A new studio space in Riverdale Park offers musicians a WeWork-like membership for practice locations as well as musical equipment to use.
Located at 5650 Rivertech CT. in the Discovery District, The Shed, which opened in February, is accessible to members 24 hours a day through the use of a digital key on their smartphone.
Inside are four studios that can be used for rehearsing, giving music lessons, recording audition tapes, hosting photo shoots and live concerts.
Members can also borrow gear like bass guitars, amps, keyboards, and even concert percussion instruments like a glockenspiel.
Owner Jauvon Gilliam also runs Capital Percussion + Backline Rentals and is the principal timpanist of the National Symphony Orchestra.
He said the idea for The Shed came about when Capital Percussion managers were looking for warehouse space large enough to hold their growing inventory.
When the pandemic hit, the team started thinking about trying something a little different and came across the location of the Discovery District “during a 3 a.m. web browsing session.”
Monthly subscriptions cost approximately up to two four-hour sessions at standard studio rates, starting at $250 per month. Individual sessions can also be booked.
