I am a graduate of the Third Street Music Settlement in NYC, the Ukrainian Music Institute of NY and NYU School of Business and Public Administration. I have 35 years of industry experience in performance, recording, arranging, producing and teaching. All fine and dandy, but all I've ever wanted to do is own and run a studio. Finally, my dream has come to fruition. I've had the opportunity to visit a lot of studios namely Electric LadyLand in NYC, Systems 2 in Brooklyn, NY, Edge Studio in Fairfield, CT, B Sharp in Astoria, NY, Newfound Studio in NYC, et al. Working at these studios just reinforced my desire to have a Class A studio of my own and now it's here. Top Shelf Studios is my baby and I would love nothing more than to have you come in and check it out. You won't be disappointed.
