Your Recording School Alternative
Why the Recording Connection Is Better
While ours is not the only Phoenix Recording School from which to choose, the RECORDING CONNECTION is the only one that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Phoenix recording studio, working alongside the pros while you learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (electronica, dub fusion, acid house, jungle and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. The smartest way by far to break into the recording industry in Phoenix is to start inside a Phoenix recording studio as an apprentice–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION comes in.
Why would you spend upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to a recording trade school, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to recording school in a real recording studio? Make the smart choice–get your education on the inside track, making vital industry contacts as you do. Our audio recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program available today.
Home to a greater metro population of over 4 million people, Phoenix, Arizona remains one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, having virtually doubled in population over the last 40 years. In step with this growth, Phoenix has also been a major player in the music scene, particularly in the rock and country arenas. Notable musical artists and bands that have ties to Phoenix include Alice Cooper, Stevie Nicks, Jimmy Eat World, Gin Blossoms, 80s rock band Mr. Mister, and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, just to name a few.
Today, the music scene of Phoenix 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, there’s plenty of activity in Phoenix to keep you busy.
The RECORDING CONNECTION can put you close to the action in ways other recording schools can’t. We do this through our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we pair you with a working audio professional who gives you one-on-one instruction on real-life recording projects. Along the way, you’ll make contact with numerous industry professionals who can be helpful in furthering your career. What are you waiting for? Enroll in the Phoenix RECORDING CONNECTION today, and let us help jumpstart your career!
