The Fort Myers, Florida Recording Connection

If you’re looking for a great Ft. Myers-Naples area music school to learn audio engineering, you’ve come to the right place! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only music school that gets you working as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Ft. Myers-Naples recording studio, where you will learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (trance, trip hop, house music, acid house and more), club DJ and post production audio. In the Ft. Myers-Naples area, the best way to launch a career in audio engineering or music production is by apprenticing in a recording studio in Ft. Myers or Naples–and the RECORDING CONNECTION is the school that can get you there.

Reality check: you can easily spend 50 thousand dollars or more to go to a music trade school somewhere, plus the cost of relocation.  Why do that, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to music school in a real recording studio in the Ft. Myers-Naples area? Be smart, learn from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our music recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program you’ll find anywhere.

Checking in with Fort Myers, FL Students

To help raise awareness of the accomplishments of our students, The Recording Connection is taking the time to share the stories of some of our promising students. The following comes from the interview of Frank Gillis of Fort Meyer, FL.

"It's been going great, I've learned so much. Definitely one of the best things I've done with myself. One of the best experiences of being able to go in there every day, you know whenever I'm available, whenever they're available which is pretty much all day, I mean they have sessions pretty much all throughout the day and night. So that works great with my schedule and the guys down there are just great.

"They're very helpful, very knowledgeable and they take all of my questions very seriously…Almost every single time I leave there knowing a lot more after discussing it than I did just reading through the material. It's been a really great experience."

-- Frank Gillis, Fort Myers, FL
