State of the Art Studios

In the heart of Bruton in the Somerset countryside, The Queen Elizabeth Music School, which was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in March 2019, is the best of its kind both architecturally and practically in the South West.

The acoustically treated Hauser & Wirth Recital Hall is large enough for an orchestra and connects directly to the Dolphin Productions recording suite on the upper levels. The suite comes complete with three live rooms including a drum room and a dedicated vocal booth. Built with both performance and recording in mind, the hall offers a capacity of 120 with adjustable seating, a projector screen, dynamic lighting and the potential for outdoor performances in the adjacent courtyard.

We offer a creative and inspiring experience encompassing all areas of music, from soloists and groups wishing to record their music, to choirs and ensembles looking to perform, the building has all the equipment in the perfect space to achieve this. In addition, the Studio Manager is on hand to help, advise and produce.
