Diane Giardi, East End Arts Previous Education Director comments:
"Our recording studio will be a great resource for student, emerging and established musicians to take their talents and career to the next level with a professional recording of their work for promotion, sales, for themselves, and more. Our rates will be very affordable in an effort to make the recording studio accessible to all. We are pleased to offer this opportunity to the many musicians – budding and professional – across Long Island. This recording studio would not have been possible without a vision, funds, time, and expertise – special thanks to the Joel Foundation, Bill Sperls, Noah Gorman, Paulette Sherman and her family, and the Town of Riverhead for their dedication to this project. We are so grateful to everyone involved in making this a reality."

Special thanks to the following individuals and entities for making this possible:

  • The Joel Foundation, for their funding of our recording studio equipment
  • Bill Sperls, for his dedication of time and talent, along with his students, in designing our studio
  • Noah Gorman, sound engineer, for setting up and organizing our studio
  • The Town of Riverhead, for completing space renovations and for their ongoing support
  • And a very special thanks to Paulette Sherman and the Sherman family, who in memory of their late son, Jesse F. Sherman, for which the studio is named, has contributed items from Jesse’s own recording studio and has allowed the passion that Jesse felt for his music be an inspiration for all those that follow
