The Colorado Springs Recording Connection
Looking for a great Colorado Springs Music School to learn recording and audio engineering? You’ve just found the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only music school that gets you inside an actual Colorado Springs recording studio, where you will learn as a studio student apprentice (extern) while you study your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trance, trip hop, house music, acid house and more), post production audio and electronic DJ.
