The Singer Silver is a perfect introduction to recording in a professional studio. Whether aged 7 or 97, our singer doesn't need to be the next Adele or Michael Bublé to enjoy this experience tremendously.
Any prior knowledge of recording is not necessary as an exclusive producer for the session will guide the experience holder through the process comprehensively, calming the nerves and getting the best performance possible on the way through.
After performing several takes of the chosen song, sit back and watch as it is professionally edited together to create the perfect recording.
The Singer Silver experience includes a CD that is produced from the master mix we create. We will also take a photograph and set artwork for printing on it too, making it totally unique. This is taken home at the end of the session.
An exclusive Music Web Page will be created where you can stream and download your music as MP3s, as well as downloading the high resolution picture we took for your CD print. Perfect for sharing with friends and family - wherever they are!

We allow up to four spectators to come and watch from the comfort of the Green Room. Please enquire if you want to bring more.
You are welcome to bring a camera to our studios and take some snaps in the live room with our expensive microphones as props! Just ask your recording engineer when the best time is to do so. Don't forget we take a high resolution picture in our photographic studio for printing on the souvenir CD(s) that are taken home.
You are welcome to video your session from our studio control room, or Green Room. A video from inside the live room whilst the recording artist is performing can be purchased on the day, or ordered in advance after adding an experience to the shopping basket.

We supply professional quality backing tracks for your singing experience or party session.
Whether it's a charting topping hit from the past, or a fresh tune currently being played on the Radio 1 playlist, we're sure to have the track. You can find karaoke versions of tracks (include the term 'karaoke') to rehearse with on iTunes, Spotify or YouTube.
Where do I find the lyrics?
A good source for finding your chosen songs lyrics is azlyrics.com.
It's important to come to our studio armed with all the lyrics of your chosen songs printed on sheet paper ( include a copy of the lyrics for each singer participating). They'll be placed on a music stand in front of the singer and cannot be turned so only print on 1 side of the paper.
Can I bring my own karaoke tracks to the studio?
Can we remove the vocals off an original recording?
Removing vocals from the artists original song can sometimes be done but the process badly effects the music and the quality ends up being sub-standard. We do not use or recommend this process in our recording experiences nor does it comply with copyright laws and other regulations set by MCPS.

Singers should always bring printed lyrics for their chosen songs, even if they can remember them off the top of their head - it may be that we start recording at certain points throughout the song and not just from the beginning making a hard copy invaluable. Find lyrics with our 'backing tracks' search tab above. If you've decided to record a duet then two copies of the lyric sheets will be required as we normally use one mic per singer - and on different sides of the live room!
Marking your lyrics
It's a good idea to mark your lyrics against the original singer and track. Mark notes such as how many beats before the singing starts, and where abouts is the instrumental sections are when you should not be singing. If you have quite lengthy lyrics then you could also mark points where the original singer breathes between words and lines.
Backing tracks do not have any lead vocals to guide you through the song. Make sure that you are well rehearsed so as not to waste your allotted time on practicing or too many re-takes. YouTube is a great source of karaoke tracks to practice too. Also take a look at our Backing track page for more song information. Take a listen to the 'Vocal tips and exercises' tracks in the tab below.
