Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Your Anchorage, Alaska
Recording School Alternative
Your ANCHORAGE, ALASKA RECORDING SCHOOL
A recording school in Anchorage, Alaska? Certainly! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Anchorage Recording School that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Anchorage recording studio, where you will learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Anchorage, there’s no better entry point into the field of recording than apprenticing in an Anchorage recording studio–and that’s where we come in.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars, plus relocation expenses, to go to a recording trade school elsewhere, when for far less money you can go to recording school in a real recording studio in Anchorage. Play it smart–learn directly from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is by far the smartest, most cost efficient program available today.
Anchorage holds the distinction of being Alaska’s largest city, as well as the major city farthest north in the United States. Set along Alaska’s southern coast, Anchorage enjoys a diversity of breathtaking scenery, from coastal views to majestic mountain peaks nearby; yet despite its seemingly remote location, Anchorage has all the modern conveniences and benefits you’d expect from a city its size, including a busy music scene. The city is home to numerous live venues and recording studios, and hosts numerous music festivals during the year–including the Anchorage Folk Festival, the Alaska Irish Music Festival, and Summer Meltdown, which generally features rock and metal bands.
With the venues, recording studios and regular music activity that happens in Anchorage, the city offers a surprising amount of opportunity for aspiring recording engineers, live audio techs, or music producers. And due to our professional connections, the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action in ways other recording schools can’t match.
The secret to our success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. During our inexpensive, 6-month course, you'll be paired with a working professional in the recording industry who will personally train you during real recording and audio projects. Along the way, you'll make industry contacts of your own–contacts that can lead to future work. In fact, over 70 percent of our graduates go on to permanent industry jobs. You owe it to yourself to enroll in our Anchorage recording school, and see what we can do for your career!
We get our students jobs.
