Mike Muggli - Music Lessons & Recording

Genre: Performing

I have been playing piano and synthesizers for over 40 years, and have 25 years of experience in recording and music production. Studio A can handle bands and solo artists, and I have many instruments that could add to your project. And if you’re a synth or keyboard player like me, there are many toys to share!”

I’m a singer/songwriter with a focus on vocal, guitar, piano, and perform meaningful songs that match the audience and venue. My goal is to leave the world in a better place than I found it.


Cathy Grochowski

A guitarist, vocalist and occasional recording artist, Cathy performs at fund-raising events for charity organizations, churches, and elsewhere.

Having a party? Cathy might be just the right addition to your event. STUDIO NUMBER: 307
