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

On Location, Or Remote.

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why: 

Industry insiders, music influencers, and audio professionals – instead of reading about them in a classroom, we put you in a studio with them. The Recording Connection gives you one-on-one time with A PROFESSIONAL BOSTON MUSIC PRODUCER in a real-world recording studio. The hands-on education and immediate access to working producers, engineers, and other industry professionals will give a unique perspective on how the music industry operates.

For many students, our six to nine-week programs offer a way to fill a resume, build your brand, and create a portfolio while you learn. Many students have jobs waiting for them once the program ends, either in the Boston studio they externed at or another studio based on the recommendation of their mentor. Our most determined students find work before graduating.

The Recording Connection AUDIO ENGINEER SCHOOLS IN BOSTON offers recording studios, not classrooms. Sound Engineers, not teachers. Streamlined curriculum based on the real world, not a pre-established syllabus.

This isn’t just another educational facility, this is real life. Your life.

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!

Featured Boston Music Mentors on Location or Remote

The Recording Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or audio engineering and music production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed in a professional recording studio and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience.

This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.

10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

The Boston area is one of the largest, oldest, and most vibrant cities in the United States. From the Leather District to the Theater District, the South End to the Back Bay, Downtown and Chinatown - there are many BOSTON AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS to choose from. But how many allow you to learn from home? While Recording Connection has partnerships with studios in the Boston metro area, we were also one of the first to offer remote learning to our students. With the uncertainty of Covid-19, we strive to keep our mentors and students safe. We still offer in-person education, but with remote learning opportunities, we’ve made our programs that much more accessible.

Audio and Music Production Programs

Work with the Stars and Amplify

Many audio production schools will teach you music theory, how to create live sound, offer hip hop, live DJ, and EDM classes. They may even offer state of the art digital audio workstations like Pro Tools, Ableton, and Logic Pro to work with. But they all lack one key aspect. Opportunities. Networking. Meeting the people you need to meet to get your music career started. To find work in the Boston music scene, who you know is just as important as what you know. With the Boston Recording Connection, you’ll be working within the music scene on day one. Our audio engineers work with local bands, regional acts, and touring superstars. Each and every session is an opportunity for you to make a connection with an act, their technicians, or their producers. Show them you know what you’re doing and they’ll remember your name. We feel learning about the music business from within the music business makes the most sense. A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all you have is a degree. In that same period of time, you could already have three years of career experience. What makes more sense?

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

Steve is a wonderful mentor and teacher, he is always ready to help and is extremely patient! He is an amazing engineer with broad knowledge of the music industry. The studio is extremely cozy and clean and his staff are always very welcoming and professional. I would definitely recommend their services of all kinds! 10/10

Jeremy Ng in Boston, Massachusetts

Recording Connection helped me realize that Audio Engineering and Music Production was the career path I wanted to take in life. I found Recording Connection when searching for alternative forms of higher education in music, and I was thrilled to see that there was something out there that would give me hands-on experience and instruction. I studied at Infinite Recording in Reading, MA. Steve Catizone, my mentor, showed me everything I needed to know about Audio Engineering and Music Production, and was super helpful throughout the program. When Steve was not available, I could always go to my E-Book to answer my questions, as well as my peers and Steve's right hand-man, Mike Scuderi. Overall, this program taught me everything I needed to know to start in the music industry and I highly recommend it to any young person who is an aspiring Sound Engineer, Mixing Artist, or Producer.
