Studio Owners Panel
Running a successful recording studio today requires technical knowledge, financial understanding, negotiating skills, musical training, trend awareness, marketing chops, a focused bravado, and the patience and persistence of a top-flight babysitter. And nowhere in the world is that combination refined more to an entrepreneur’s delight than in Music City itself. Sharon Corbitt, a 33-year Music Row veteran, has managed multiple recording studios, including Ocean Way Nashville, The Sound Kitchen and Grand Victor Sound (aka RCA Studio A). Her many current studio and community projects include All Good Factory with business partner Mike Kopp to manage Ben Folds’ artist career and his diverse interests that involve photography, music education and music therapy. Sharon will moderate this panel composed of several of Nashville’s most talented, savvy and successful studio owners and operators. Come and get a clear picture of Nashville’s studio landscape today, and the factors driving change.
