Checklist for hiring a London band rehearsal space
How much space do you need?
Do a quick count of band members, producers, and essentially everyone who will be involved so you know how many people your music rehearsal space needs to cater for. Most listings will say how many people the space is designed for, but if you have any questions you can send the host a message using the ‘message host’ button on the listing page.
How will you get there?
Ideally, you want a rehearsal space conveniently located for all people involved. Fortunately, there are spaces located across north, east, south and west London. If you want to drive, it’s best to choose a music practice room in zones 2-4, and using Tutti’s advanced search you can filter for spaces with paid or free parking options. Each listing on Tutti will also show you public transport options including the nearest tube lines and bus routes.
What equipment do you need?
Rehearsal spaces often come with a variety of instruments included. Decide now whether you’ll be bringing your own or if you need the space to provide them, so you can check with the host before you book. They will be able to provide you with an inventory list.
How much time do you need?
Studios can be hired on a short-term or ad hoc basis, and usually, charge by the hour or day, but you can also find studios with membership deals if you’re looking for a space to rehearse on a regular basis.
What time of day do you want to practise?
If you’re only available to play outside of work hours or want to stay late into the night, then you’ll need to carefully check each studio’s opening hours before you book. It’s possible to find rehearsal spaces that offer 24 hours access, 7 days a week.
