Featured Chicago Music Mentors on Location or Remote

While the Windy City may be the home of the blues, artists from all genres come to Chicago to perform, practice, and record their music. You can also start learning audio engineering and music production at several area schools.

But choose wisely. Do you really want to spend six figures on a four-year university, be stuck in a classroom, and learn from someone who maybe hasn’t made a record in years?

Or do you want to be placed in a fully immersive environment getting one-on-one facetime with a producer that’s been making the music you listen to for years?

Our Chicago mentors have decades of experience working with pop stars, hip hop legends, and rock gods:

  • Plain White T’s
  • Neptunes
  • Smashing Pumpkins
  • Kelly
  • Twista
  • OK GO
  • Buddy Guy
  • Los Lonely Boys
  • George Thorogood
  • Mac Miller
  • Kimo Williams
  • Hall and Oates
  • Keanu Reeves
  • Rolling Stones
  • The Who
  • Yolanda Adams
  • Blues Travelers
  • Smokey Noreful
  • The Muppets Touring Company
  • R Kelly

The Recording Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or audio engineering and music production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed in a professional recording studio and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience. You learn what it takes to make it in the music business from the inside alongside industry professionals. This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.
