Deane Cameron Recording Studio

Perched at the top of Allied Music Centre on the 7th floor is the Deane Cameron Recording Studio designed with artistic development in mind. Equally suited as a classroom for music education where students get hands-on with instruments, a space for musicians to rehearse for their big show at Massey Hall, or a professionally appointed recording studio where an artist can record their next masterpiece, creators will appreciate the acoustically treated space and its suite of available resources as they hone their craft and develop their art. The views of the city skyline will only add to the inspiring nature of the Studio.

Remembering Deane Cameron - On May 16, 2019, the world lost one of its greatest music champions. Deane Cameron started in the warehouse at EMI Music Canada in 1972, working his way to the top, becoming President in 1988 where he remained at the helm until 2012, leaving an indelible mark on Canadian culture. In 2015, Deane took over as President & CEO of the Corporation of Massey Hall & Roy Thomson Hall to drive the most significant revitalization in Massey Hall’s history. Now, with the opening of the Deane Cameron Recording Studio, he will be intrinsically linked to the legendary Massey Hall as the studio is perched atop the seven storey building that is adjacent to the historic hall. This new building also houses TD Music Hall (opened Feb 2023), a new community theatre (opening soon!) plus, other spaces for music creation and education – all collectively known as Allied Music Centre. It is here where Deane’s memory and legacy will be honoured.
