Below is a list of partners that work in conjunction with the Sound Training College.
In July 2002 Grouse Lodge in Co. Westmeath was launched to become Irelands first International Residential Recording Studio. Located near the picturesque village of Rosemount in county Westmeath, just off the main Dublin/Galway road and just an hour from Dublin city and Airport, “Grouse Lodge” georgian estate has undergone a total restoration/ transformation in which the studio complex is housed. Our students get the unique opportunity to partake in work experience in Grouse Lodge, where they experience working on professional recording sessions.
Temple Lane Recording Studios has been at the centre of Irish music since 1984. From Whipping Boy to Rihanna, a huge range of acts have recorded some of the most important songs and albums of the last 30 years here.

At Temple Lane Studios, our students get the chance to take part in sessions with both established bands and up and coming bands alike during their work experience.
After 10 years in its new home it has established itself as Dublin's premier rehearsal space, due to its great value, excellent service, friendly staff and over 20 years in the business.

We have had some very famous clients, such as Ray Lamontagne, Jimmy Chamberlain (Smashing Pumpkins) Def Leppard, Paul Cook (Sex Pistols), Dinosaur Jr, Edwin Collins,Van Morrison, The Corrs, The Thrills, The Script and The Frames, but young bands get the same friendly treatment that well established acts receive.
