Recording your School CD with Recordings 4 Schools couldn’t be easier just choose a date which suits you and give us a call.
First, you can check our availability using the calendar to the right (below on mobile devices). Once you find the day which suits you best, either give us a call on 01225 302143 or send us an email to book your Recording Day. We will send you written confirmation of the date along with details of our engineers, so you can relax and prepare your pupils for this exciting experience.
Our engineers will turn up at your school around 7.30am in order to set up our Mobile Recording Studio in your school hall or suitable space. We are then ready to record your pupils (and staff!) from 9am through to the end of the school day. Some schools prefer to finish by lunchtime, particularly when the hall is used for lunch. This is entirely up to you and there is no need to decide this in advance.
The majority of schools we record run a competition to design the album front cover. To make this easy, you can download a template from our website here. The winning design will then be featured on the front cover of the CD. If you really can’t decide between lots of entries, we can incorporate some of the runners up on the inside pages of the booklet too! It’s helpful if our engineers can have a copy of your proposed front cover by the day of the recording to avoid any delays in the production of your CDs.
Take delivery of your CDs
All our CDs are produced by a professional printing house to retail quality standard and each one will come individually cellophane wrapped. This means your pupils will have something they can be really proud of for years to come. Following the recording session and receipt of the artwork, all you need to do is place an order for however many CDs you would like, subject to a minimum order of 50 discs. The more you order the cheaper they become and the more money your school can make – find out more about pricing. Once your order is confirmed, CDs are usually delivered to your school within 7-10 days.
All our CDs now include details of how to access the digital audio files online at no extra cost. Anyone who has purchased a CD from the school can now access digital files to transfer to their preferred means of listening to music. Your album will also be available for sale through our online shop which enables your school to raise even more money from album sales.
