Careers in Pop Music Start Here

Pop Music

Pop recording artists such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Pink, Duran Duran, Mariah Carey, Leona Lewis, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, and George Michael have captivated millions with their music.

So, you want to be famous…you have the looks, the moves, the sex appeal and the voice. Today, all those things are not enough. Did you know that even Madonna and Britney Spears know how to use Pro Tools? Do you?

The fact is, if you're an aspiring pop singer or musician, or in a pop group, or want to be a music producer like Timbaland or Jelliebean Benitez, you need to know the ins and outs of a real recording studio in order to have any hope of success.

The Recording Connection Audio Institute offers you one-on-one instruction in some of the most celebrated pop recording studios in the world. If accepted into our apprenticeship (externship) program, you could be learning the recording arts inside the studios where some of your favorite records have been produced. You won't have to relocate in order to attend our course, because we have thousands of major recording professionals acting as Recording Connection mentors all over the world. Your mentor will teach you everything you need to know to get the sound you are trying for and how to capture that sound with proper recording and mix-down techniques. You’ll learn Pro Tools, Reason, Logic, and other software. You’ll even get the full version of Pro Tools, at no additional charge. Visit our complete curriculum page to see everything you will be studying; everything you need is included in one low tuition rate.

Since we began offering our Recording Connection program in 1983, we've been constantly refining our curriculum to reflect both the current tastes in music and the ever-changing technology so critical to this business. Our Pop and R&B Production Program works because it puts you in a real recording studio, where you gain hands-on experience with the latest technology in real-world situations. Best of all, you will be trained by an experienced, working professional in the music recording business, someone who really KNOWS the business. As you put in the time at the studio, you’ll make many connections with other music professionals who are in the studio working on their own projects. Thus, not only will you gain hands-on experience and practical working knowledge while you take our course, but you’ll also be in a prime position to start a career in music upon graduation.
