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

On Location, Or Remote.

A Recording School in Barrie, Ontario? Certainly! RECORDING CONNECTION is the only Barrie Recording School that places you inside an actual Barrie recording studio as an audio student extern, learning directly from the pros while you study audio engineeringmusic producing, mixing, live audio and more. In Barrie, the smartest way to launch a career in the recording industry is to start inside a Barrie recording studio as an extern. We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.

Why would you spend upwards of 10-50 thousand dollars (plus relocation) to go to recording school at some trade school or college, when for a fraction of that amount you can get the same recording school education inside an actual recording studio in Barrie? Make the smart choice, and get your education where the real action happens. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

Home to roughly 130,000 people, the city of Barrie is located along the shores of Lake Simcoe, about 93 km north of Toronto, on the northern edge of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe region. As part of this populated region, Barrie is home to an active music scene, and regularly sees touring and local bands performing in larger venues like the Barry Molson Centre or in smaller pubs and venues around town. Barrie has hosted numerous larger live music events such as Live 8 and the annual Warped Tour, and annually hosts a Jazz and Blues festival every June. One of the most noteworthy music industry pros to come out of Barrie is DJ/remixer Barry Harris, founding member of synthpop band Kon Kan and part of the remixing production team Thunderpuss, who has remixed hits for Madonna, Britney Spears, Spice Girls and many others.

Keeping step with ongoing musical needs of the area, Barrie is home to several quality recording studios–and its close proximity to Toronto affords even more real-world opportunities for aspiring music producers, recording engineers, sound designers and live audio techs. If you dream of a career in the music business, a surprising amount of opportunity awaits you in Barrie–and RECORDING CONNECTION can put you near the action where other recording schools can’t.

The secret to our success is our mentor-extern approach. We know you can’t possibly learn the real music business while sitting in some college classroom, so in our program, your ÒclassroomÓ is a real recording studio, and your personal instructor is a seasoned music industry professional. As you gain valuable hands-on experience in real recording projects, you’ll also make important industry connections that can help you land a job. In fact, because our students already have the inside track, many of them get hired! Enroll in our Barrie Recording School now, and you could be next.

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!
