Default Help needed naming a drum studio

Hi

I am just about to open a drum studio in the midlands and am looking for some name suggestions. I will be using this studio to offer lessons and practice facilities for drummers and local bands and music projects. Ideally I would like a name that is relatable to my business, whilst being fun and without scaring parents.

Any suggestions welcome but please keep them PG.

Thank you,

Colm

Welcome to the forum! I've been thinking about this since your earlier post at DFO. Your main money just might be in renting practice space so you might want *that* as the main emphasis of your name? Someone offered "The Practice Pad" over there which really is getting under my skin.

I do like "Practice Pad", but I'm also drawn to the Fox part of your surname. Fox Studios has a nice ring to it... but these guys may have got there first:

Alreet Am Ya? Studios would be appropriate. If my old housemate's Walsall affectations were anything to go by.

Pround n' Loud Studios

An Englishman I met yesterday in St-Lucia kept using the word "Posh", which made me giggle every time as in French Qc it either means scrotom or has a meanig similar to "it sucks".

Fancy guy he seemed, had his own villa and boat and referred to driving on the left as the "propa" side. Didnt feel proper to my groovy arse when I took that roundabout righty style and got stopped and reprimanded (nothing more) by local authorities....

Posh Studios in his honour.

In case anyone follows these things, posh is an acronym for "Port out, Starboard home"

Monied passengers on the Mediterranean Sea in days of yore would get their accommodations switched so their cabins would be on the shady side of the boat at all times.

Their boarding passes would be marked POSH.

I take any chance I can get to talk about word origins.

So, back on topic, in 20 years, one of these studio names offered up here for free could be the name of a highly successful studio.

I could foresee a big lawsuit : /

How about Midlands Drum Lessons & Studios ? Or Midlands Studios & Drum Lessons?
Too boring? But effective.

My guy seemed to be on the shady side of many things !

Quite the gentleman, but seemed like the dude inherited his lands from his colonial ancestors from the days of yore Larry.

Did not seem he would have hand-built his legacy by a mile.

Still, a nice day at the beach with interesting encounters.

How about you show us a pic of your studio, and we can help you name it?

After re-visiting this thread I see no reason not to name the studio after yourself. Nothing egotistical about (Sam Smith) Drum Studio. People will not have to try and remember a fancy, cute name and the advertising will tell people exactly whaat the name is.

I would not go for something obviously meant to sound clever or catchy, but rather a name that sounds like a predominant, established local studio.

For example instead of Thunder Crack Studio, maybe something like Midlands Drum Studio.
