2020 was supposed to be a big year for Sound Check Studios, with the business moving into a new location after making music since 2013.
"After two weeks it was pretty apparent that we needed to do something other than just sitting around and wait for the restrictions to be lifted," says Michael Grassman, owner of Sound Check Studios.
Through various virtual realms students have access to, Michael and his instructors continue to jam out with students.

"I always say it's a great time to be learning because you've got the time at home. I have been at home hours a day practicing and making videos. Just trying to get better at things that I haven't had time to do before," says Michael.
This is why even during hard times Sound Check Studios is offering one free lesson on top of their usual specials.
"With the virtual realm, we are tagging on one free lesson just to get the ball rolling and then get the special of first four lessons for $50," says Michael.
They'll also try to work with you to spread the joy of music.
"I've got a new student right now that we do rentals as well and I am dropping off a drum set for them at their doorstep just so they can something to practice with for the first four lessons," says Michael.
For parents who think their child marches to the own beat of their drum, that's what Sound Check Studios is all about.
"To see their joy when they get to focus on what they want to learn, that's a big part of our mentality is teaching the student what they want to learn. Not force-feeding them stuff they don't care about," says Michael.
So whether you have a future rock star or future Mozart, Michael and Sound Check Studios has an instrument for you.
