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

On Location, Or Remote.

We hit different and here is why:

A few decades ago, The Recording Connection was started to give students a REAL EDUCATION when it came to making music. We felt learning how to make music in a classroom just couldn’t compare with actually sitting behind the glass in a real-world setting. So that’s where we started putting those that had the determination to make music their life.

We feel it is a revolutionary way to teach those that want to find jobs in audio engineering, music production, post-production, mixing, mastering, and other aspects of how to work in a recording studio. Many of our mentors grew up in the four-year university “bubble.” Once they heard about us, they fell in love with the way we teach AUDIO RECORDING IN FORT WORTH, TX.

You get the experience of industry insiders. You get to work on the gear the pros use. You get to work with a variety of artists as well as your own music. And you’ll do it all in a real-world studio in your home town – or even just your home.

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!
