Your New York, New York
Recording School Alternative

Your NEW YORK RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

While there is more than one New York Recording School location from which to choose, only the RECORDING CONNECTION gets you inside an actual New York City recording studio, where you will work as an audio student apprentice (extern) and learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trip hop, techno, house, trance and more), post production audio and electronic DJ. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in New York, NY is by apprenticing inside a New York recording studio.  We’re the school that gets your foot inside the door, like no other audio school can.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars or more to go to a typical recording trade school or college program, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to recording school in a real recording studio. Play it smart, get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world learning environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

As the largest city in the United States, New York, New York has had a profound influence on the music industry over the years–a trend that continues today. Nearly every genre imaginable can be heard in venues large and small all over the city, including jazz, hip-hop, rap, rock, blues, disco, Salsa, folk, punk, metal and many others. The list of notable bands and musicians coming from New York is quite long, with such names as Bob Dylan, Mariah Carey, P. Diddy, George and Ira Gershwin, The Strokes, They Might Be Giants, The Velvet Underground, Vampire Weekend, Carly Simon and Luther Vandross barely scratching the surface of the list.

New York is also home to numerous world-class recording studios, accommodating the needs of local and national acts in the area. Whether your interest is in audio production, recording, mixing or mastering, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities in New York, and the RECORDING CONNECTION can put you in the center of the action in ways other recording schools can’t.

Our distinct advantage is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we bypass the traditional classroom environment by placing you with a working professional in the recording industry for one-on-one instruction.  As you gain valuable hands-on experience during real recording projects, you'll also make plenty of vital industry connections that typically lead to future work. Thanks to our revolutionary system, over 70% of our graduates find jobs in the industry, sometimes even before graduating our program. You could be next! Enroll in our New York Recording School today, and let us put you on the path to your career in the recording industry.
