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

On Location, Or Remote.

We hit different and here is why:

Recording Arts Universities are in place to prepare you for the recording studio after four years and up to $150,000 of debt. The Recording Connection AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS IN ATLANTA are designed to put you in a professional recording and engineering studio ON DAY ONE.

See the difference? Our students work one-on-one with industry professionals in a real-world environment from the jump. Working with industry-standard gear, bringing in local and internationally known acts, and producing the music you listen to every day, our MUSIC RECORDING MENTORS will show you what it means to run a studio.

Instead of a syllabus that might have been created a decade ago, our curriculum is based on what sound designers do and what music technology looks like today. But our professional audio engineers will also introduce you to music theory, how to communicate with artists, and tried-and-true processes that music producers have used for years.

Many of our graduates find work as soon as the programs are finished, often in the very studios they externed at. Some start their own studios and others find work before they even finish the program! There are no guarantees of course – but do you want to start living your life in nine months or four years?

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!

Here's what Former Atlanta Students have to Say About Recording Connection

When I thought that getting into a new industry seemed like an insurmountable task, Recording Connection and my experience with my mentor, gave me more opportunities than I knew what to do with. I'm very lucid about what my next steps are going into the New Year. And the resources I've gained in these few months seem more valuable than my four-year college degree.

Sam Alefsen in Decatur, Georgia

I knew right when I came across RRFC on the internet that it would be the perfect way for me to learn. It's one thing to read and learn about a skill from a book, but being able to apply it is what really counts. The ability to work hands-on has been such an exciting experience and I have been applying my knowledge in an actual professional setting! This style of learning has made this program worth-while and has made my learning experience much more enjoyable
