Information about renting musician rehearsal rooms?



I recently heard that there are places in Busan that have music rehearsal rooms for rent and already have equipment such as amps and drum kits available inside.

However, I have no idea exactly where these places are. I've heard there's at least one in Bujeon-dong, but not sure and don't have specifics.

Does anyone have information on how to find these places? I would really appreciate it.



Guitar lessons?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for private English guitar lessons in the Jangsan area or relatively close by. (Haeundae is fine, maybe KSU in a pinch.) I'd prefer something in the morning ending before 12:30 or 1pm. Do you know of any leads?

Ska or Punk Music venues/shows in Busan??

I'm wondering what the Ska and/or punk music scene is like here in Busan. I'm looking to catch some shows, or play some music with some folks here in town. Any nice jam sessions going on around here? Sure hope so. Any info would be huge.
