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

On Location, Or Remote.

Your Elizabeth, NJ Audio Recording School

An audio engineering school in Elizabeth, New Jersey? Certainly! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that teaches you the ropes of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle, etc.), club DJ, post production audio and more by placing you inside an Elizabeth area recording studio as an audio student extern. In Elizabeth, NJ, there is simply no better way to break into the music business than to extern inside an actual recording studio. We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.

Don’t waste your money (up to $50,000 and even more) to attend an audio engineering school in a college or trade school when we can train you in the heart of the action, in a real recording studio, for far less money. Make the smart choice for your career, and get trained by working directly with the pros. Our recording school alternative is the most effective way to learn audio engineering, and it is also the most cost-effective choice you’ll find anywhere.

Located just south of Newark, the port city of Elizabeth is home to about 125,000 people. Known primarily as a hub of transportation and industry, Elizabeth hosts one of the world’s busiest ports, the Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal. Elizabeth also hosts an active music scene, with bands and artists playing regularly in venues throughout Elizabeth and Newark. Additionally, the town’s proximity to the major music industry hub of New York City makes it a welcome alternative learning location for aspiring audio engineers, music producers, mixers and electronic musicians who prefer the suburbs to the urban chaos of the big city.

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!

The secret to the RECORDING CONNECTION's success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) learning approach. Unlike our competition, we bypass the classroom environment completely; as our student, you are placed as a working apprentice (extern) inside a real recording studio, where all your training is conducted on-the-job, not in a classroom. During our affordable 6-month course, you'll be taught one-on-one by a working music producer or audio engineer, someone who knows how the music business really works. You'll also gain plenty of hands-on experience working on real recording projects–not to mention that you'll make plenty of industry connections that can lead to future work. In fact, over 70 percent of our students get hired in the industry, largely because they were trained on the inside! You owe it to yourself to find out what our Elizabeth audio engineering school can do for your career.
