings, brass, percussion and vocals — accompany you. So whether you need one specialized performer to fill out your own band, or an entire group to perform and record music for commercial use, the studio has you covered. Sessions can be tailored according to your needs and budget.
Music school instructor Jorge Tovar, who has worked as a music programmer, arranger, composer, and engineer at studios for more than 10 years, is the facility’s supervisor.
Bronx House for the Performing Arts also offers year-round dance and music classes — including piano, guitar, voice, violin, drums, and more — for all ages.
The school offers scholarships to students who qualify for financial assistance, and has instruments available for loan, free of charge. Programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, and UJA Federation. The school is a member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education.
