All our courses are run in a professional recording studio allowing young people to  learn  in  a  working environment,  being  taught  by  experienced  industry professionals still involved in the industry on a day-to-day basis. Rubber Soul Studios is a new facility based in the site of the old Moolah Rouge studios in Stockport’s Hallam Mill.

The Future looks bright for Rubber Soul Studios as we are constantly upgrading the  equipment  to  attract  famous  bands.

This will help to capture young people’s imagination whilst still allowing them to learn in a professional environment.
