Your Reno, Nevada
Recording School Alternative
Your RENO, NEVADA MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL
Looking for a great Reno Audio Engineering School? Look no further than the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you working inside an actual Reno recording studio as an audio student apprentice (extern), learning directly from the pros as you study audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Reno, Nevada, the smartest way to launch a career in audio is by apprenticing inside one of Reno’s recording studios. That’s where we come in.
You could spend upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to a conventional audio engineering trade school, or you could spend a fraction of that amount and go to audio engineering school in a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Be smart, learn from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available.
Reno, Nevada is located on the western edge of the state near the California border, home to around 200,000 people. Perhaps best known as a smaller, quieter version of Las Vegas, Reno has an active music scene, with local and touring acts regularly making appearances in a variety of venues. While the music scene in Reno is diverse, with genres ranging from folk to synth-pop to hip-hop, Reno has gained a reputation for its own brand of punk called Skeeno, spearheaded by bands such as 7 Seconds.
Numerous live venues and recording studios make their home in Reno to accommodate the ongoing musical activity here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Reno holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.
With our many professional connections and relationships forged over the years, the RECORDING CONNECTION is in a unique position to help fulfill your dreams of a career in the recording industry. Our secret is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we pair you with a working industry professional who trains you one-on-one during real recording projects, getting you close to the action in ways unmatched by other audio engineering schools. Most of our graduates–over 70% of them, in fact–go on to permanent industry positions, usually through the connections they made while going through our program. You could be next!
