We Offer the Best Way into the Music Industry

Why We Feel We Offer What Traditional Schools Can’t

Recording Connection’s programs are designed to get students into a career as soon as possible without cutting corners on their education. How do we do this? By offering what other educational institutions can’t: accelerated curricula, a fully immersive learning environment, and industry connections from day one.

Our music industry programs are each six to nine months long and place you in the middle of a real working recording studio with an industry professional. Your mentor will show you how music gets made in today‘s world, using the gear that’s used by the top artists, engineers, and producers on the planet.

Work Side by Side with an Industry Insider

Teachers Talk at You, Mentors Work With You

Recording Connection mentors are recording and industry pros, Grammy award-winning engineers and producers, and touring DJs who have played music festivals around the world. Our mentors prepare students for work in the recording field, including music, film, TV, video, and other mediums through hands-on experience.

The music industry’s major players are ready to pass on their knowledge to the next generation of music makers. Our mentors have worked on both sides of the glass, built studios from the ground up, and work with some of the biggest names in the biz. This just can’t be replicated in a classroom, online tutorials, or hours of YouTube videos.

Music Industry Programs for All

Offering Courses That Cover All Corners of Music

Whether you are looking for a job in the industry, want to improve the sound of your own group, or even start your own recording studio, Recording Connection has the program for you. Most of our courses require no prerequisites or experience.

Our Audio Engineering and Music Production programs are ideal for learning how to make other bands and artists sound their best. The Live Music and Live DJ Programs prepare you for a career in front of massive audiences, and the Music Business Program covers how to operate a studio, get clients, start a record label, or find work in one of music’s many branches.

Improving Access to Music Industry Careers

Why Uproot Your Life or Go into Debt?

Recording Connection Music Industry Programs cost a fraction of the tuition of standard four-year universities, colleges, or trade schools. With more than 300 locations throughout the U.S., chances are you’re not too far from a studio of your choice to train in. You no longer have to move to Los Angeles or New York to learn the industry.

But we also understand you still have a life to live while working towards a career in music. For some, getting to the studio multiple times a week isn’t an option. Our remote-learning opportunities give you the same education, the same experience, and the same foundation–just not in the same room.

Recording Connection Music Industry Programs

Many of our programs offer the same access and features mentioned above, as well as a few options that make our educational process that much better. We just feel our environment, flexibility, and real-world connections can’t be reproduced anywhere else.

  • 1-on-1 in-person learning from a working audio professional
