Why should you come to David’s Music House Recording Studio?
As a musician for over 40 years in the Pittsburgh area, I have lived through the changes that technology has brought to music. It has been 5 decades since The Beatles made teenagers realize that they can start a band and possibly become famous playing music. During those early years, if a band wrote their own music, they had to save up a LOT of money and go to an expensive recording studio to make a professional demo recording. A lot of musicians traveled to either the East or West Coast and lived as a starving artist in hopes of getting some big record company to at least listen to them, let alone wanting to record them. Most likely, they would end up being taken for a ride and losing all their money and dreams. The other option was to send demos to record labels A&R departments, only to have them tossed in the garbage as unsolicited material.
Everything has changed today, where a kid can act silly in his room, record it, upload it to YouTube and end up appearing on the Tonight Show that same week. Technology has totally changed how the entertainment industry works and how an independent songwriter, without management, can become the next pop star. We see it every week on the news, when a talented performer becomes the next winner of America’s Got Talent or American Idol. These are chances that didn’t exist ten years ago.
Although, the Internet and social networking has presented a much wider scope of how someone can become successful, it has also increased the amount of people who want to become famous, exponentially! Any serious musician who wants to become successful, still needs to work hard at it, practice, practice, practice….perform, perform, perform….as much as your can and as often as you can.
A major part of this is recording your material and not just selling it, but using it to promote yourself, through social media and even giving away your CD’s at your performances and wherever you are.
David’s Music House wants to bring an affordable learning experience to anyone wanting to become an independent recording artist. Today’s technology does give the ability to easily record in your home, which can work to a degree for someone who’s YouTube video just happens to be seen by the right people. But in most cases a musician needs to record their music in a professional studio. David’s Music House offers a middle ground to this for everyone. We have a state of the art sound room, recording equipment, and microphones that are considerably better than your typical home system. Most importantly, we offer more affordable solutions than the larger Pittsburgh studios. Our rates are reachable for most and because we are local to the South Hills, you can do your project in steps, by recording in a series of visits based on affordability.
We also offer a non-intimidating atmosphere, where you can relax, not worry about the clock ticking while you are setting up and tearing down, etc. We want to help you realize your dream, learn the process of recording and be part of the project. This is your music and your creativity. While we offer our expertise of recording, production and mastering, we will not push you out of the way; we bring your creativity to the front of the project. We are here to make your music sound as good as it can, but you are the creator and director of what you want your music to sound like. We will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable about this aspect.
In addition to making the recording process affordable, we run many different specials and discounts every month. Keep looking for the deal of the month on our website.
