On Wednesday, May 3, the public is invited to the New Heights Panel Discussion: Building a Home Studio, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Centre, located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.  Panelists Jim Jeffery, Steven Leavitt and Thomas Brewer will discuss every musician’s dream—constructing a home recording studio. 

Panelists will share all of the basic aspects of setting up a home recording studio, including details on equipment needs and setting budgets for costs associated with building a home studio.

Having worked on many records for major and indie labels, Jeffery understands both sides of the recording studio and regularly works on recording projects for various artists. Labels that he has credit on include Virgin, Columbia and Metal God Records.

Steven Leavitt holds a certificate for Audio Engineering from the Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA. His company I Create Sound consults musicians through the recording process.  Leavitt has worked in a wide variety of spaces, from world-class recording studios to garages, even recording an entire album in a Venice Beach loft.
