Our Story.
MAKING THE ROCK STAR DREAM A REALITY

Some say that behind every success there is a story.
The idea of MSP came about during a conversation with a friend over dinner. She was looking for fun and unique ideas to celebrate her 10 year old daughter’s birthday, a  child passionate about music. That was a true revelation! It was at that moment that the idea of ‘My Studio Party’ was born.

THE MUSIC IN THE HEART OF ‘MY STUDIO PARTY’!

Our team consists of passionate people and renowned musicians: artists, entrepreneurs, sound engineers, singers-songwriters and entertainers that love to share their talent and gift of music.

It has been proven throughout history that music is a powerful tool that brings people together regardless of their differences. Why not use it to create strong memorable moments to cherish for years to come?

We look forward to creating these memories for you.
