Our Facilities

The Building

There’s 3600 Square feet of musician’s nirvana. If there’s a need for making music, we have it covered.

Teaching Studios

Our teaching studios are spacious. We mean big. Really big. These rooms were purpose built to give you room to stretch out and learn without hitting your guitar on the walls.

Pro Gear

We keep nothing but professional gear in our arsenal. No kid’s toys here. You’re practicing to be one of the greats. You should be playing on the same gear as them.

More Than Basics

We don’t just have the basic gear needed to make great music. We have nearly everything any professional production facility would have to produce a recording or show.

Recording Studio

Whether you need recording time to produce a college audition demo, or you need a full-on professional production team to manage a global audio project; we have done it all. Contact us today!

Studio Circle

We have a studio for rent, but the students get it every Monday night for free! Studio Circle is a free club for all students where they make projects come to life each week.

Rehearsal Rentals/Shows

KEM, Al Jarreau, Nelson Rangell, Adam Deitch and Lettuce, and many others have called The DSRP their temporary home for rehearsals, video shoots, photo shoots, and live concerts.


Our studio is complemented regularly about having the most unparalleled selection of equipment of any community music school in the region.
