By working closely with these institutions, Wenger gains a deep understanding of the challenges faced by musicians in various contexts, allowing them to develop tailored solutions that address specific needs. Wenger also collaborates with leading architects and acousticians to design performance spaces that maximise sound quality and audience experience. Through these collaborative efforts, Wenger has earned the trust and respect of the music community, solidifying their position as a reliable partner and a trusted provider of performance equipment.

Studiobricks practice pods available to hire at Schott Music’s Central London Shop

Studiobricks practice pods available to hire at Schott Music's Central London Shop

Schott Music offers Studiobricks spaces to hire for practice or teaching, right in the heart of central London.

International music publisher Schott Music has been at their iconic Great Marlborough Street address since 1908.  Three years ago they installed Studiobricks practice pods for musicians to use as teaching and practice spaces, and the pods have proved to be an excellent resource for musicians in London.

The two practice pods, supplied and installed by Black Cat Music & Acoustics, are each equipped with a piano and are suitable for up to two musicians or a musician and a teacher.  (Three other rehearsal rooms are also available).  The pods are useful spaces for teaching and rehearsing music in central London – just a 5-minute walk from Oxford Circus.

The Studiobricks booths for rehearsing and recording music, vocals, voiceover and podcasts are easy to assemble, and offer great sound-isolation and pleasant interior acoustics.
