How do I join?

ORIENTATION: New members pay a one-time orientation fee of $50 to join Third World Records Inc. We'll spend about an hour training you on studio basics – how to check in and out, how to get along with other members, and the technical basics of how to record, rehearse and perform at Third World Studios. At the end of orientation you get a studio key (if your plan includes one) and full access to the studio calendar for scheduling time.


PAYMENT: You'll need to provide a debit/credit card for your monthly membership dues. Studio membership works a lot like a gym membership – it renews every month, and we run your card on file at that time.


PICK YOUR PLAN: If you're ready, select your plan from the list above. You can pay your orientation fee right now using the credit card you want to use for membership payments. We'll contact you right away to set up your studio orientation.

If you'd rather join by phone, call 302-981-5667 to tell us what plan you'd like and schedule your orientation.
