The session musicians we use are seasoned professionals, tops in their field, who work for very reasonable rates for Groove Tunes.
To audition for studio musician work please contact us to schedule an appointment. Note: An in-person audition will be necessary in order to be considered for future session work.
How it works:
Often times our clients cannot provide their own accompaniment, or their arrangements or sessions may require instrumentation or vocals beyond what they can self-provide.
These are the occasions when studio musicians are needed. If you are on file in our Studion Musicians Audio Catalog you may be contacted and asked if you would like to contribute to the session. If you are interested and available at a time suitable to the recording schedule we will arrange for you to come join the session or to come overdub your instrument or voice at a specifed date and time. You will always be able to negotiate your own billing rates in advance (we can help you determine what range would be expected by the client). Payment terms will be discussed at this time.
Our clients encompass a variety of musical genres, therefore we are auditioning musicians representing all musical types, instruments, and styles of playing. For your audition you should prepare a fifteen to twenty-minute performances showcasing your instrument. You may structure your audition to demonstrate one or more musical styles but the musical content needs to be less than twenty minutes in total duration. The entire audition process usually lasts less than one hour. There is no fee involved.
Groove Tunes Studios is equipped with a drum kit, a piano, three synthesizers, and two guitar amps for auditioning musicians‘ use. Other than for keyboard players and drummers, musicians are encouraged to bring their own instruments to the audition.
