Gate City Studios

Classical. Jazz. Acoustic.

Welcome to Gate City Studios!

Specializing in classical, jazz, and other acoustic genres, Gate City Studios in Greensboro captures inspired performances--with an equal emphasis on video and audio.


We offer products for those in need of audition and social media-ready materials, and as a full-service studio we are prepared to go the distance for EP and LP releases as well.

Gate City Studios is one of the very few studios in the region to boast a 9-foot concert grand piano. Our rare 1962 Baldwin restored to its original glory able to satisfy the most demanding soloists and chamber players.


Classical singers will appreciate the option of an in-house pianist well-versed in their repertoire. This alleviates the difficulty of coordinating venue, recording technician, and pianist.

We look forward to speaking with you about your needs!
