Southampton branch of The
Southern School Of Popular Singing in 1998. Singing
clients have included a number of TV personalities looking
to improve their voices and most notably of late, the
2005 X Factor finalists 4Tune
who have been pupils of his since 1998. They were described
by the X Factor vocal coaches as the finest harmony
act they had ever heard. Gareth now co-runs the unique
40 voice Pop Choir (like Gospel, but with just pop songs)
Masse and is responsible for the Southampton branch
of it's junior version The
E Minor Pop Academy, which teaches 8-16 year olds
Pop vocals, harmony and choreography on a weekly basis.
He runs the mixing desk at all of the E Minor and En
Masse live shows, drawing on 20+ years experience in
His composition work has included clients
like Time Warner Video, major merchant banks and has
landed him a place on Meridian TV news. He's also quite
a nice bloke, as long as you don't mention the baldness.
All this experience, combined with the extensive facilities on offer, makes HL Studios the number one choice of recording studios in Southampton to record a CD.
