Why our music producing program works
Imagine how awesome it would be to have a career doing something you love. Think about what your life would be like if the recording studio were your office.
Music producing is an essential component of the recording session. The music producer helps shape the sound, enabling the artist to get the recording they are aiming for. The music producer is part technician, part musician, and part creative force.
Music producing is pressure-filled, hardcore, and intense– but, if you achieve success, it can be one of the most exciting ways to satisfy your creativity and make a serious living.
From day one, our structured music production course curriculum puts you inside a real recording studio under the direct tutelage of a professional music producer. You will go into the studio anywhere between 2-7 times per week, depending on your schedule (yes we can work around your needs).
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people apply to audio schools worldwide in the hopes of breaking into the highly competitive music business as a music producer. But, this is the 21st century, not the 1970s. There are more students than ever, and not enough music producing jobs to go around.
Each year, a handful of new music producers actually break in to the music business and forge a career as a producer. And guess who these people are? They are the ones who have been educated properly AND who have the connections necessary to advance their dreams.

Why are connections so important? Think for a moment: If you were a big-time record executive and you had a hot new band for whom you needed a producer, would you hire a kid out of an audio trade school, or would you hire a young music producer whom your friends were telling you had the talent, creativity, and the hard work ethic to make the best record possible?
You see, the dirty little secret of the music industry is this:
No amount of classroom instruction will open the doors you need to make it. The ONLY way to make it in the music business as a music producer is to work your way up the ranks of a professional recording studio, where you can gain experience and make connections. This is exactly where the Recording Connection Audio Institute puts you from day one.
But it's not all about connections; it's also about what you know.
