In 2010, GPH (Grand Piano Haus) designed and completed the most advanced audio-video studio for pianists in the metro Chicago area.
In the past, many of our clients criticized their experiences regarding other local recording studios, especially the lack of finding a studio with a high quality, concert-prepped piano. We were made aware of how frustrating it could be to try and express emotion, dynamics or expression on a sub-standard piano in a recording studio. When we were designing our studio, our intentions were to focus on not only a high quality room utilizing the latest in recording technology, but also to allow pianists to record on the industry's finest pianos.
Our audio recordings are suited best for:
* A gift for a loved one or an adoring fan
* Audition or Competition submissions
* Artist Promotional Material
* Recital mementos
* Performance mementos
