So you’ve got a band together with a few mates and you want to make some noise, but where do you rehearse without pissing the neighbours off?
The Studio Newcastle opened in early 2007 as the brainchild of touring Musician / Producer / Engineer Kenny Jewell. The idea of building a state of the art audio production facility, that could also be used for artist preproduction and rehearsal, had been a dream of Jewell’s for many years. Over the past 25 years of his professional career Jewell has spent countless hours in rehearsal and recording facilities all over the country. Coupled with his insight gained from performing with some of Australia’s best known acts, Jewell was inspired to build a unique facility to create music. And so The Studio came into being‚ A place that enables and encourages all facets of the creative process. A place that has been built to give musicians the facilities they deserve – Immaculate and spacious studios, state of the art equipment, professional service and support and a creative atmosphere.

For many musos in Newcastle a rehearsal at RTN in Mayfield is a right of passage. Make no mistake, there is some real magic going on within these walls.

On top of all this, Geoff and the boys are top blokes who are only too willing to help you out, offer advice and keep you rocking.
