    Not his normal gig I'm sure, but Bryan did an awesome job with recording taps and music for my show. He listed carefully to my needs and was able to create a great final product. He created a flooring and smaller booth (that he put together last minute) which made the tap sounds pop and very specific. He worked fast, had great instincts and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him and would work with him again in a New York minute!

    I'm taking singing lessons with Bryan at the Factory, and had no prior singing experience. Bryan gives great, intuitive explanations about the techniques behind singing, and compliments those explanations with good exercises. He knows a lot about singing technique and music production, and his strong ear for pitch helps his explanations and feedback. He keeps class fun with stories and background behind different types of music, too.

    At the time of this review, I've only had my consultation; however, that was enough to sell me for life! Bryan has a bevy of experience and displays a genuine interest in the total development of the talent. He is also one of the friendliest people I have ever me especially meeting for the first time! I look forward to a long-time, successful professional relationship with Mr. Lash. If you're still looking, trust me, look no further -- Bryan is the man!

    Great work by Bryan and the crew to make a great song with all new music and had a blast doing it. High end equipment and the best studio musicians in the area. Couldn't have come out any better! Highest possible rating.

    I checked out a few places but ultimately decided to bring my daughter here for her voice lessons. We are extremely pleased with the experience and plan to continue for the foreseeable future.

    My voice lessons have been a lot of fun and quite the learning experience. Bryan has been a blast to work with. His long term experience as a teacher, music producer (and professional drummer!) has been invaluable in getting more than just a "voice lesson", but a true "recording studio experience". The ability to have the lessons in a real studio where recording and instant playback is available is unparalleled. Bryan’s ability to provide you with a “before picture” of one song, compared to that same song a few weeks later speaks VOLUMES toward actually hearing how you’ve improved over time. Also a recording studio allows you the ability to really focus on those key nuances in a certain phrase or word in a song to get it perfect when you can do it over and over and over again until Bryan says it's just right. In the studio setting it is so much more than standing there with an instructor over a piano for an hour and then go home and try to remember what you learned. At The Factory with Bryan you get to have access to the actual recording(s) of your lesson available to you at home when you practice during the week. These offerings makes the fundamental lessons regarding vowel phrasing, breathing techniques, etc. so much more fun. Lastly I love the great mix of fundamental lessons applied directly to some of my favorite songs/artists in a recording studio environment. You’re standing there singing into a screened microphone, with headphones on just like the pros. I mean seriously, how fun is that!?! Just a great experience all around. I'm very happy that I chose Bryan Lash and The Factory for my voice lessons.

    I am very satisfied with Bryan. I have taken singing lessons from him for three months. His teaching method is very good. By following his instructions, I can see I am making progress. I especially like the approach, he makes an exercise piece for me every time, so that I can sing with it after class. I enjoy learning from Bryan.

    Bryan does an excellent job of explaining the fundamentals of singing, providing exercises to assist in learning the fundamentals, and allowing the lessons to be a great deal of fun. Bryan is also a really good person and I enjoy the lessons very much.

    I've only been working with him for a monthish now, but I've improved leaps and bounds as a singer as a result. He's fun to work with, easygoing, and is very encouraging and good at pushing students to their fullest potential. Each lesson has been engaging and I've seen such growth in my singing thus far that it's been worth every penny. Finally, the experience provided by being able to sing in an actual recording studio is a boon to anyone who wants to actually go the extra mile and be a singer.

    I hired Bryan to help me record my Voice Acting Demo and everything went very smoothly. I had a really great time, and most importantly he made it a light-hearted atmosphere which really helped me get into character much easier. The only thing that made me worry a little bit was the fact that it took a little while for him to actually send me the demo, but sometimes work can hit pretty hard and there's just too much going on and you lose track of time. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely return to him if I ever needed any more recording done.

    Super friendly, knowledgeable, and resource intensive group of guys. From the initial interaction I felt welcomed and encouraged to share my art with them. If I could give 10 stars I would.
  • John V. May 23, 2013
    Recording is a tough art because the hardest thing to control is the mood, mindset, and creative environment that are so key to capturing special performances. I've recorded in multiple studios and working with Bryan is awesome. He knows how to create a great atmosphere during recording. When I've tracked with Bryan, I've always felt that elusive creative spark that can be so hard to find, especially when you've only got a window of time in the studio. Recording with him is exciting because the studio becomes a fireball of creative energy. No joke!

    Bryan helped my daughter with a recording for her musical theatre production. Not only was he professional, he was kind and patient with my nervous eleven year old. We have never been to a recording studio and by the time we were finished she didnt't want to leave. We would highly recommend Bryan and will plan to use his services in the future.
  • Kelly M. Jan 9, 2013
    I've worked with Bryan a few times with a couple of different projects and trust him to get the drum sound I want! With being not only an engineer, but a drummer as well, it's fun to bounce ideas back and forth until I get a killer take!
  • Ryan A. Dec 15, 2012
    My band recorded two projects with Bryan and we were more than happy with how they turned out. We are continuing to work with him to develop the band and are looking forward to future recording projects with Bryan.
  • Aaron P. Dec 13, 2012
    Bryan is a genius. He totally knows everything there is to know about recording and drumming. He's also just a great guy with a sense of humor and makes working with him fun as well. The whole environment at the studio is very professional and I have always left there feeling like I got my moneys worth.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Some advice when looking for a great recording experience: People, people, people. It's ALL about the people you work with NOT THE STUDIO OR THE GEAR! I can not stress this enough. Yes the gear can definitely help, but great tools in the hands of someone who can't use them properly are useless. At The Factory we have both. If you want it right the first time, go ahead and give The Factory Recording Studios a call!
