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

On Location, Or Remote.

Surrounded by water on three sides, Charlestown is steeped in history. Paul Revere began his famed midnight run in Charlestown, the Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on the peninsula where the city was established, and famed Civil War ship the Merrimack was constructed at the Charlestown Navy Yard.

But you didn’t come here for a history lesson, right? Fast forward 200 years and the “Townies” that had dominated the area in previous decades began to fade as the upwardly mobile began to move in, taking advantage of the brick buildings and waterfront real estate that the Charles and Mystic Rivers provide.

Charlestown served as a backdrop for many “Boston” films including Good Will Hunting, The Town, and The Departed. It’s also home to the oldest bar in the state, the Warren Tavern. Established in 1780, the bar was visited by George Washington and Ben Franklin and was a favored watering hole for Revere.

The proximity to Boston affords Charlestown residents an almost never-ending buffet of arts and entertainment. In addition to the inherited history of the area, museums, performing art centers, and monuments dot the landscape. Hop on the Orange line to catch a Bruins or Celtics game at the TD Garden. Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, is just a bit West of there.

Charlestown itself is just about one square mile in size, so Boston is often the destination to catch large touring acts. The city does have live music at a smattering of bars, including the Tavern at The End of the World and the aforementioned Warren.

But that doesn’t mean you have to go to Boston to learn how to produce the music played at the larger venues in Boston. That’s what the Charlestown Recording Connection offers yuppies and Townies alike: a place in the neighborhood to get hands-on experience with a recording professional.

From day one, you’ll be placed into a working studio for one-on-one learning with a mentor. We offer programs in audio engineering, mixing, producing, and almost anything else you’ll need in the music recording industry. Even how to properly set up a microphone!

However, our mentors are here to work – it is their job after all. You’ll need to be dedicated, responsible, and ready to learn. Our mentors work with some of the biggest names in music – they don’t have time for someone who isn’t willing to work.

Are you ready to work? Apply today. The Charlestown Record Connection program will give you the tools you need to create a career in music. Who knows? Maybe you’ll make some history of your own.

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!
