What should I know about buying studio time for my 10 yr old daughter?

User Rating: / 0
My 10 year old daughter loves to sing and has taken voice lessons in the past. For Christmas, I am considering buying her time in a recording studio. I know nothing about the process or the people and want to be respectful of the studio as well as create a terrific experience for my daughter. So what do I need to consider? We live in Chicago, so access to any number of top level studios is at least a possibility. I'm less concerned with the product than the experience my daughter has, but would still like to have her be able to take something away to remember it by.
Some specific questions:
1)She will want to sing other people's songs. Is this an issue with copyright for the studio? We obviously won't be selling these, its just for fun.
2)What do I need to ask for from the studio? Assume we are bringing nothing.
3)Will recording studios feel silly working with a mature but still 10 year old girl?
4)Our budget looks to be available to cover 2-3 hours. What should we be able to expect in 2-3 hours? 1 song? 2-3 songs?
5)How can you envision this process working?
6)Is this a terrible idea? How can I make it happen?
