Higher Education Music and Audio Production Programs
Work with the Stars and Amplify
With the Columbus Recording Connection, you’ll learn the physical and psychological properties of making music, you’ll do it in less time and less money, and you’ll be getting one-on-one mentoring from an industrial insider to help build an unshakeable foundation. But that may not even be the best part of our programs.
In a university setting, you’d be working with other students, bouncing ideas off of one another. Maybe you’d get the occasional “guest” speaker. There are no such things as guest speakers when you’re working with your mentor. We offer the opportunity to land weekend gigs, the chance to go on the road, and employment prospects you just can’t get in a college setting.
The Recording Connection offers opportunities. The opportunity to learn from and work with a music professional. The opportunity to make connections with people that may be looking to hire you in the coming months. The opportunity to build your portfolio to send to potential clients. With us, you’re building a resume. At a “name” school, you’re working on your GPA.
What makes more sense?
But while you could be getting these opportunities on a weekly basis, how you handle yourself makes all the difference in the music-making world. Are you texting friends, wandering the studio, or showing up late and leaving early? Or are you making yourself indispensable? From anticipating when a client might need a fresh bottle of water, to taking over the entire session, the impressions you make now will come to fruition in the future.
Sometimes the very near future. Students in our programs have been hired in the days after graduating, within the very same studio where they learned. Or they’ve been hired at other recording studios, based on a good word from your mentor. Opening their own studios has even been the reality of those who wanted to call their own shots. Some students have even been hired halfway through completing the program they’re enrolled in!
We didn’t give them those jobs. We gave them the opportunities to earn those jobs. What will you be earning during your time with us?
