Your Virginia Beach, Virginia
Recording School Alternative


If you’re looking for a great Virginia Beach Recording School, you’ve just found the most innovative choice available! The RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that gets you inside an actual Virginia Beach recording studio as an audio student apprentice (extern), working alongside the pros as you learn mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), post production audio and electronic DJ. In Virginia Beach, the smartest way to get started in the recording industry is by apprenticing in a Virginia Beach recording studio. We’re the ones who can get your foot in the door.

While typical recording trade schools or college degree programs can cost 20-50 thousand dollars or more, our program costs a fraction of that amount–and you get your recording education in a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available.

Located where the Chesapeake Bay opens into the Atlantic Ocean, the city of Virginia Beach, Virginia hosts a population of over 400,000 people. A popular coastal resort area, Virginia Beach has an active music scene, with local and touring acts performing in a variety of styles in numerous live venues around the area. Virginia Beach is also part of the greater Hampton Roads area, a metropolis encompassing numerous cities and over 1.6 million people, and participates in the larger metro music scene as well, sharing talent up and down the shoreline of the bay. Notable musicians and bands with ties to Virginia Beach and the surrounding area include country singer Juice Newton, saxophonist Ernie Watts, hip-hop artist Missy Elliot, and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, to name a few.

To accommodate the ongoing activity in the music scene, a number of recording studios make their home in the Virginia Beach area. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities here.

Our distinct advantage over other recording schools is our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach.  Forget the sterile classroom environment–you won't need it with the RECORDING CONNECTION.

As you gain valuable hands-on experience with real recording projects, you'll make important industry contacts, which are usually a great help with job placement. Over 70% of our graduates land permanent jobs in the recording industry, and you could be next! Enroll in our Virginia Beach Recording school today, and let us get you started right away.

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.
