Situated in southern British Columbia about 75 km outside Vancouver, the city of Abbotsford is home to roughly 125,000 people. Although not a town most people readily associate with the music business in general, Abbotsford hosts an active music scene, with bands and artists from a variety of genres performing in venues around town. While larger touring acts make regular stops at venues such as the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, smaller acts can regularly be heard in more intimate venues such as the Clayburn Gourmet Gallery. Notable musicians and bands with ties to Abbotsford include Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, country artist Karen-Lee Batten, post-hardcore vocalist Jonny Craig (frontman for Dance Gavin Dance), worship leader Brian Doerksen, and pop-punk band Faber Drive.

Keeping step with the ongoing needs of the Abbotsford music community, a number of recording studios make their home here. Additionally, Abbotsford provides easy access to the very busy and diverse music scene of Vancouver about an hour away. If youÕre aspiring to be a music producer, audio engineer or sound designer, but prefer the small town atmosphere to the craziness of the big city, Abbotsford offers you access to the best of both worlds.

Because of our many industry relationships forged over nearly 30 years, RECORDING CONNECTION can put you close to the action in ways other audio engineering schools canÕt duplicate. Through our revolutionary mentor-extern approach, we bypass the stale classroom completely, placing you directly inside a real recording studio to be trained one-on-one by a working, experienced audio professional. As you gain hands-on experience with real recording projects, youÕll also make lots of connections within the music industry itself, giving you insider access to job openings before other audio students even know about them. No other audio school on the planet can offer you this kind of opportunity. Enroll in our Abbotsford Audio Engineering School today, and discover why many of our students get hired.

How are we different than other professional audio engineering schools?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio.Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your hands-on learn-by-doing experience starts here!
