Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. 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.

Your Memphis, Tennessee
Recording School Alternative
Your MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE
While the RECORDING CONNECTION isn’t the only choice among Memphis Recording Schools, we are the only school that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) in an actual Memphis recording studio, working directly with the pros while you learn mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Memphis is to start inside a Memphis recording studio as an apprentice (extern). We’re the school that helps get your foot in the door.
Why pay upwards of 20-50 thousand dollars to go to recording school at a college or trade school, when for a fraction of that amount you could go to recording school in a real recording studio? Make the smart move–get on the inside track, and get your education in a real-world environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available today.
Located on the western edge of Tennessee along the banks of the Mississippi River, Memphis hosts a greater metro area of over 1.2 million people. Home to an active and vibrant music scene, Memphis’ contribution to the music industry cannot be overstated, being widely accepted as the birthplace both of the blues and rock & roll. Sun Records (where Elvis and Johnny Cash both got their start) still stands at 706 Union Avenue, and live Memphis blues can still be heard nightly in the venues along historic Beale Street. Not limited to blues and rock, the Memphis scene has contributed to a wide range of genres; rockabilly, gospel, country, western swing, punk, hip-hop, and R&B all have a presence here. Famous musicians with ties to Memphis (besides Johnny Cash and Elvis) include B.B. King, Al Green, Justin Timberlake, Ike Turner and a host of others.
Today, the Memphis music scene continues to be strong and active, with plenty of venues and recording studios to accommodate bands and artists. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Memphis holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.
The distinct advantage the RECORDING CONNECTION has over other recording schools is our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. Forget the sterile classroom environment–you won't find it in our program. Instead, we put you where the real action is, in a real Memphis recording studio, to be trained one-on-one by a working industry pro during real recording projects. Over 70% of our graduates go on to permanent work in the recording industry, usually through connections they made while studying with us. You could be next! Enroll in our Memphis Recording School today, and let us get you started on the path toward your dreams.
We get our students jobs.
Of Our Graduates Get
Jobs in the Music Business
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.read our student success stories
