We had our school trip here! The children were split into groups and went on different days to record a track about their topic at school. The guys were brilliant with the kids, very patient and really done well with a group of 9 year olds! The kids really enjoyed it. Looking forward to hearing the finished track! Thank you for your time � More...
I took a trip through to Skapade studios this week and it was one of the best studio sessions I've ever had, the boys who run it and very passionate about what they do and so eager to help others. I strongly advise a visit no matter what stage of production your at - you'll get the right assistance for sure! More...
Really nice guys and very passionate about what they do. I had a session with Stephen Kirkwood today and even though I've been producing in Ableton for some time it was great to see how he goes about his work and translates ideas into soundwaves so to speak :-) Very happy I have another session booked and would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in developing their production skills in tech trance/techno.
Ps Stephen has some unbelievable productions in the making ;-) More...
They have really helped me develop my skills Nd are really great guys, would really recommend them
Absolutely brilliant came into the school and Steven (big gal) he just taught us good stuff and some mad tunes cheer for the day
Just finished the masterclass and I couldn't recommend these guys enough, I went in a total beginner and walked away with vital information that will help me along the way on my music production journey. The guys are down to earth and professional at the same time. I feel I have learned a lot and for anyone that is thinking of taking the leap in to production for the first time, or just wants to brush up on their skills, get in touch with them. You won't regret it More...
Well that was a total blast! Just finished the Ableton beginners course and it has enhanced my productions massively, i have been using Ableton for a while now but going nowhere with it until skapade got in touch, and i must say its one of the best decisions i have made!
Well worth it. Learned so much over the eight weeks and cant wait to get back in and learn more. You's open tomorrow?�
Shout out to all the boys that make the place special, but big shout out to Mr Kirkwood for passing on his knowledge and of course Big Gallotelli for making it happen.
Great job you's are doing down there, great for us inspiring producers, great for the scene and great for our little town, Dumbarton.
So if you are looking to get into making your own music, doesn't matter what level you are at, you will definitely, positively take something from the course that will enhance your productions.
See yah real soon � More...

Currently taking a 1 to 1 course at Skapade and loving it so far! All the team are extremely helpful and I’m learning a lot to advance with my productions!
Currently learning to DJ and as a 'newbie' decided to pay a visit to SKapade studios, during some time spent back home. Had been feeling quite stuck with it all, which left me starting to lack in confidence.
I had one to one DJ lessons with Steven Galloni.
My sessions with Steven were personalised to my needs and he provided invaluable support and advice. Steven has been brilliant to work with. He's encouraging, professional, motivational, has such a wealth of knowledge and also great fun, which made it a real laugh.
The rest of the team who I met Stephen Kirkwood, Stuart Mclellan, Craig Hughes and Jack Dyer were welcoming, supportive, willing to share advice and are true professionals.
Fantastic environment and excellent equipment. Had a great time learning with a mix of house, trance and techno tracks.
On my return to London myself and Steven had a further session via. Skype to help keep my progression going.
As a result with the help from SKapade things are really starting to come together for me. In fact I'm enjoying it that much planning to start music production with them �
Feel I've learnt a great deal in a short space of time and it's definitely been a milestone on my journey without a doubt. Would highly recommend.
The level of professionalism and talent is outstanding. SKapade is also a place that's doing things for kids and the community, which is amazing and inspirational. Looking forward to see whats next with both the guys and myself.
Doing Scotland proud! ��� More...
I had a great experience with SKapade. While there I spent time with Steven Galloni, who is an excellent teacher, knows and loves music and DJing like I’ve never seen before. Without a doubt Steven can provide the best environment for any aspiring DJ’s to learn their trade. 100% recommend. More...
Great bunch of hard working, talented and professional people. If you’re serious about music production, stop watching terrible you tube videos and get in touch with the team at Skapade!
Was in the studio over the weekend for a DJ & Production masterclass to get a feel for what the guys have to offer. Loved every minute of it, you can tell these boys are driver by passion and they take a genuine interest in wanting to develop you.
Definitely going to be back in throughout the year for more of what they have to offer! More...
Been for an introductory masterclass recently very impressed! wee hidden gem tucked away in a side street of dumbarton great set up great vibe. Stephen Galloni is full of energy and very engaged. When funds allow I hope to return soon! Any aspiring dj/producer should take note of this place as a starting point in their journey! More...
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at SKapade Studios. I had already started doing some djing and was hoping to go and learn more and improve on my technical ability. I had the one to one session with Steven Galloni, who was extremely engaging and very funny which made me feel at ease. It also gave more confidence on the decks as the day went on. Although it was quite hard to find the studio, I thought the course was well worth it and everyone at sKapade was professional and welcoming. More...
Have had a few production lessons over the past few months with Jack! very knowledgeable and attentive when it comes to asking questions if you are unsure about something, weather or not its during studio time.
The other staff members i have met are always keen to ask how you are getting on even if you haven't worked with them so its good they all show an interest! I've got a fair trek to get to the studio but its definitely worth it!
P.S played my first produced track in front of a live audience the other week and it went down smashing! More...
I have been coming to Skapade studio's for just over a year now and would like to start off by saying just how good the team are, regardless of what level you are at with music production they can help you achieve your goals.
I personally can see a huge difference in the quality of my productions since i have been to Skapade Studio's learning new techniques and workflow idea's.
Since attending i have got to know the team behind Skapade Studio's more and more and there is always a great atmosphere in the studio. I would highly recommend Skapade to anyone that is interested in music production.
Keep up the good work More...
If you're looking for creative vibes and a relaxed environment this is the place for you!
I can't thank Stephen enough for his time, this really was like watching a genius at work, then getting to work on something to call my own really gave me the confidence to get started on even more tracks back home.
Steven is such a creative genius, he really just enthuses anyone around him with this energy and passion. I would definitely recommend any upcoming producers to get involved.
Kit is top notch and so are are all the skills you'll walk away with, making you even more eager to start creating your unique sound! More...
Well the tuition is superb anyways. Looking forward to get started again soon. What I wanted to review is the new Ashley Smith Midi Pack. I just bought it and took a quick listen and I really like what I hear. Hope that the Skapade team will release more of the sorts :) More...
My 12 year old son comes here and has the best time!! He is learning so much and he is really gaining confidence after each lesson. Also couldn't have ever imagined meeting a group of people who are so lovely and give you their time so willingly. � More...
My son has participated in several workshops with the SKapade guys over the past year. He has had great experiences and has learned a lot not just about the music industry/social media but about positive mindset and goal achievement. He loves going to the workshops and always comes home buzzing. The guys also heavily support community engagement and are super positive about the work they are doing. Keep it up guys. You are doing an outstanding job More...
SKapade studios is great environment to learn in. All the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I've been getting help with my music production and have learned so much over the last 10 months. Highly recommend checking the studio out! More...

Amazing studio set up! The Skapade team are amazing and really talented - they will get the best out of you. The number 1 place to go to take your music career to the next level!
People at SKapade are forward thinking with an excellent eye for production/teaching/knowledge of music, what sets them apart is the fact they are all about the community and giving back to the youngsters, I have had the pleasure of knowing the guys involved in this company and what they are about. Approachable hands on individuals who take massive pride in their work. More...
Been going to the studio for over a year now and it’s top class service. From complete beginner to wanting help with that final touch on music production the guys are amazing. The membership scheme is also brilliant not forgetting the banter from big Gal! Defo recommend ! More...
The skill of the SKapade engineers is without a doubt plain to hear on all of their productions but more than that it's their passion for music and warm vibes they extend. Feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. A top studio and amazing contribution to the music community. More...
Recently started a 1 to 1 course at Skapade and loving it so far! The guys are extremely talented and passionate about what they do which is excellent to see. Would definitely recommend
The team we have down here at SKapade is amazing! We love having positive vibes down at the studio. If you're into music production and DJing then you have to get in touch!
Been going to Skapde for just over a year now where I was first taught how to dj, now producing my own music. First class team and can’t do enough to accommodate your needs! Highly recommend to anyone.
Smashing place if you are looking to get into or improve your productions! Class bunch of guys that are really interested in seeing you progress and get better! Couldn’t recommend enough.
Fantastic work, just seen the boys helping a gentleman achieve his dreams in Oban!
