Looking for a great recording school in Columbus, Georgia? Look no further than the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Columbus Recording School that gets you working as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Columbus recording studio, where you will learn mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trip hop, techno, house, trance and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. In Columbus, Georgia, the best way by far to make a start in the audio recording industry is by apprenticing in a Columbus recording studio. That’s where we come in.
You could spend 20-50 thousand dollars to go to a recording trade school somewhere, or you could spend a fraction of that amount and go to recording school in a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, learn directly from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient way to learn audio engineering and music production.
Columbus, Georgia is a city of about 190,000 located in the western part of the state near the Alabama border.

Noteworthy bands and artists with ties to this area include blues legend Ma Rainey, blues guitarist Robert Cray, singer/songwriter Bebo Norman, and American Idol runner-up Justin Guarini, to name a few.
