Welcome to Gate City Studios!

Specializing in classical, jazz, and other acoustic genres, Gate City Studios in Greensboro, NC is in the business of recording performances. Everything about the studio’s design—from the room’s acoustics to the selection of microphones—facilitates comfort and enjoyment in the act of making music.

Gate City Studios caters to the specific needs of today’s emerging professional musicians. We’ve structured our services to reflect the fact that for many of our clients the need for promotional materials for social media, websites, and various applications eclipses the need to create albums.


Recognizing the vital role video content has in reaching 21st century audiences, we offer affordable video services perfect for promoting your talent. We’ve been very intentional in creating a clean and neutral space that allows you and your music to come to the forefront.

Lastly, but of importance to many, Gate City Studios features a rare and fastidiously-kept 9-foot vintage Chickering concert grand piano. Its warm and clear tone has been specifically voiced to the studio acoustic and its fluid and consistent action lends itself to immediate comfort and control.
