Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Allentown studio?

On Location, Or Remote.

Welcome to your best opportunity to break into the music industry in Allentown, New Jersey. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the audio engineering school alternative that gets you in the door of a real Allentown recording studio, where you will work as an extern while training with a real producer/engineer for a career in your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Allentown, NJ, your best bet for launching a career as a music producer or audio engineer is to extern in a real recording studio—and that’s where we place you, from day one.

Why spend up to 50 thousand dollars (and sometimes more) to learn audio engineering in some classroom, when you can get trained more effectively in a real recording studio for far less money? Play it smart: learn on-the-job directly from the pros, and make important industry connections while you get your education. No one trains you for a music industry career more effectively or affordably than our music production school alternative.

Don’t underestimate the small borough of Allentown, NJ. While home to just under 2000 people, it’s one of the most centrally located towns you could hope for when it comes to breaking into a music industry career. Situated just 20 minutes east of Trenton, this community known for its antique shops and quaint restaurants is actually within an hour’s drive of two of the world’s biggest music industry hubs—namely, New York City and Philadelphia. This gives Allentown the unique advantage of maintaining its historic, small-town vibe while offering convenience to two of the biggest music scenes on the planet. It’s like living with the best of three worlds.

What does this mean for you? Simply put, if you want to establish yourself in a career as a music producer or audio engineer, but you prefer the quietness of the small town to the chaos of the big city, you couldn’t ask for a better location than Allentown, NJ—and by training you in a real recording studio, the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you closer to the action than any ordinary audio school can.

Our advantage is our mentor-extern training approach. We don’t believe in classrooms because audio engineering is a hands-on art form—so instead, we place you as a working extern in a real recording studio in the Allentown area, where you’ll be trained one-on-one by a seasoned working audio professional. Not only does this approach help you learn the ropes more accurately, quickly and effectively, but it also puts you in contact with lots of other industry professionals who can one day hire you. Our results speak for themselves: many of our graduates go on to work in the music industry! You owe it to yourself to find out what our Allentown Audio Engineering School alternative can do for your career.

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!
