School of Sound Recording rebrands as Spirit Studios

To celebrate nearly 40 years of success in audio engineering, the School of Sound Recording (SSR) has announced that it is rebranding as Spirit Studios.

The educational institute, which offers industry and degree-standard courses including Music Production, Music Business & Creative Industries and Electronic Music Production & DJ Practice, has introduced a number of changes and upgrades, including:

  • replacing many of its studio consoles
  • creating new classroom facilities

While continuing to strengthen and build partnerships within the creative industries, Spirit Studios will also house its own radio station, providing new opportunities for students and staff.

About Spirit Studios and SSR

Manchester-based recording studio, Spirit Studios, opened its doors 1980, servicing the needs of bands from the North-West of England, including 808 State, The Smiths and The Stone Roses.

Recognising an increase in demand for professionally trained sound engineers, the studio became the UK’s first audio engineering and music production school in 1984.

After outgrowing its premises in Tariff Street, the school relocated to its current larger premises in Ardwick and changed its name to the School of Sound Recording (SSR).

Ready to return to its roots, Spirit Studios will continue to play a key part in the music scene and prepare current and prospective students for successful futures within the creative industries.
