LEARN AS AN EXTERN (OR FROM HOME).
How are we different? Recording Connection doesn’t send you into a classroom. We connect you directly with a successful audio professional inside of a working recording studio. Whether you train in-person as an extern, or choose to learn via remote one-on-one lessons with a pro, with us you’re learning the real day-to-day techniques, secrets, tricks and shortcuts used by today’s industry pros. With most schools you study in a classroom and get taught by a teacher, not a working pro. With the Recording Connection you train with a pro who’s in the business now. Advantage: Recording Connection.
LEARN HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MUSIC.
We understand: you want to be a working artist in the music business. We have workshops and programs in producing, recording, and distributing music.

Advantage: Recording Connection
LEARN THE GEAR AND SOFTWARE.
In today’s music industry, you need to know what the gear and software does and how to use it. That means you need to know DAWS like Pro Tools, Ableton, Reason, Logic, Native Instruments and more. One great way to learn to use these tools is through one-on-one instructional training lessons. That’s the Recording Connection way. No competing with a bunch of other students to learn what you need to know. With the Recording Connection, you have a private mentor and a team of private tutors. Advantage: Recording Connection.
ATTEND CLASS INSIDE REAL RECORDING STUDIOS.
*For students of the in-studio, blended education programs. A lot of audio engineering schools and music production schools talk about hands-on learning. However, we don't believe touching the board in a college lab provides enough real-world experience. That's why our students learn in real recording studios, where real music is recorded for real albums by real artists. This is where we put you so you can gain real experience by studying in a real-world environment with real client pressures and demands. True hands-on learning and on-the-job experience. Advantage: Recording Connection.
ONE ON ONE LEARNING.
Rather than placing you in a crowded classroom with other students where you might have to compete for lab time and attention from your teacher, the Recording Connection hooks you up as an extern with a mentor (professional audio engineer, music producer or sound technician) in a real recording studio where it's just you and your mentor. In other words, you receive quality face time, each and every week. Of course, sometimes you and your mentor will be dealing with clients while you sit in on sessions but truth be told, that's a good thing. With us, you are always number one, and the only student in the class. Advantage: Recording Connection.
MANY OF OUR MENTORS HAVE GOLD RECORDS.
Imagine learning to be an audio engineer or music producer from the guy who produced U2, or Michael Jackson, or Prince, or Pearl Jam, or 50 Cent, or… With the Recording Connection, many of our instructors (mentors) are world-class music producers and audio engineers who maybe even work with some of your favorite bands, and who even have Gold records and Grammy Awards. In the music industry, a Gold record or hitting Platinum speaks volumes to industry people. Learn from seasoned industry pros with real accolades. Advantage: Recording Connection.
RECOMMENDED BY THE PROS.
There’s a simple reason why so many professional audio engineers, music producers and performers recommend The Recording Connection: they know our program works. It’s not rocket science: if you want to work in the business, you need to build connections with people in the music business. The Recording Connection offers you the opportunity to learn and do just that. You get to spend time training and building relationships in a recording studio while you learn from a professional audio engineer or music producer. Genuine endorsements from some of the biggest names in the business. Advantage: Recording Connection.
FROM DAY ONE, YOU'RE ON THE INSIDE.
Being on the inside is one of the biggest advantages the Recording Connection provides. Why? Because when you are on the “inside,” you can make connections. Because the “inside” is where jobs first become available. Because being on the “inside” means you learn how the music business really works. Classroom learning is great in theory, but if all you’ve ever done is sit in a classroom or practice in a simulated on-campus recording studio lab, then you won't necessarily have the connections you need. Whether you’re connecting in-person or via remote one-on-one lessons, with us you’re connecting with those on the inside. Audio school graduates can find themselves on the outside looking in. With us, you’re on the inside from day one. Advantage: Recording Connection.
With the Recording Connection, everything is included. All your books, your own copy of the latest version of Pro Tools, and private tutoring are all included. This means if you have a burning question regarding your current lessons, technical issues or how to achieve the sound you are looking for, you don’t have to wait for your next class in the studio to get the answer. You can contact Student Services and schedule a private tutoring session. Use it to improve yourself, get the sound you’re looking for, or to impress your mentor with how much you’ve learned since your last session with him or her. Private tutoring. Advantage: Recording Connection.
We’re called the Recording Connection for a reason. Since the beginning, we’ve always known that offering our students the opportunity to make industry connections means a lot. Why? Because music industry connections often play an important role in getting work as a producer or engineer. Without connections, you're just another faceless job applicant. As you progress through our audio program, you could get the chance to meet, network and connect with music producers, executives and clients nearly every time you go to class (in your mentor’s recording studio). Connections are the primary reason our job placement and assistance is so successful. Real world music industry connections. Big Advantage: Recording Connection.
WE BUILD ENTREPRENEURS.
The music business is constantly changing. What was “in” yesterday is “out” today. We believe that developing entrepreneurial skills is a key component of making a living in the music business for years to come. If you just want to show up for work at some job, you will always be subject to the whims of a capricious business or employer. Our mentor-extern method of education places each student in a private externship with an independent working industry professional who is by definition an entrepreneur, so you get to see and experience what it takes to forge your own success in an exciting field. It’s one of the reasons many of our students and graduates do so well out in the real world. Learn to forge your own success in a changing industry. Advantage: Recording Connection.
