Recording & Rehearsal

Cooper Hall is hired as a live recording space. With a bright acoustic and a beautiful Steinway B Grand Piano the scope for recording is broad.

With views straight out across the rear terrace and garden, the environment is conducive to nurturing creative projects and provides spaces to relax between recording sessions. There is a small, self-contained cottage which sleeps up to four available to hire on site. Cooper Hall is about a mile from Frome where there are excellent local shops, cafes and restaurants.

“It really is a luxury to be able to use Cooper Hall to record in. It’s such a serene and atmospheric space and to top if off has one of the finest Steinway B Grand Pianos I’ve ever had the joy to play.”
