Careers in Alternative Rock Start Here

Alternative Rock

Recording artists and bands such as The White Stripes, Radiohead, Coldplay, Nirvana, The National, Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Cold War Kids, Portishead, Jack Johnson, She Wants Revenge, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Santogold and more have transformed their rock 'n roll roots and reinvented the alternative rock genre.  

Whether you're an alternative or punk musician in a band, or whether you want to be a music producer like Steve Alibini, Tim Palmer, Dave Jerden, Brian Calstrom, Warren Huart or Rick Rubin, one thing is for certain: you need to know the ins and outs of a real recording studio. With the Recording Connection, you will learn the smart way, the fast way, and the right way: by one-on-one tutoring from a professional recording engineer or music producer who is connected with major players in the alternative music genre.  Best of all, you won't have to relocate, because we have thousands of major recording professionals all over the United States and Canada, who are active Recording Connection mentors.  Your mentor will teach you everything you need to know about how to capture that pefect sound you are looking for with proper recording and mix-down techniques.  Along the way, you will learn Avid Pro Tools, alone with other softwares like Reason, Logic, or Ableton. You will even receive your own copy of Pro Tools at no additional charge.

Learn how the music business REALLY works! Visit our Bachelors Equivalent Course Curriculum page to see everything you will be studying hands-on. Everything is included in one low tuition price.

We have been offering our Recording Connection program since 1983, and we're constantly refining our curriculum to reflect both the current tastes in music and changes in technology that frequently occur.  Our program works because it puts you in a real recording studio, giving you hands-on experience with the latest technology in real-world situations.  Best of all, you will be trained by an experienced, working professional who really knows the music recording business, and simply by putting in the time, you will be exposed, on an almost daily basis, to other music professionals who are in the studio working on their own projects.   Thus, while you take our course, you will gain hands-on experience and practical working knowledge while putting yourself in a position to start a career in music upon graduation.  

Think this can't happen?  Neither did Preston Boebel when he first came across our website.  He checked us out, signed up for our recording course, and today he's the chief engineer at Clear Lake Audio in Hollywood, California.  You can check out his success story here, or view an 8 -1/2 minute video that is located to the right.
