Recording School Alternative
The Honolulu Recording Connection
A world-class recording school in Honolulu? Believe it! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Honolulu Recording School that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Honolulu recording studio, where you will learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trance, trip hop, house music, acid house and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Honolulu, the best way to launch a career in audio engineering and music production is to apprentice (extern) inside a Honolulu recording studio–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION comes in.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars (plus relocation expenses) to go to a recording program at a college or trade school stateside, when you can go to recording school in a real recording studio in Honolulu. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get your education in a real-world environment. Our audio RECORDING SCHOOL is the smartest, most cost efficient way to get started in an audio career.
Located on the southeast side of Oahu, Honolulu is Hawaii’s state capital and largest city. Millions of vacationers are drawn to this island paradise every year to enjoy the weather, the scenery, the culture and the surf. Honolulu also is home to an active, vibrant music scene, not only featuring the traditional Hawaiian folk styles most associated with the islands, but also modern genres such as jazz, rock and hip-hop. Bands both local and national frequent Honolulu’s venues large and small–venues such as the famed Waikiki Shell and the ever-popular Pipeline Cafe. You can find live music somewhere in Honolulu virtually any night of the week.
To accommodate this plethora of musical activity and the needs of the music community, numerous quality recording studios make their home in the Honolulu area.
