About

Studio Wizard founder and MD, Howard Turner has been involved in building, commissioning and operating audio facilities at the highest level for 30 years.

During triple careers as a musician/songwriter/producer, he simultaneously developed his own residential audio facility whilst undertaking product development in the pro audio field.

Requests to build and consult on clients’ facilities encouraged him to set up SW in the early 90’s.

During the past 2 decades under his leadership, SW has grown to become one of the most respected companies in its field.  Its integrated approach, facilitating the melding together of the various disciplines required to create a facility, has put it well ahead of traditional single-discipline companies by streamlining the conception and construction processes.

An interest in music technology education dating back to the inception of the discipline has put Howard in a unique position from which to assist educational institutions in the specification and development of not only facilities, but also curricula.  As a fully qualified teacher, Howard has experience of delivering training at all levels, from primary school to professorial seminars.

Howard continues to co-ordinate all aspects of the SW’s operations, and heads up the consultancy, testing and studio design aspects of the company.

Studios often fall far outside their experience and training and are very glad of our assistance.  Sadly, we also frequently get called in to offer remedial advice in instances where such projects have been attempted without prior consultancy.
