Located off the eastern coast of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island is a regional municipality encompassing the communities of Sydney, Glace Bay, New Waterford, Louisbourg and several others, with a combined population of around 100,000 people. Although this relatively rural area is not a place many people would readily identify with the music business in general, Cape Breton nurtures an active music scene. Due to its Scottish roots, Cape Breton is particularly known as a centre for traditional Canadian-Celtic music, although other genres are represented as well. Live music in a variety of styles can be regularly heard in pubs and venues throughout the island. Among the more noteworthy musicians from this area are traditional fiddlers Ashley MacIsaac and Buddy & Natalie MacMaster; Celtic group the Barra McNeils; folk artists The Rankin Family; singer/songwriter Gordy Sampson (ÒJesus, Take the WheelÓ); Canadian Idol runner-up Mitch MacDonald; and indie rock band Slowcoaster.

Cape Breton is home to several quality recording studios which keep step with the ongoing needs of the music scene. If you desire to become a music producer, recording artist or audio engineer, Cape Breton offers a surprising amount of real-world learning opportunities. With the help of RECORDING CONNECTION, one of these studios could easily become your personal classroom.

Our industry edge comes from our mentor-extern approach. We know you can’t learn the music business inside a stale college classroom, so instead, we place you where the action happens: in a real recording studio. Your instructor, a seasoned music professional, will train you one-on-one using our curriculum, giving you hands-on experience with real recording projects and giving you the chance to meet and connect with other music industry professionals. This unique combination of practical experience and industry connections gives you an insider’s advantage with job openings unmatched by any other music school on the planet. Why wait? Apply to our Cape Breton Music School today, and discover why many of our graduates get hired.

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!
