The Boulder, CO Recording Connection

If you’re looking for a quality recording school in Boulder, Colorado, you’ve just found the most innovative program available. We’re the Boulder RECORDING CONNECTION, the only recording school that gets you inside an actual Boulder recording studio, where you will train as a studio student apprentice (extern) while you learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), club DJ and post production audio. The best way to enter the recording industry in Boulder is to apprentice (extern) in a Boulder recording studio–and we’re the ones who can make that happen for you.

Why spend upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to a typical recording trade school when you can get on the inside track by attending recording school in a real recording studio for far less money? Be smart, learn from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

Home to the University of Colorado at Boulder, this arts-friendly city has also had a vibrant music scene for many years, covering genres from folk-acoustic to punk, and just about everything in between. Live music can regularly be heard along the picturesque outdoor walking/shopping area Pearl Street Mall, both from scheduled bands and street artists. Among the live music venues in Boulder is the noteworthy Fox Theatre, which spotlights both local and traveling acts.

While much of the music activity is from indie bands and artists, a number of these acts have garnered national attention.  Among the notable bands with ties to Boulder are The Samples, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, The String Cheese Incident, The Fray, and 3Oh!3.

Allow your mentors to assist you with the development of your recording skills.
My mentor and I have been discussing in great detail about mics, placement, applications, and concepts. I have been working and recording material for companies and projects on almost a constant rate now, so my mentors and I have been going through somewhat of a crash course on mic usage in real life, practical studio recordings since that's what I am doing all the time now. …Both of my mentors always let me pick their brains constantly with questions that I am sure to them are second nature. I have been developing my ear and understanding of full song mixing, and the concepts of compression, limiting, and EQ on an individual instrument level, virtual instrument, and then a mastering/ mix-down level, so, really helpful and exciting as I hear my recordings and mixes getting better and better.
