Recording Connection
Audio School


Your AKRON, OHIO MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL

If you're looking for a great Akron Audio Engineering School, look no further! We're RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you inside an actual Akron recording studio, working as an audio student apprentice (extern) while you learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Akron, Ohio, the best way to get started in a career in audio is by apprenticing in one of Akron's recording studios. We're the school that gets your foot in the door. 

Time to face facts: it can cost anywhere from 20-50 thousand dollars to go to an audio engineering trade school, and sometimes even more. By contrast, with our revolutionary program, you can go to audio engineering school in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount. The choice is clear! Play it smart, get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world environment.  Our audio engineering school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

Located in northeastern Ohio, the city of Akron is home to about 207,000 people. Although not normally a city people readily associate with the music business, Akron actually has a vibrant and influential music scene, having particularly made a mark in the rock, punk and indie-rock genres. Akron has either produced or been home to such noteworthy musicians and bands as Devo, Warrant, heavy metal singer Tim 'Ripper' Owens (Judas Priest, Beyond Fear), Rachel Sweet, The Black Keys, and Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, just to name a few.

Today, Akron's music scene continues to be active, with a number of venues and recording studios hosting local and touring bands and artists. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Akron holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.    

The distinct advantage RECORDING CONNECTION has over other audio engineering schools is our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. Forget the sterile classroom environment--you won't need it with our program. Instead, we place you in a real recording studio to be trained one-on-one with a working industry professional, thus getting you close to the action in ways other schools can't. In fact, over 70% of our graduates find jobs in the recording industry, usually through connections they made during their time in our program. You owe it to yourself to see what our Akron Audio Engineering School can do for your career.
