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.

If you’re looking for a great New Haven AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL, you’ve just found the most innovative solution available anywhere: the RECORDING CONNECTION! We’re the only AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL that gets you hooked up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual New Haven recording studio where you’ll learn your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trance, trip hop, house music, acid house and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. Hands down, the smartest way to enter the recording industry in New Haven is to start inside a New Haven recording studio as an apprentice–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION comes in.
It can easily cost upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL at a college or trade school, but for a fraction of that amount you could go to AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL in a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Play it smart, get on the inside track and get your education in a real-world environment. Our audio recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.
Located in southern Connecticut along the north shore of Long Island Sound, New Haven, Connecticut is home to Yale University, which understandably is one of the town’s primary economic factors. The presence of the university also feeds into a vibrant underground music scene, in addition to the jazz and classical elements present in the area. Notable musicians with ties to New Haven represent a variety of genres, and include jazz musicians Brooks Kerr and Joe Morris, blue-eyed soul singer Michael Bolton, pop/rock artist Liz Phair, Indigo Girls bandmate Emily Saliers, and legendary pop duo The Carpenters, to name a few. Among the more notable live music venues in New Haven is Toad’s Place, where The Rolling Stones once showed up for a surprise concert.
A number of area recording studios make their home in New Haven, accommodating the needs of the diverse music scene here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, New Haven holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.

Success Stories from Students Near New Haven, CT
Get inspired by the your mentors recording artists.
"Today was my first official session with my mentor. When I arrived, my mentor and I went over the reading lesson…He did not just say what I needed to understand, rather, my mentor would bring me over to something related to the topic and then show me. So, needless to say, it was a great way for audio and visual learning. After going over the lesson reading, an artist came in to the studio. I was able to spend a lot of time with this artist and speak about her direction and what she had done in the music industry. I had a blast, and it was so fun to be able to relate to someone who had such a passion because, after all, that is how I feel myself."
