Lane and Lane offer a unique one-to-one Songwriting Course, or Songwriter Workshop at the Beehouse Recording Studio. A very inspiring day, run to professional standards, we are happy to work in most genres and styles. This is generally a five hour course although it can be extended. During the Songwriting Course, the customer takes a song from an idea or a set of lyrics through to a final product, learning on the way how a song is put together. If you wish, real instruments may be recorded. You can add real bass, drums, guitar, piano, keyboards, strings, all to your personal taste, with the skilled help of our production specialist, who will also play in lines for you if required. The commercial quality results are then available on a CD at the end of the day. We work with individuals with all kinds of musical backgrounds - some arrive ready to put down an entire song with lyrics, melody, harmonies and an ability to record the vocals and instrumentation. Some arrive with a tune in their head and very little else. As well as the CD, you may also have a video made of your day, if you wish, for an additional charge.
At the Beehouse we are accustomed to working with professionals and amateurs alike, and so if you decide that you would like to promote your finished track and make it available on the internet for purchase, we can also help you with these aspects. A fabulous gift for singers, musicians, or creatives. Ideally located for Shropshire, Powys, Midlands, Birmingham, Cheshire, and Wales.

" I just had a very productive 2 days here, getting four songs done. I'm incredibly pleased with the results. My only regret is that I can't stay for longer and keep working! There is no lack of experience or creativity to be found here and I would recommend it to all. " -Jared McClune, Norway / US
" Had a brilliant day, surpassed my expectations. Totally thrilled with the tracks that I have from the day, thank you" Sally Saunders, West Wales
" Many thanks for a very productive and enjoyable day's recording. Clive and I have been songwriting together for a number of years. I think for songwriters who would like to develop their material and produce a strong and original recording, I would recommend working with Beehouse Studio. Not only is Phil a very experienced engineer, I particularly appreciated his intuitive and sensitive approach to the process of producing, creating a unique soundscape that brought out the individuality of the song and through careful and attentive guidance, bringing the best out of the performance. I would certainly want to come back to produce and record further material. " David O'Brien
"I had three sessions will Phil producing a song which i wrote. Within those 3 sessions I saw the song develop and was most encouraged with what was done. I am so happy with the result and I intend to put an album together with other songs which I have written. In all I had a great time and I have definitely come away encouraged to write more songs for the future. Loved every minute . Thanks Phil and Jane " Steve, South Shields
