MVM will have trained staff on hand to supervise and facilitate the Open Studio program. Each participant will be checked in and out of the building and our "rule of three" policy will be observed at all times, meaning there are always three My Voice Music participants or staff in any room at any time.
During this pilot program there is no cost. That's right, it's FREE.
MVM Studios is a playground for musicians of all skill levels! We have four rooms dedicated to music production and rehearsal, electric and acoustic guitars and basses, drum sets, keyboards, and other various instruments. Participants can guide their own musical exploration or engage with staff to further their skills in songwriting, instrument playing, recording, and more.
