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

On Location, Or Remote.

Who will be the next rock, country, hip-hop or EDM icon to come out of Carrollton, Texas? Home to a diverse bunch of musicians and performers including Demi Lovato, Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson, Ryan Cabrera, Rex Brown (of Pantera), and Lil Twist to name just a few, Carrollton is a great place to be to launch a career in music, as an artist, music producer, in-studio audio engineer, live music engineer and more.

Located about 20 miles north of Dallas, Carrollton has been named the 19th best place to live in the U.S. by Money Magazine in 2006, the 15th best small city by the same magazine in 2008, and one of the top 100 places to live by Relocate America.

Several corporations agree. Carrollton has agricultural and industrial roots but is now home to several corporate headquarters. Heelys, Fastsigns, and Motel 6 all make their home here. And the town’s largest employer is Halliburton, an international oilfield services and equipment corporation with around 1,000 employees at the regional office.

One of the largest events of the year harkens back to Carrollton’s beginnings. Festival at the Switchyard is a way for the city to tip its cap to the railroad that brought real growth to the town nearly 150 years ago. The Toadies, Stone Temple Pilots, and Barenaked Ladies are just a few of the headliners of the yearly festival.

That doesn’t mean live music happens just once a year in Carrollton. With an outdoor amphitheater that seats more than 1,000. The nearby The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory has three separate amphitheaters seating a total 34,000 people. Several Carrollton restaurants and bars Including the Redrock Bar and Grill, 55 Degrees, and Rock & Brews at The Colony feature local acts which makes Carrollton a great place to take in a show. A number of music schools in the area ensure that musicians will be performing and creating new music for years to come.

Are you interested in working with local singers or national acts? Do you want to help musicians sound their very best? Or maybe work on your music to focus your sound? At the Carrollton Recording Connection, you’ll get access to a working recording studio and have one-on-one time with an audio professional.

But you have to put in the work. This isn’t an hour long once-a-week lesson, a hobby, or someplace to hang out. You’ll get hands-on experience from the start and are expected to be on time during the program. However, we’ll work around your schedule. After all, producing music isn’t a 9-to-5 job.

With Carrollton Recording Connection, there isn’t a reason you have to go to Dallas to learn audio engineering either. Our mentor has worked with Ice-T, Clay Aiken, and the Rev. Horton Heat as well as several media companies and agencies. You’ll get all the education you’ll need from the comfort of Carrollton. Apply today.

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!
