Learning on-the-job definitely has its advantages—for example, the opportunity to have a seasoned industry veteran help you produce your own music! Ayaz Ismail of Dallas, TX experienced this firsthand when his mentor, music industry veteran Rick Rooney at Planet Dallas, worked with Ismail to help record and release his own full-length Bollywood-style album!
Titled Is This Love, Ismail's album features songs sung in Hindi, which have been in regular rotation in Ismail's home country of India. “This album is very special to me as the journey and experience was amazing," says Ismail. "I worked with some great musicians, a mixing and mastering engineer from India who mixes for Bollywood films, Grammy winners, and a well-known Bollywood singer.”

Your Dallas, Texas Recording School Alternative
The Dallas Recording Connection Audio School
While there is more than one Dallas Recording School from which to choose, only the RECORDING CONNECTION gets you inside an actual Dallas recording studio, working as an audio student apprentice (extern) while you learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), club DJ and post production audio. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Dallas, TX is to start inside a Dallas recording studio as an apprentice (extern). We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.
While the typical recording program at a college or recording trade school can cost anywhere between 20-50 thousand dollars, with our program you can go to recording school in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount. The choice is clear! Play it smart–get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.
Dallas is Texas’ third-largest city, home to about 1.3 million people and part of a greater metro area of over 6 million. The music scene in Dallas is rich, active and diverse, with many bands and artists playing at venues large and small throughout the city. One of the city’s musical areas, the historic Deep Ellum district, was at one time a blues hotbed rivaling Memphis’ Beale Street; today, Deep Ellum’s legacy continues as a hotspot for progressive music styles. Among the many notable musicians with ties to the Dallas area are Stevie Ray Vaughn, Norah Jones, LeAnn Rimes, Vanilla Ice, Erykah Badu and St. Vincent, to name a few.
Dallas is also home to numerous quality recording studios which accommodate the ongoing needs of the city’s music scene. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Dallas holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.
Our advantage over other recording schools is our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. We get you close to the action in ways other schools can't, bypassing the sterile classroom environment completely, and pairing you with a working industry professional who instructs you one-on-one during actual recording projects. Over 70% of our graduates go on to permanent jobs in the recording industry, usually through connections they made in our program. You could be next! Enroll in our Dallas Recording School today, and let us get you started on the path to a rewarding career.
Our outstanding job placement rate is no accident. We are able to achieve this high mark because our graduates have trained inside a working recording studio—this gives our students excellent hands-on skills, real-world job experience, and the industry connections and references that just aren’t available on a school campus. Additionally, we have a very pro-active Stay Connected Job Assistance Program that serves as our graduates’ advocate in the job market for up to a year after course completion. When we say we’re connected with the music business, we mean it.

Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.
