Whether you are a song writer wanting to record and develop your songs or a person needing to transfer some valuable audio to the digital format, give Cardiff Music Studios a call to see if we can meet your needs.

We are able to take the song from the idea stage, write it out for copyright purposes, develope the arrangement, call on musicians, have the song recorded and ready for production. Check out some of the samples to hear the original idea of the song as it was first sung to me all the way through to final version.

Creating educational material including the printed page for publication or digital download. My musical education is useful in the designing and production of pedagogical material.

My experience with publishing is advantageous in the production of song charts that go along with the recordings the client is making.


My rates can be hourly, or project based. In order to determine how long the project will take time is taken to understand the scope of the project. By understanding the project I can determine the tasks invovled to complete the job. A written contract outlining expectations, time lines, defining what 'complete' means and the schedule of payments is generated and agreed to by the client and myself. Everything needs to be in writing to protect both parties.

Please view the Past Project Gallery page to see the list of the various recordings completed at Cardiff Studios.

We look forward to helping you complete your music project - on time - on budget - with creative zeal - and with a smile.
