Semitone Studios is a music studio/music venue located in the heart of Marple. We offer music lessons, recording sessions, and live music. We firmly believe that music should be accessible to everyone, and whilst we pride ourselves on the excellent musicianship of our team, we fully embrace all those who create in our community.

Musicians use the word 'semitone' to refer to the distance between two adjacent notes, generally the smallest distance found in Western music. We believe that anything is possible, one tiny step at a time.


Everyone has a semitone...what’s yours?
