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

On Location, Or Remote.

The Evansville Recording Connection

A recording school in Evansville, Indiana? Absolutely! The RECORDING CONNECTION is the only Evansville Recording School that hooks you up as an audio student extern inside an actual Evansville recording studio, while you learn 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 club DJ while working directly with the pros. In Evansville, the best way to get started in an audio career is by externing in an Evansville recording studio–and we’re the school that can put you there.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars to go to a typical recording trade school somewhere, when you can spend far less money and go to recording school in a real recording studio in Evansville. Be smart, get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient way to learn audio engineering and recording.

Located in southern Indiana just across the Ohio River from Kentucky, the city of Evansville anchors a greater metro population of over 300,000 people, and serves as the main hub for the Tri-State Area of Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois. Evansville is also home to an active music scene, with bands and artists representing a diversity of genres, including country, blues, rock, metal, rap and more. Among the notable musicians with ties to the Evansville area are “newgrass” musician John Cowan, country singer Jace Everett, Newsboys guitarist Jody Davis, and REO Speedwagon keyboardist Neal Doughty.

A number of live music venues and recording studios make their home in Evansville to accommodate the music activity happening here. If you are thinking about a career in audio as a live audio engineer, recording engineer or music producer, Evansville holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.

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!

Checking in with Students Near Evansville

People from all walks of life and in all corners of the country (and beyond) are finding their inner-voice everyday through our program. From the big cites to the small towns, men and women of every age are learning how turn passions into professions.

From sunup to sundown, a Recording Connection student is always working, somewhere. Take some time to read about one such member, Shoneen Stenftenagel of St Anthony, IN. She embodies the confidence, drive and talent we hope each student finds living inside themselves.

"To be honest, I have ADHD like crazy, so I do not do well in the classroom especially for long periods of time. I am actually a very intelligent person, I'm also taking classes in nursing as well. It's just that lesson time is something I just can't do, and I'm more of a hands on learner, so being in the studio and interacting with people, which I love, and doing that I actually get a lot of one-on-one attention with my mentor in particular. That is very much what I need from a learning style and my personality."

"I love all kinds of genres, country being my least favorite honestly, but I love them all. Basically, if I hear a song, I can repeat it after the first time. I learned very, very easily I realized I can remember things better, it's like if you put something in a riddle or a song, I can understand it easier. Even when I was taking classes in English and science and stuff like that I would make silly songs out of my text books and everything so I even use my music as a way to help me to memorize things for tests. Musics just like everything in the world I even put things on my wall by Plato, "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."

"I feel it gets too people more, like they hear you and relate more in a song and you can even be saying something mean towards a person, like songs about negative feelings, but I feel they don't get hurt by it as much because it sounds nicer, do you know what I mean? I love that, being able to capture a moment and a song or the fact that music couples use it to relate how they feel to other people like I want to be that person who artist used to express how they feel and different ways, ways that they can't by themselves."
