Q. What IS this place?
A. Semitone Studios is a combination coffee shop, music studio, and live music venue – with room for anyone who wants to be creative.
Semitone is the word musicians use to refer to a particular distance between two notes, the smallest distance generally used in Western music. Anything is possible, one tiny step at a time. Everyone has a semitone…what’s yours?
Q. Coffee Shop?
A. Actually, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, all self-serve. Come on in and stare at your phone or maybe even talk to other humans. We have a puzzle on the go at all times, and lots of board games. Bring your own food if you like.
Q. Music what?
A. Yes. Semitone is home base for local musician Taylor Giacoma as well as several other musicians. We make music, we teach music. We currently offer lessons in voice, piano, guitar, flute, recorder, saxophone – and hope to expand. We also have recording facilities. And, last but not least, we are a live music venue. Starting 17 March, we will host live music every Friday evening.If you’re a musician, get in touch. If you want to be a musician, get in touch. Just get in touch, okay?
