Nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the city of Fort Collins is located an hour north of the Denver metro, serving as home to around 150,000 people. Known for its hometown atmosphere, Fort Collins consistently makes the list of “Best Places to Live” in the U.S. by Money Magazine, and its scenic downtown is the model after which Disney theme parks’ “Main Street USA” was designed. As it turns out, Fort Collins is also home to a thriving independent music scene, fueled in part by the presence of Colorado State University, with bands and artists from many different genres performing in venues across the city, and even drawing talent from nearby Denver. Every spring, the Fort Collins Music Experiment (FoCoMx) features hundreds of local bands in dozens of Fort Collins venues, and in late summer, Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest takes over the historic downtown with lots of local music offered free and open to the public.
Considering the busy and active music scene in Fort Collins, it’s little wonder that there are quite a few high quality recording studios in the area. Whether you want to be a music producer, audio engineer, live audio tech or recording artist, the Recording Connection can train you in one of these professional facilities, effectively turning the studio into your personal classroom.
Our success in breaking people into the industry is due to our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach.
