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

On Location, Or Remote.

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why:

They say those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach. But Recording Connection mentors do both! We partner with PRO MUSIC PRODUCERS for our Denver audio engineering schools, which means you’ll be working with industry insiders from day one. You’ll learn in the DENVER AUDIO RECORDING STUDIOS they work in, use the gear they use, and work with the artists they work with.

The ivy-covered walls of a well-known university may have decades-old name recognition, but the talent our Denver audio engineer educators work with are making hits in the music business TODAY. Doesn’t it make sense to learn in a real-world studio with a professional DENVER MUSIC PRODUCER instead of some stuffy classroom?

At the end of our DENVER AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION PROGRAMS, you’ll have a portfolio of finished work, the experience of working in a live recording studio, and connections not normally available to you in a classroom setting. And the Recording Connection does it all at a fraction of the cost and in less than a year!

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!

Close to Home or In Your Home
10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

Whether you live in Capitol Hill or the Highlands, LoDo or Washington Park, there is a Recording Connection near you. And while there are many DENVER CO AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS to choose from, we offer something unique, especially during times of quarantines and social-distancing. Remote learning from Recording Connection is nothing new. We’ve spent decades perfecting the curriculum to allow externs to follow our programs and workshops anywhere they have a fast enough computer and dependable internet connection. After all, the music keeps playing—even during a worldwide pandemic. Even when studios are running on all cylinders, the convenience of learning remotely is just one more way we put our students first. We understand that life moves pretty fast—with work, family commitments, and other day-to-day pressures on your time. Luckily, MUSIC PRODUCTION IN DENVER isn’t your normal nine to five job. In the studio or in your home, we’ll work around your schedule.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?
It isn't. Become a Music Legend. You are too good not to be true to your dreams. Get Started Now.

Work with the Stars and Amplify

We choose our Denver mentors using very strict guidelines. First, they have to be good at what they do. Many of our mentors have won multiple Grammy awards and worked with even more Grammy award winners. They have the talent to spare. But they also need a desire to mold the next generation of music producers. From audio engineers and music producers to beatmakers and Live DJs, our mentors look forward to seeing what you have to offer the music industry. And with the hands-on nature of our programs, you could be showing local, regional, and national acts the talent you bring to the table as well. This is where we feel Recording Connection provides the most bang for your buck: Connections. If you prove you can do the work, and hold yourself professionally during these sessions, you’ll never know who will come calling for your services. Our most successful students have been hired by other studios to work in-house, while others have been hired to travel with touring acts. Our students have been hired by their mentors and still more have gone on to open their own shops, start their own labels, or hit the road with artists like Aminé, Beyoncé, and others. But they put in the time, the effort, the blood, and the tears to make that happen for themselves. We’ll give you the foundation, but we can’t guarantee a career. That’s up to you. If you want to make it you’ll learn the industry from the inside, build a brand, and produce your portfolio. A university may have name recognition but the DALLAS RECORDING CONNECTION PROGRAM gets you training in accord with real, up to the moment practices, with real working pros. We do it in months, too, not several years. All those college and university programs offer is a degree. Just consider what that piece of paper would mean to the pros who do the work, day in and day out. With us, you could already have three years of experience in audio production, as a music producer, live sound engineer or DJ or beatmaker. Just think of how much work you can do and how many credits you can amass in four years. What makes more sense to you?

Here's what Former Denver Students have to Say About Recording Connection

This school is amazing. I had Sam Zulfer, who, not only was incredibly knowledgeable, but also had honest and helpful advice about how to go about my future in the music industry. I work overnights at a trauma center and Sam was always understanding about contact hours- which is huge when you wake up 3 hours before the school office closes. He also made sure I had the best experience possible by checking in and offering any help whether it was tutoring or just walking me through something on the phone. Found out we were both Chicago kids so extra points for that. The curriculum was straight forward and affordable for what you learn and get to apply through a hands on standpoint. Looking forward to finding my place with the education gained.

Jamie Woody in Thornton, Colorado

My overall experience with my course and mentors alike has truly helped me further my interest and in my career of music. Training with real pros and having access to state of the art software has been very crucial for my education and also super fun. I’ve gotten comfortable with both of my mentors! Enough so to share my music on a personal level. Collaboration with my academic facilitator (SamZ) and mentor (JoshD), make things that I didn’t understand prior easy to figure out and problem solve like never before. The recording connections program has boosted my education without putting me in debt. And Helps me find a Job! The industry standard and hands-on work I do makes me a better candidate to find a job in the music industry and a overall better educated person. I learn much better in this setting Vs in a classroom and during the virus I’ve been able to work from home on my program...I’m glad that I found out about this program, for the insight it gained me and the credited experience it rewards! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM TO ANYONE LOOKING TO GET INTO MUSIC

You’ve got to put in your effort. You have to show the studio you’re actually going to show up, you’re going to be there, you’re going to work hard, and you know your stuff.
