Sydney Music Room FAQ
This section has answers to our most common questions.
How do I book a room?
Please use the calendar provided on our Bookings page.
Is the equipment included in the room hire?
Who uses the music rooms?
Anybody and everybody who wants to play an instrument. Teachers, students, hobbyists, small groups, vocal groups, kindermusik etc.
Do you have a drum kit?
Unfortunately we do not have a drum kit. Our space is not fit out for live drums. We do have a very nice cajon in room 306 as well as various bits of percussion.
Can I/we get loud?
The room is not soundproofed, so we have limits on volume. For most musicians, this will be fine. Unfortunately, we can no longer have Opera singers (sorry!)
Where are you located?
Our studio is located in Haymarket at 661 George Street, suites 306, level 3. We are directly across the street from the Starbucks at George and Campbell. The Haymarket Hotel is part of our building. If you have any trouble finding the place send an SMS to my mobile at 0435 061 163.
How many people can fit in the room?
Depends on your activity. Five people sitting with instruments are cosy but perfectly fine. It is possible to fit in more people, however seating is limited.
How do I meet other musicians who want to play?
Please feel free to make a post on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/sydneymusicroom
What equipment do you have in the rooms?
We have quite a bit of gear for you to use. Please reference the Room 306.
