Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Your Fairbanks, Alaska
Recording School Alternative
Your FAIRBANKS, ALASKA RECORDING SCHOOL
An audio engineering school all the way up in Fairbanks? You bet! We’re the Fairbanks RECORDING CONNECTION, the only audio engineering school that gets you inside an actual Fairbanks recording studio, where you will study as an audio student apprentice (extern) and learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. The smartest way in Fairbanks to make a start in recording and audio production is by apprenticing in a Fairbanks recording studio–and that’s the RECORDING CONNECTION advantage.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars (plus relocation) to go to an audio engineering trade school elsewhere, when you can spend far less money and go to audio engineering school in a real recording studio here in Fairbanks. Get on the inside track, learn directly from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program available anywhere.
Located deep in Alaska’s interior among a diversity of beautiful natural scenery, the city of Fairbanks is home to around 35,000 people. A town this small and remote might seem an unlikely place to learn recording, but actually there is a fairly active music scene here, with lots of indie bands performing in the area in genres ranging from bluegrass to punk. Fairbanks hosts a number of music-related festivals during the year, including a Summer Arts Festival, Summer and Winter Folk Festivals, and most notably, the Clucking Blossom, in which local bands of all genres give the general public a sampling of the musical diversity to be found here.
Keeping step with the Fairbanks music scene, several live venues and recording studios are found in the area to accommodate the needs of the music community. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Fairbanks, Alaska provides a surprising amount of opportunity.
The secret to the RECORDING CONNECTION's success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. During our inexpensive, 6-month course, you'll be paired with a working professional in the recording industry who will personally train you on recording and audio projects. The contacts you make along the way quite often lead to future jobs; in fact over 70 percent of our graduates get hired, sometimes by the very same studio where we placed them! You owe it to yourself to see what the Fairbanks RECORDING CONNECTION can do for you!
We get our students jobs.
