The Recording Studios at The Songwriting School of Los Angeles were originally built out by Kerry Gordy, record and tv producer and son of the legendary Berry Gordy, Father of Motown, and are home to both outside projects (ASCAP, the tv show Glee, etc.) as well as student projects. Voice-over to full band record, single to EP, YouTube videos to simple demos, the staff are expert at both delivering professional results and, when needed, provided an education along the way for less experienced artists and songwriters.
The Sound Boutique Studios, as they are called, are home to both student and outside projects. Our Music Production for Songwriters classes take place here in the studio. We have been honored to have the TV Show Glee record our piano, Multiple-Grammy Winner Malik Yusef cut vocals, Grammy-nominated Da Internz produce a track with inner city LA kids for ASCAP/America Scores Songwriter Residency. We have hosted current and former major label talent, YouTube stars, and artists who may be stars of the future.

Studio A features a full assortment of analog and digital gear, amps, and instruments. In the Andersen Atelier Annex (The “Triple-A” Room) stands a magnificent Yamaha grand piano lovingly maintained by master artisans David Andersen Pianos. With floated floors and an elegant buildout, the studio makes for a creative, inviting home for singer/songwriter projects, song demos, EPs, full-length recordings, as well as voice-over, overdubs, editing, live videos, and more.
