A Basic Overview of the Recording Connection Audio Recording and Music Producing School Alternative

Overview

No Experience Required

The Recording Connection Audio Institute’s acceptance standards are very high. The very nature of the in-studio training process requires that students be selected based on employment viability standards, rather than school admissions standards. The truth is, most audio schools accept anyone with a credit card or financial aid handout from the government. The Recording Connection Audio Institute does not work this way. All applicants must first go to a free, open house interview with their prospective mentor in the recording studio where the student is to be trained. If you are accepted by the mentor and the Recording Connection, only then will you be allowed to train as a Recording Connection student apprentice (extern).


In short, we’re looking for people who are hardworking, reliable, passionate, and motivated. No previous music or recording experience is required. You will be trained to become a recording engineer and/or a music producer.

PLEASE NOTE: All applicants will be prepared for their open house interview by the Recording Connection’s trained admissions staff prior to their appointment.

What Does It Cost?

For our Audio Program, $9800 if paid in full, or $10800 if you choose to finance.
Our Advanced Audio Program tuition rate is $9800.
