History of The Piano Studio

The Piano Studio is a full service recording studio that specializes in piano-based soloists and ensembles.

We offer two world-class pianos to choose from - a Steinway 9' concert grand and a Baldwin 7' studio grand. Both pianos are professionally voiced and regulated on a regular basis and kept in "concert ready" condition to satisfy the most discriminating pianist.

These truly exceptional instruments reside in a spacious 700 ft² live tracking room with elegant hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings; the engineers are discreetly downstairs in the 600 ft² control room, leaving you comfortable to be yourself and sound your best.

While we do specialize in producing first class piano tracks, we love to record everyone! Violinists, classical chamber groups, solo cellists and acoustic guitarists, jazz sextets, opera divas, chinese guzheng players, and rock bands, along with many others, have chosen to record at The Piano Studio.

We have recently relocated to a wonderful new space about ten minutes North of downtown Seattle, in a quiet suburb full of old growth trees and unrestricted parking all around. The current location follows eight successful years on Seattle's Capitol Hill, and one year in our original space in Albuquerque N.M.

The studio is owned and operated by pianist Martin Buff, but sessions are available with long time house engineer Alex Rose and we welcome independent engineers.

Shaun Michael Poore (Album)

Debut - Local composer's Kickstarter campaign!

The Piano Studio

We are pleased to help launch one of the studio's up-and-coming new composers in his Kickstarter fundraising campaign. Over several months at The Piano Studio, Bellingham artist Shaun Michael Poore has put together a lovely, peaceful CD of original solo piano music. Now he's working to raise support to produce and distribute this debut album, "Simply Love". Please check out his campaign and join us in helping this project.

Some of the footage for the campaign video was shot in the studio, and you can listen to a preview selection of the tracks at Bandcamp.
