Studio Pricing and Policies


Studio time is $30 per hour.

The first hour of a studio session will always be billed as a full hour. Past the first hour, time will be billed at $15 per half-hour.

The clock starts at the start of our pre-arranged session time or when you arrive (whichever comes first). Please check with me before arriving early, since I may still be in a session with another artist.

Recording fees are due at the end of your recording session. Please plan accordingly.

Scheduling long sessions, multiple sessions, or on holidays may require a non-refundable deposit before booking.

Discounts are available for longer sessions and cash payments. See bottom section for more info.

Mixing & Mastering

You may pay hourly for mixing and mastering (same price as recording) or pay a flat rate per song for it to be mixed and mastered during off-hours. Flat-rate pricing is determined by complexity of the song arrangement, song length, quality of the recordings and instrumental, and how quickly you need the work done.

Usually you can expect to pay $35-60 for songs recorded with me, and $50-75 for songs recorded elsewhere.

Please note that this is a highly-discounted rate, as most songs take multiple hours (often spread over a couple days) to mix properly.

All mixing includes mastering at no extra charge.

The price for mastering songs mixed at another studio is $15 per song.

Written approval of the demo and payment is required before I begin mixing.

Cancellations/Late Arrivals/Early Departures

In order to make the most of available recording times (for you and everyone else), please book the appropriate amount of time you will need for a session and use all of it.


The minimum fee for a studio session is $30. If you come in for a 20-minute session, you will still be charged for a full hour. Once you go past the first hour, you are charged $15 per half-hour.

You have until 12 hours before your session to reschedule or cancel. Rescheduling or cancelling a session that is under 4 hours long, with less than 12 hours notice, will result in a $30 cancellation fee.


Rescheduling or cancelling a session that is 4 hours or longer, with less than 12 hours notice, will result in a minimum charge/cancellation fee equal to half of the scheduled time. For example, if you cancel a 6-hour session you will be charged $90 for 3 hours. Or, if you schedule a 4-hour session but you finish in 1 hour, you will be charged $60 for 2 hours.

Health & Safety

If you are sick, please cancel your session as soon as possible. If you arrive to the studio sick, you will be asked to leave and charged a cancellation fee. This applies to COVID and non-COVID illnesses. Even a common cold will hinder your ability to perform and can delay recording sessions for 1-2 weeks if I catch it.  

I try to be somewhat lenient with cancellation fees if you give reasonable notice of circumstances beyond your control.

Masks are optional, but always appreciated.

A maximum of 6 people (plus myself) are allowed inside the studio at one time. You are responsible for the actions of any guests you bring to the studio. If your guests are not able to keep quiet during recording, they will be asked to leave. While I want everyone to have a good time, this is ultimately a space for serious music making, not partying.

Smoking and vaping is not allowed inside or within 8 feet of the entrance. There are usually areas outside where you can smoke, provided that you are respectful of the space and the neighbors.
