Musica Viva's Janette Hamilton Studio is an acoustically isolated rehearsal, recording and workshop studio located within Musica Viva Australia.
It is a 60 sq.m. "box within a box", and the studio space features a wooden floor, high ceilings and no windows, as well as acoustic panelling on the walls and hung from the ceiling. The space is fully airconditioned and has flexible studio lighting. Acoustic curtains on tracks run along three sides of the studio and can be moved as required.
Hire of the studio includes use of the Steinway grand piano, chairs, and large kitchen facilities. Recording equipment is available for approved users. It is also possible to bring your own equipment. A floor plan is available. Rates of hire (by the hour, half day, or day) vary according to a sliding scale.
Recording possibilities can be detailed on application (Dante Audio over IP standard). Musica Viva's building sits within a residential area. Hours are therefore limited to weekdays 8am to 8pm, with weekends by special arrangement.
Hire of the studio includes use of the grand piano, audience chairs, orchestral chairs (subject to MVA concert use) and kitchen facilities.
Please note that due to our Occupational Certificate in this residential area, the Janette Hamilton Studio cannot be used as a performance space to which tickets can be sold.
