How to Create an In-Home Studio for Any Creative Endeavor
Whether you like singing, playing piano, sculpting or weaving, it’s easier to pursue your passion at home when you have the space to do it. Practicing your skills at home can be a real challenge when you’re trying to work around your family members or deal with constant distractions. Making a multi-purpose studio is the perfect way to focus on your passion at home while staying organized. Find out how to make one below.
Things to Consider Before Diving In
While a home studio can be budget-friendly, it’s still a big decision to make a dedicated space for your hobbies or passions at home. Here are a few things to think about:
- Finishing your basement might be the perfect solution for making a studio.
- You can also work with an existing guest bedroom to make a studio.
- Whichever room you choose, think about the materials that will help boost your resale value, such as hardwood floors.
- Learning how to budget for your project will help you keep your goals in focus.
Using Your Studio
Creating a home studio is a lot of work, so make sure you get the most out of your new space.
- Look for online lessons that you can use to stay on track with your practice.
- Whatever your skills may be, try to form good habits that will help you practice daily.
- Make sure you have good lighting that helps you focus and relax as you use your studio.
- Work towards ways to reduce distractions so you can meet your goals.
Keeping Your Studio Clean and Organized
Your studio will only live up to its potential if you keep it clean and clutter-free.
- Wipe down commonly used items to prevent germs and infections.
- Keep some homemade hand sanitizer around so you can clean up quickly.
- Keep the rest of the house clutter-free so it doesn’t invade your studio.
Having a studio can make all the difference when it comes to achieving your creative goals at home. With the right design, your studio can be flexible enough to serve as a guest room, workout room, or craft room while also providing a quiet sanctuary for you to work on your skills.
As of Thursday, 3/12, we have moved all our lessons to an online platform. Currently enrolled students are continuing their musical education without interruption, until it is safe to resume normal in person lesson scheduling.
New students are welcome to enroll for online private lessons at any time. Now more than ever in these challenging times, we are reminded of why we teach music and how music can be a wonderful outlet for students of any age. E-mail us at Anahid@ASPianoStudio.com or call 888-855-1065 for more information.
We are all in this together. Please know we are here to support you in any way we can.
With our best wishes for your health and well-being,
Anahid Syourapian and the faculty at ASPS

It is my great pleasure to announce that our student Nikole, after many months of dedicated and consistent practicing, has received offers from all the universities she auditioned for!
One university granted her an award based on her excellent performance in the audition, and another university admitted her in piano performance concentration directly which happens very rare in university music programs!
🎉Nikole also won a gold medal in Quebec international classical music competition in Piano with a dazzlingly Chopin Etude!🎉
We are sad to lose her as a student, but very happy she have decided to pursue music as a profession!
We are very happy to share that for a very first time our studio is participating in the Kids Music Day in partnership with Keep Music Alive. They are a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to promote the VALUE of MUSIC: for children’s education, for the many types of therapy music is
