Recording Connection
Audio School


Looking for a great Gainesville Recording School to help launch your career? Look no further than the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only recording school that gets you inside an actual Gainesville recording studio, where you will train as an audio student apprentice (extern) and learn mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), post production audio and club DJ. There’s no better way to get started in the recording industry in Gainesville than to start inside a Gainesville recording studio as an apprentice–and no better school than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars to go to recording school at a college or trade school, when you can go to recording school in a real recording studio for far less! Play it smart–learn directly from the pros, get on the inside track, and get your education in a real-world environment. Our audio recording school alternative is by far the smartest, most cost efficient way to launch your career in audio engineering or music production.

Gainesville, Florida is a city of about 125,000 people situated in the northern part of the state. Although Gainesville is not as high-profile in the music business as Nashville or L.A., it actually has a strong, vibrant music scene, nurtured in part by the low cost of living and the presence of the massive University of Florida campus. In fact, Blender Magazine recently named Gainesville the Best Place to Start a Band in the United States.  Indeed, Gainesville has produced quite a few nationally-known bands and artists, including Less than Jake, Sister Hazel, John Vanderslice, Steven Stills, and legendary rockers Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, to name a few. Two members of The Eagles, Bernie Leadon and Don Felder, also have ties to the Gainesville area. For a time, Gainesville even had its own music video station.

Today, Gainesville’s music scene continues to be strong and active, with plenty of venues and recording studios to accommodate bands and artists. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, there’s plenty of activity in Gainesville to keep you busy.

With our many professional connections and relationships forged over the years, the RECORDING CONNECTION is in a unique position to help fulfill your dreams of a career in the recording industry. Our secret is the mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we pair you with a working audio professional who trains you on real recording and audio projects, helping you make vital industry contacts along the way. Over 70% of our graduates go on to permanent industry positions, and you could be next!  You owe it to yourself to see what our Gainesville RECORDING SCHOOL can do for your career.
