Ask Yourself

+ Do you dream of a career as a Music Producer, Pop Songwriter, R&B Producer or Audio Engineer?
+ Do you already know how to write a great hook, and you want to learn how to make that hook shine on a record?
+ Are you already recording your own music at home but want to do it professionally?
+ Do you want to learn the production skills that make the difference between a good pop/R&B record and a great one?
+ Do you have dreams of writing and producing songs that people would sing along to in their cars, or in huge arenas around the world?
+ Do you think you have the chops to be a music industry pro, but you lack the connections to make it happen?
+ Are you serious and focused, willing to work hard and do whatever it takes to make your dreams happen?

Pop and R&B Producers

DO YOU RELATE TO ANY (OR ALL) OF THE DESCRIPTIONS LISTED ABOVE? HAVE WE GOT YOUR ATTENTION?

ARE YOU READY TO DO SOMETHING GREAT WITH YOUR LIFE BY MAKING YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE? DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE AND THE WORK ETHIC TO TRY AND MAKE THE “BIG TIME” AS A RECORDING ARTIST, RECORDING ENGINGEER, OR A POP/R&B PRODUCER? ARE YOU READY TO BECOME THE NEXT RYAN TEDDER, TIMBALAND, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, MIGUEL, PHARRELL, OR MARK RONSON?

ARE YOU SMART ENOUGH TO NOT BE DUPED INTO TAKING ON THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF DEBT BY ATTENDING ONE OF THOSE OVERPRICED AUDIO SCHOOLS THAT DON’T ACTUALLY CONNECT YOU TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

LET’S GET REAL FOR A MOMENT AND TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

If you pick the wrong music producing school to try and become a pop or R&B producer, audio engineer or recording artist, you could actually HURT your career. How? By paying too much, getting deep into debt, and getting very little for your money in return. Every year, the dreams of thousands of promising musicians, artists and producers just like you are crushed because of audio schools who charge crazy amounts of tuition, pressure you to take on crushing student debt, and DON’T connect you to the industry. This problem with student debt is so widespread that even Rolling Stone Magazine reported on it.

Your future career in the pop/R&B music industry depends on you making smart choices, starting by making the right choice about which audio school to attend. Don’t be fooled into spending $25,000 or more on an education that sticks you in a classroom with other music business wannabes with no connection to the industry itself. You can spend a fraction of that money and get trained one-on-one with someone with REAL music industry connections—someone who actually DOES music for a living!

Pop and R&B Producers

DON’T BE FOOLED INTO BELIEVING YOU CAN BECOME A SUCCESSFUL PRODUCER OR ARTIST FROM AN ONLINE PROGRAM, EITHER.

IF YOU’RE GOING TO BECOME A TRUE ARTIST IN THIS BUSINESS, YOU NEED FEEDBACK AND MENTORING FROM REAL INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS, NOT A COOKIE-CUTTER, COMPUTER BASED PROGRAM.

It’s time to start thinking differently about your music industry training. The day of overpriced, overrated classroom trade schools is over. THE DAY OF ON-THE-JOB-APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING PROGRAMS IS NOW.

The Recording Connection Audio School is an on-the-job apprenticeship (externship) program unlike any other, and we can connect you to the music business like no other school can.

The Recording Connection is the school that places you in the heart of the music business instead of an isolated classroom. You read that right—we train you INSIDE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. You will literally be attending class on the job, working alongside the pros.

Are you REALLY serious about rising above the competition and breaking into a successful career in pop or R&B music? If so, then read on…

WHAT IS THE RECORDING CONNECTION, AND WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT IT?

The Recording Connection is where your career as a pop and R&B producer begins. Why? Because we train you in the heart of the action, where the recording engineers and producers actually work.

The Recording Connection is known throughout the music industry as the school that trains you from day one inside an actual recording studio.
Yes. The ONLY ONE.

The Recording Connection is a world renowned apprenticeship (externship) program endorsed by top-tier music producers and audio engineers around the world—producers who have worked with Grammy-winning artists you know and love!

The Recording Connection is your ticket to the music industry. We don’t say that lightly: we have the results to prove it. That’s why the top music industry professionals endorse us.

The Recording Connection program is taught in real recording studios by real producers and engineers. We have HUNDREDS of them partnering with us around the world, including some of the biggest names in the business!

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE FANTASY PROMOTED BY THE OVERPRICED TRADE SCHOOLS. GET CONNECTED TO YOUR DREAMS BY LEARNING INSIDE THE INDUSTRY.

Other schools will charge you HUGE TUITION to train you inside crowded classrooms, rewarding you at the end with a meaningless diploma and no real connections. That approach might have worked at some point, but in the 21st-century music business, it doesn’t work anymore. (Just ask the thousands of audio school graduates who are still knocking on the doors, or who have given up on knocking altogether.)

At The Recording Connection, we take a more practical, modern approach: we train you in a real recording studio, pair you one-on-one with a working professional who serves as your personal mentor—and we charge you A LOT LESS MONEY FOR IT—UP TO 75% LESS than the other schools.

WHY IS THIS BETTER? SIMPLE LOGIC:

HOW MANY HIT RECORDS HAVE CLASSROOM PROGRAMS PRODUCED? ZERO.

HOW MANY HIT RECORDS HAVE REAL RECORDING STUDIOS PRODUCED? ALL OF THEM. ANY QUESTIONS?

Let’s face it: you’re not going to become a successful pop/R&B producer or recording artist by sitting in a college or trade school classroom. Only a fool would believe otherwise. The ONLY place to learn to produce and record pop and R&B music is in a real recording studio where these types of music are being recorded! It’s so simple, yet somehow this logic escapes the trade schools that are trying to get you to pay tens of thousands of dollars to them!

You can attend the Recording Connection for anywhere between 6 months to 2 years, depending on your schedule and where you are at in your career. Beginner, intermediate or advanced—your skill level doesn’t matter. Our one-of-a-kind approach to learning the pop/R&B music industry will work for you at your current level of experience. Just APPLY FOR FREE and talk with one of our Admissions Counselors to learn more. You’ll see that attending the Recording Connection is the smartest choice you can make for your career.

Let’s be honest: when we say that NO OTHER AUDIO SCHOOL COMES CLOSE to what we are offering for the money, we’re not saying it to be boastful. We’re saying it because it’s true. We’re not just trying to get your money; we’re trying to SAVE you time and money by providing you an education that will actually help get you where you want to go. That is EXACTLY why so many of the TOP producers in pop and R&B are endorsing us and teaching for us. They wouldn’t do that if we didn’t have the results to back our claims.

Now you know who we are: now it’s time for us to learn about you. Talk to us—tell us what you want to do in this business. We’re here to help you break into the music industry at the professional level, and we’re the school that actually can do it.

Don’t take our word for it—find out for yourself. Your dream is waiting.
