So you want to be a famous music producer or audio engineer?

Well it all starts with whom you choose to learn from.

The Recording Connection is the school that contracts famous music producers and audio engineers to teach our students. Yes, you read that correctly. Our teachers are not classroom instructors: they are teachers who are also making the music the world listens to. Yes, the engineers and producers for Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Kanye, Mumford & Sons, Arctic Monkeys, Eminem, Dave Matthews, Kendrick Lamar, and Lady Gaga teach for us. So does Dr. Dre’s beat maker, and so does Snoop Dogg’s engineer. Oh, and did we mention that we are the only recording and music producing school that can say that we have Aerosmith’s engineer working for us as a teacher? U2′s mixer? Yep, he teaches for us, too. Ozzy’s guy? Yep. Michael Jackson’s guy? Yep. Taylor Swift? Yep. Led Zeppelin? Yes. Black Eyes Peas, Ludacris… Yes, yes, yes—their producers and engineers all teach for us, too.

THE RECORDING CONNECTION TEACHERS have engineered, mixed or produced the the artists below. Please note: no other school on the planet can say what we can say about our teachers. These are hands down the best in the business—the men and women who are making all the music that you are listening to, that the world listens to. AND THESE ARE YOUR TEACHERS. Now be honest: can you afford NOT to learn from these Grammy Award winning, Gold-Record-having, legends of the music recording and producing business? Or would you rather spend 10x as much money to go to a trade school and learn from some instructor who has never worked with artists like these?
 

Learn audio engineering and music production, hip hop, electronic music production, or DJing from the industry pros that make music for these legends:


 

The truth is, learning the art of music recording and music producing is not like learning math and science. Audio recording is both creative and technical, and so, it requires a whole different approach to learning. That's where we come in. We are the school that has taken a sledgehammer to the irrelevant way of learning taught in most trade schools and universities. We don't believe in classrooms, we believe in learning in real recording studios. We don't believe in professors, we believe in learning from professional audio engineers. Why? Because it is the best way to learn audio engineering and music producing, of course.

As a creative person, you need someone who can give you one on one attention and hands on learning; someone who can also show you the ropes and help you on your career path; someone who can connect you: a mentor. You need a mentor in a real recording studio who has worked with some of the biggest bands in the world, and who is ready, right now, to be your private teacher.

No other school on the planet offers you the opportunity to learn from a major audio engineer or music producer in just about every city in the world. Further, not only are you learning from these master mentors in their recording studios, but you are learning from them one on one in private sessions, tailor made to your musical tastes, dreams, and desires.

Learn how these apprentices became success stories:

“In addition to helping with some of Jesse’s (my mentor’s) local clients, I took the knowledge that I was gaining in the course at the time as well as the knowledge I have now to go on and produce remixes with J. Scott G. for the artists Celldweller (our remix was later featured in an episode of How I Met Your Mother) and Shiny Toy Guns. I also produced a remix for The Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Remix Contest which was voted #1 by users, as well as a remix for the Halo 4 Soundtrack Remix Contest which was also voted #1. The extent of my training didn’t end when I wasn’t physically in the studio; I was constantly working outside of the studio as well.”

“One day on christmas eve while I was just getting my shopping started, I got a phone call from my mentor (Vidal Davis) saying I need you. He need me to come over to the studio and work with Dj Drama on the Fabolous project Death Comes In 3’s that came out on christmas day. With no hesitation I told him I would be there shortly. I was used to putting in late hours and not sleeping until 8 am the next day, but I never really knew how much time and effort goes into a full project. But I loved every second of it and working on that project established a good relationship between myself and Dj Drama. He later call me to help assist him on Meek Mill project DreamChasers.”

“I can’t express how much I’ve learned since I started. Even my bandmates have marveled at how I was able to transform their flat-sounding recordings into something dynamic. Compression and EQ I now consider my strengths as far as mixing and mastering are concerned.”

“It is a very fast paced lifestyle. There is always something going on and so many constant opportunities. I enjoy helping others and try to discover what each client’s purpose and expectations are.”

“As an artist I am always trying to get the best recordings and best possible sound that I can, and to do so I knew that I needed to expand and widen my engineering background to give me a better understanding of how to efficiently piece together and properly mix/master a song.”

“A studio is like a little family. I bonded with everyone at (my mentor studio) and there was never a dull moment. I took pride in the time I spent there.”

“No complaints at all. I’m learning so much; and even helped my mentor build sound diffusion panels for his studio!”
