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

On Location, Or Remote.

Your CHARLESTON, SC MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

If you’re looking for a great recording school in Charleston, South Carolina, you’ve come to the right place! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Charleston Recording School alternative that gets you working inside an actual Charleston recording studio as an audio student extern, learning directly from the pros as you study mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), post production audio and club DJ. There’s no better way to launch a career in audio in Charleston than by externing in a Charleston recording studio–and no better school than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.

Don’t be fooled: it can cost anywhere between 20-50 thousand dollars to go to recording school at a college or trade school, and sometimes even more. Why go to that expense when you can go to our recording school alternative in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount? Be smart, get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available.

Charleston, South Carolina is located along the Atlantic coast, hosting a population of around 125,000 people. Although not a town many people automatically associate with the music business, Charleston is home to an active and diverse music scene, with genres that include rock, hip-hop, jazz, and blues. Beach music, a rock/R&B shuffle style native to South Carolina, is a prominent genre in the Charleston scene as well.  A wide range of local and touring acts regularly play live at venues large and small around town, including the Music Farm and The Pour House. J.B. Pivot’s is a popular venue for beach music, where people regularly come to dance ‘The Shag’, South Carolina’s official dance.

Charleston is also home to several quality recording studios, accommodating the ongoing needs of the music scene here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in Charleston.

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!
